The Mortimer Country Food Fair was started by Carolyn Chesshire from Lower Buckton Boutique Hotel and Cookery School and Sheridan Swinson (and his fellow Director Edward Tobin) from Aardvark Books
The intention was to promote local food and craft producers, by featuring their products to local people who may have been unaware of how superb the food produced around them really was.
This year nearly 1,500 people came through the fair and many stallholders sold out of their produce by mid-afternoon.
Carolyn Chesshire is well known through her frequent radio contributions to Radio 4's food and travel programmes, and has also appeared on television.
Her property Lower Buckton is featured in the Alistair Sawday guide to Special Places to Stay, and she is a multiple winner of the Flavours of Herefordshire award for Best Breakfast.
Edward Tobin is a former senior executive of publishers HarperCollins where he promoted many famous authors including Charlton Heston and Joe O'Connor.
