Who wouldn't want to spend the late May bank holiday weekend eating and feasting on an organic farm? No, just us then.

River Cottage's Food Fair has become a part of welcoming in the summer's foodie festivals and well, any excuse to sit outside round a fire and eat, chat and learn sounds good to us.
