Friday 7th September – Hiraeth, a celebration of the Brecon Beacons

We’re very excited by this event that the Felin Fach Griffin are hosting next week.  The event will include many Brecon Beacons’ businesses and characters including:

  • Talgarth Mill will have a stall selling goods produced by their own “Bakers Table”.  They will also have flour on sale with which Ross Bruce (head chef) will make some pasta, as part of a demonstration. This pasta will then be eaten later on in the evening
  • Joe, the Felin Fach Griffin Gardener, will be giving a talk entitled “the Tempermental Oven” and will also be running tours of his organic kitchen garden and will answer questions and give advice
  • There will be a member of the Wye and Usk Foundation doing a wildlife trail around the garden and at the brook for children
  • There will be a foraging trip with Adele Nozedar around the garden and local hedgerows
  • Natural artist, Kate Raggett, making a big piece of art work. She will also be showing some of her abstract pieces
  • Sue Hayward from Waen Brewery, one of the only female brewsters in Wales, will be making a beer especially for the day that will be brewed with beetroot from the kitchen garden
  • Buster from Brecon Brewing is making a very special Hiraeth Brew, but hes’s not telling us what’s in it!
  • Ticket holders will receive half a pint of each beer so they can vote on their favourite.
  • All food will be cooked outside on the barbecue and a clay oven using local charcoal and wood. There will be cooking demonstrations on both the barbecue and the clay oven.  Meat will be seasoned with Liz Knight’s Meat Rubs

  • Chef on the Run have produced two exclusive products for the evening using our gardens produce. A “Hiraeth” Blackurrant Ketchup and a fab Rhubarb & Ginger jam.
  • There will be fruit, veg, bread and garden produce stalls including products from The Griffin’s own kitchen and kitchen garden; 100 percent Hay which makes relishes, ketchup, chilli sauces etc.; Pips Cider; Black Mountain Smokery; Talgarth Mill; The Great English Outdoors; The Hours Book Shop, Griffin Goodies, Chef on the Run, Ty Gwyn Cider, Wyld Wood Willow, Gareth Irwin, The Waen Brewery, Brecon Brewing
  • There will be live music later on in the evening from Johnny Crows Garden; Repercussion; and Dan James & Al Cooper.

The Festival will last from approx 6pm-midnight and will cost £20 for adults which will include all food and a pint of beer (half of Waen, half of Brecon Brewing); and £12.50 for children (under 6 free) which will include all food and a glass of Aber apple juice. The plates and cutlery will all be organic and compostable and so will be composted in the garden and (in effect) eaten at next year’s Hiraeth – they will come from and there will be  Too Good To Waste doggy boxes for any leftovers.
