WHAT? A Slow Food Celebration at Curraghchase Farm, where the Rigney family produce and sell their excellent free-range rare-breed pork. Come hungry: two young Curraghchase wild boar will be roasted over aged beech wood and served in fluffy baps with farm grown salad leaves and local chutney. Or maybe you’d prefer to sample Curraghchase dry-cured Tamworth ham served in ciabatta with rocket and a honey dressing from their own bees? Or homemade Curraghchase Shorthorn beef burgers or pork sausages cooked over charcoal, and washed down with Ballyhoura apple juice?
WHEN? Sunday 21 August, noon to 5pm
WHERE? Curraghchase, Kilcornan, Co Limerick (just off the N69 coast road)
WHY? All sorts of old school farming skills will be demonstrated, from bee-keeping to hot-horse shoeing with a master farrier, with talks on everything from wild forest mushrooms to pig, poultry and shorthorn cattle keeping, and demos on everything from basket-weaving to bread-making and polytunnel horticulture.
HOW MUCH? €5 with free parking; children accompanied by adults go free
