Some of the area’s top local produce will be showcased at a food and drink event at Peel Farm tomorrow evening (Thursday).

As well as providing activities for all the family, including a nature tour, jam and pancake making, the Taste of Angus barbecue will highlight the farm’s own Highland beef and offer an opportunity to taste its recently launched Both Gin.

Also attending will be local suppliers Fresh Food Direct with seafood, Cherry’s Deli and Kirrie Real Ales as well as other agritourism businesses including Ardross Farm Shop and Craigie’s Farm Shop.

Live music on the night will also be supplied by local band Sonnet 65.

The free event, which will take place from 6pm-9pm, celebrates Peel Farms involvement in Scotland’s first Agritourism Monitor Farm study run by Scottish Enterprise and funded by both Scottish Enterprise and the Scottish Government.

Kim Gall, from Peel Farm, said: “We are so looking forward to our night market which will bring together some great agritourism businesses from across Scotland as well as serving up some delicious Peel Farm produce.

We hope that our customers flock to our summer’s evening of food and drink and taste some delicious Angus produce.”

The event draws to a close the 15-month Monitor Farm project designed to showcase the potential for agricultural businesses to diversify and future proof their businesses.
