Bristol’s unique citywide food event is getting ready to welcome some unlikely visitors.

 

Two pure-bred Guernsey show cows will be in Bristol City Centre from April 21 to 25 to highlight the current issues faced by farmers in the dairy industry.

 

Bristol Food Connections aims to connect people to all aspects of their food. From how and where it was grown, to who served it, how it tastes, makes us feel and the way it brings communities together.

 

With milk now cheaper than bottled water and record number of diary farmers going out of business, the main focus of the food event this year is the dairy industry.

 

Milking parlour

 

Dairy farmers are encouraged to take part in The Milking Parlour a 5 day immersive exhibition where political ecologist and artist, Nessie Reid, will be living with two cows in Anchor Square.

 

She will be milking them twice a day and creating a public platform for farmers, consumers and school children to discuss issues such as where food comes from, how we value it and hear from farmers who produce it.

 

Festival manager, Aine Morris said: “We believe it’s time for a new kind of food festival. One that connects farmers, growers and consumers so that good food is understood, valued and enjoyed.”
