The seventh episode of The Fifth Quarter Podcast has gone live.
We’re brought to you once again this month with the support of Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council’s Food Heartland and have a great episode for you.
We’re talking to one of Northern Ireland’s best known dried fruit and nut producers which sources its ingredients from far and wide and hear from a County Down farm shop making a name for itself with local produce.
Michael Hall, the managing director of Kestrel Foods, the company behind the Forest Feast brand talks us through starting the business in his early 20s, travelling the globe to source the very best produce and securing a place for his products on the shelves of the UK and Ireland’s biggest supermarkets.
Kerry Angus of Angus Farm Shop in Greyabbey talks about the importance of provenance to her, whether it’s the beef and lamb raised on their home farm, the vegetables grown down the road or the sausage rolls and pies baked by her mother.
It’s a brilliant episode and some real insight from some of the Northern Ireland agrifood sector’s finest.
