The weather is looking great for Hellens Garden Festival this weekend and we are delighted that Kirsty from Little Batch will be serving up delicious foraged mocktails using Herefordshire flowers and herbs as well as milk from the Forest of Dean based Chase Farm

"For Hellens, most of my mocktail and iced tea menu will include foraged, garden grown or locally sourced ingredients, e.g. elderflower & lemon (balm & verbena) iced tea, rhubarb & rose ginger fizz, honeysuckle & hibiscus cooler."

Kirsty had been thinking of changing her milk supply for a while when we got in touch with her to see if we could help connect her with producers. "This initiative at Hellen’s is a good and timely reminder to make the switch!"

Kirsty is also conscious of the waste that can be inherent with the food vending industry "I’m also investing in a soda stream for the caravan to reduce my bottle recycling" isn't that a great idea?!
