An organic farm near Truro will appear on BBC1’s Countryfile following a successful feasting event earlier this month.

From 5 to 8 October, Nancarrow hosted the 1,000 Mouths festival which saw guests attend 12 unique feasts at the farm over four days. All profits for the event are to be donated to global charity Action Against Hunger.

The team from BBC1’s Countryfile filmed at the Soil Association-certified farm during the festival. The aim of the event was to raise awareness about the sustainable production and consumption of meat whilst also raising funds for charity.

Three menus were presented each evening in one of three striking event spaces. Ticket holders arrived for cocktails and canapés, and live music, before tucking into feasts cooked by top chefs including Gill Meller, Andy Appleton, Ben Tish, and teams from Fifteen Cornwall, River Cottage and Hawksmoor, who joined resident chefs Darren Broom and Jack Bristow.

Each feast featured a cut of beef, cooked over fire, from just one of Nancarrow’s traditional breed Red Devon bullocks, and was presented alongside locally grown and foraged ingredients.

Steve Chamberlain, partner at Nancarrow said: “Having never hosted an event of this scale, we are delighted with how the weekend went, and have received some fantastic feedback from those that attended, as well as the brilliant chefs who came to the farm to cook for us.

“When planning the festival, our initial aims were to find a way to illustrate our ethos of sustainable meat production and consumption, and to raise funds for Action Against Hunger. We hope we have achieved both with 1,000 Mouths, and are thrilled that Countryfile were able to be part of the event, whilst also seeing what we do on a daily basis here at the farm.”

Francine Heggie, Head of Challenge & Community Events at Action Against Hunger said: “We are so grateful to have the support of Nancarrow Farm, who have shown that by celebrating and sharing food together we can also help to provide others with more sustainable access to good nutrition. The funds raised will go a long way to provide malnourished children around the world with healthier futures.

“We are also delighted that every donation made by guests each evening will be doubled by the UK Government as part of our Healthy Mums, Healthy Kids appeal, meaning even more children can grow up strong and reach their potential.”

1,000 Mouths at Nancarrow Farm will appear on BBC1’s Countryfile on Sunday 22 October from 6.15pm.

Nancarrow’s festive feasts will take place 2, 9 and 13 December 2017.
