And to finish the day off, the first of the walks organised in conjunction with the Ramblers Association, worked up an appetite with a 5 mile walk, sated the appetite with a 'Wye' themed meal in the Kings Head, and celebrated the Solstice with a walk up to Wye Crown.
There were more walks all week, taking in local farms, Perry Court and Ripple Farm Organics.
Local preservers, the Wooden Spoon were offering jam tasting, and cream teas overlooking jam production all week. A successful themed fish evening was held at the New Flying Horse, and a 'Wye BBQ' at the Kings Head, with meat from Wye Community Farm, and fresh produce from Perry Court and Ripple Farm.
Wye Bakery produced some special festival breads, the most popular being the 'Sunshine Sourdough'
Ticketyboo had 'A celebration of Children's early eating' on all week, also running a competition to name the doll sitting in an old-fashioned high chair outside their shop ( ). And, there were knitted vegetables hidden in shop windows around Wye (answers here).
With just a couple of barrels left on Sunday, it was up to the Kings Head to finish off the food festival with their 'Tasting Night', with tasters from their menu and from their suppliers, a packed out evening.
