The inaugural New Forest Food & Drink Festival held in late 2016 proved the appetite for New Forest produce attracting over 1300 attendees to the 120 events. With this success now demonstrated, it’s important that this is built on so that we can continue to celebrate all that’s good about eating and drinking in the forest.
From vegetables to meat and wine to gin, the New Forest has a huge array of local goods and a superb selection of local establishments who serve these including hotels, restaurants, pubs and farm shops.
This NFBP event will look at how those connected with the food and drink industry can work together to ensure its future success. This will be an open discussion with a view to feeding into the 2017 Food & Drink Festival.
