With Spring Tide only a few months away, we’re keeping our fingers crossed for a sunny weekend!
This year we’re proud to be working in partnership with Dorset Food & Drink who as part of the Dorset AONB umbrella support local food events and festivals which also celebrate the rich diversity of the Dorset landscape.
Set in this fantastic location here at Hive Beach on Dorset’s famous Jurassic Coast, we look forward to welcoming visitors in the relaxed atmosphere of the food marquee with its great mix of colourful stalls where you can sample and buy a fantastic array of high quality local products which were truly ‘home grown’.
Spring Tide is all about buying and trying great local food and drink, meeting the producers as well as seeing what fantastic local arts and crafts are made right here on your doorstep. And new for 2013 is the Dorset Farmers Market Cookery Theatre so watch this space to find who’ll be demonstrating!
So expect to find everything on the shopping list from spring veg, fresh fish, local meat, artisan bread, cheeses plus a selection of locally made wines, beers and cider. We aim to connect you to the most extraordinary and delicious food experiences you will find anywhere. You can also meet some of the organisations supporting the local food networks and celebrating all that’s great about being outdoors in West Dorset.
The local food movement coupled with concerns about sustainability and the health of our planet really do matter to people who live here.
As a host of small, local food businesses continues to grow, we are delighted that some of them are able contribute to the success of the Spring Tide Festival. People here in West Dorset genuinely do care about where their food comes from and what they eat and drink. This is not just a trend or a fad: it is a fundamental shift in how intelligent consumers and food lovers alike choose to shop, eat and drink.
Long may it continue!
On behalf of NT West Dorset, and the Hive Beach Cafe, we look forward to welcoming you to Spring Tide 2013!
Big foodie love
