Cornwall has an excellent track record for producing quality,
innovative organic food, some of which will be used at the
show in live cookery demonstrations by local chefs. A popular
event at last year's show, visitors can sample the end results
and try the 'great taste of organic' for themselves. Amongst
the Cornish organic producers joining Organic South West are
Carleys of Cornwall and Barwick Farm, with samples of their
delicious range of organic products including this year's
basil pesto and Cornish clotted cream.
Staff from Organic South West, an organisation invested in
by Objective One and Defra to promote organic food and farming
in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, will be on hand to provide
information to farmers, local businesses and consumers on
Local herb growers, Westcountry Nurseries, are also launching
a range of organic culinary herb packs at the show with Italian,
French, English, pesto and medicinal herbs.
