 Straw Fest  

Sunday 22nd September 2019

12pm - 5pm

 A Farm to Fork Festival at Rock Farm Slane

 Straw Fest is an Autumn celebration of artisan and organic food supported by the Boyne Valley Food Series and Slane Food Circle. It is also part of our tradition of celebrating the bounty around the time of the Autumn Equinox at Rock Farmwhen we have plenty of produce to share. Harvest festival at Rock Farm is a time of hard work and joy as we reap the rewards of months of careful growing of vegetables and fruit.
