28.04.05
New angling and watersports centre opens at Stithians Lake

Visitors to the popular Food and Farming marquee are in for a tasty treat at the Organic South West stand (number 401). Featuring some of Cornwall's top organic products, cookery demonstrations and a free book about organic farming for children, Organic South West want people to try the 'great taste of organic' for themselves.

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 everything organic.

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.

For further information contact Traci Lewis, Organic South West project manager on 01579 371147 / 0787 0268654 or www.organicsouthwest.org.

The Objective One Programme for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly has invested in the Organic South West project through the European Agricultural Guidance and Guarantee Fund (EAGGF). This project is a Soil Association project also part funded by Defra to grow the organic market in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
