Three of Devon’s most respected food and drink producers, Pipers Farm, Quicke’s and Sandford Orchards, would like to invite you to an autumn harvest feast on Saturday 6 October at 7pm. A heartfelt celebration of the county at this bountiful time of year, the evening will showcase the finest Devon produce, while shining a light on the central role that the landscape plays in producing multi award-winning meat, cheese and cider.
Barny Butterfield, owner of Sandford Orchards, will open the evening with a welcome drink and tour around the Cider Works, which has been the beating heart of Devon cidermaking for nearly a century, before a three-course meal is served, prepared by River Cottage chef, Connor Reed. Featuring Pipers Farm’s properly free range and slow-grown meat and a selection of Quicke’s clothbound cheeses, alongside plenty of seasonal vegetables, each course will be specially paired with a Sandford Orchard’s cider, offering a well-rounded taste of the county’s abundant rolling hills.
Expressing their shared love for Devon and the bounty it provides, hosts Peter Greig, founder of Pipers Farm, Mary Quicke MBE and Barney Butterfield from Sandford Orchards, will speak throughout the evening about how they work in harmony with nature to capture the essence of Devon in their food and drink, combining tradition and innovation to make the most of the land that they call home.
