What makes Enfield Food Festival different, and rather wonderful? It’s all about our extraordinary food producers.  Their businesses may be small but their enthusiasm and dedication are second to none.

Christine Smallwood’s been talking with some of the great names of the Enfield food scene, who will be at this year’s festival.

Christine says that:

“I was a big fan of all the companies I visited, but discovering the stories of the people who are behind the amazing produce from Forty Hall Farm, Holtwhite’s, Eat Live, Old Bakery Gin, and hearing more about Emma’s work as The Food Gatherer, was a heart-warming revelation. I hope these short pieces will help you to understand more about our thriving local food community. All of these people will be up for a chat with you at the Enfield Food Festival. Be sure to say “hello” and ask them your own questions.”
