Farmers will be serving fresh local produce including raw milk and cheese and raw milk protein shots.
Two farms have joined forces to host a new fitness festival in the hope to boost awareness of the health benefits of fresh dairy products.
Whin Yeats Dairy of Hutton Roof, Cumbria, will be serving raw milk and cheese alongside raw milk protein shots to guests at the first-of-its-kind event.
It was launched by personal trainer Emma Grunnill who has plans to encourage people to ‘have the confidence to be as healthy as they can be’.
Whin Yeats Dairy owner Clare Noblet said: “There are a number of health benefits of our milk, for example, it is not pasteurised, it is not homogenised and it still has its natural enzymes, as well as good cholesterol.
“Our milk is exceptionally clean and tested to ensure this, and we have strict milking procedures as part of the NSF Farm Assurance Programme promoting excellence in farming.
“We are really looking forward to the festival and starting a conversation about the benefits of raw milk.”
Steward Lambert of Kitridding Farm, near Kirkby Lonsdale, is hosting the event on July 29 ‘with the aim of educating guests about the health benefits of fresh, local produce’.
The farm grounds will also be used for exercise sessions including: boxercise, pilates, yoga, high intensity interval training (HIIT) and circuits.
“We are really pleased to be supporting Emma with this festival,” Mr Lambert said.
“We think what she [Emma] is doing is great; she is incredibly dedicated and is helping to make health and fitness easily accessible to everyone.
“We completely agree with her way of thinking that healthy eating equals a healthy body and this festival will be a great use of our facilities here at Kitridding Farm.”
