Cornwall Wildlife Trust is one of two charities due to receive money from the Nancarrow Farm 100 Mouths Festival in October and they will be taking an active part in the event, inspiring visitors with their work protecting Cornwall’s wildlife and wild places.
It is Nancarrow’s 20th anniversary as an organic farm and they are planning for this year’s 1000 Mouths Festival to be a real celebration of sustainable farming. The Festival runs from Friday 4th October to Sunday 6th October at the farm in Zelah, near Truro.
During the day, there will be workshops, wild walks, fire pit demonstrations, talks and tastings, and in the evening some very special feasts cooked by top chefs. Cornwall Wildlife Trust will be running a number of activities for adults and children, including a wildlife treasure hunt. Sean O’Hea, Deputy Head of Nature Reserves at the Trust, will be joining panels to discuss farming, soil and wilder, grass-fed beef; as well as woodland management and sustainable firewood. There will also be leather making, wool spinning, and apple juicing.
Nancarrow is a working 100-acre organic farm, on the outskirts of Truro where they produce Red Devon beef, Suffolk lamb and Tamworth pork. Producing food in harmony with the environment is high on their list of priorities.
Over a thousand people are expected to visit Nancarrow to join in the festivities and to enjoy street food from the woodfired courtyard kitchens in the day and feasts in the barns in the evening, with live music. The menus will celebrate some of the finest produce from the South West, alongside organic beef from Nancarrow cooked up by some brilliant chefs. Vegetarians will also be catered for.
