Visitors will also be able to visit the Balcaskie Organic Farm, where Bowhouse is based.

This will include tours of the crowd-grazed cattle, followed by the opportunity to meet the Butchery at Bowhouse team, as well as tours of the East Neuk Market Garden plot.

The event will include lectures, music and hands-on activities

The Futtle Organic Brewery will also be open for the duration of the festival, with the tasting room hosting a series of in-flight wine and beer tastings.

There will be the opportunity to enjoy a picnic on a series of grassy mounds beyond Bowhouse – likely a favorite with visiting families – and live music in the market area, plus craft activities for children focused on the natural environment.

Organizer Lucy Hine said: “This is a brilliant little lineup for our first festival, bringing together some of the most important voices and top food and drink producers.

“Spots on my Apples brings together chefs, writers, growers, farmers, producers, beverage makers and activists to make this day truly special.

“It also allows you to get actively involved – chat directly with growers, growers and cooks – and learn from the professionals themselves – all in a beautiful countryside setting.”

Tickets cost £15 with under-16s admitted free at www.futtle.com.

Bowhouse opened as a manufacturing center for local food and beverage producers in the summer of 2017.
