Big Tent’s One Planet Food Village brings the very best of sustainable food and drink to Scotland’s leading green festival. You will find some of Scotland’s most innovative growers, farmers and artisan producers and all the food is sourced locally and much of it is organic.
Situated at the centre of the site near the Black Isle Main Stage is a beer tent hosted by the Black Isle Brewery. There is a wide selection of producers from across Fife and beyond catering for vegetarian and carnivores alike who want really good food.
The home farm at Falkland Estate has been producing a small range of organic food for a few years. Its range includes beef, pork, free range eggs, potatoes and swedes.
Look out for Falkland Estate pig and beef roasted on spits, great vegetarian food from the Pillars of Hercules and many more delicious produce from some of the most innovative growers, farmers and producers, including; Black Isle Brewery, Cairn O' Mohr, Nelsons of Culross, Laura's Chocolates, Original Smokies from Arbroath, Tunstalls Organic Bakery, Puddledub Buffalo, Sir Walter Raleigh Hot Potatoes, Peelham Farm, Fletchers of Auchtermuchty, Fisher and Donaldsons, Haggis Haggis, The Chocolate Tree, Scottish Catering Enterprise, Fair Shares and Brewsters.
The Food Demonstration Tent will play host to an array of interesting talks and workshops and there will also be Taste Adventures with Slow Food UK.
Visitors can also find information on Falkland Centre for Stewardship's One Planet Food project, a project geared to realise a health, sustainable and inclusive food culture.
