Turriff Show’s wholesome EQ Food and Drink pavilion, sponsored by EQ Chartered Accountants, will be the heart to some of the finest Scottish local food and drink producers in the region. This year the pavilion has been extended to welcome over 40 local exhibitors showcasing local meats, chutneys, fruit and veg, home bakes, ice-cream, sweets, honey, jams, spirits, cider, and cocktails.
Special favourites such as Wark Farm pies, bacon from Ingrams, granola from Bakery Lane to yoghurt from Rora dairy and Ogilvy spirits, will be there to savour their delectable local produce.
Also, the pavilion welcomes once again, the popular Portsoy Ice Cream; the shop’s owner, Alex Murray, says:
“We will be at Turriff Show both days in the EQ Food and Drink Marquee. I am looking forward to this year after such fun in 2022. It is always so wonderful to meet faces from all walks of life who come together to show an interest in today’s agriculture,” says Alex.
Portsoy Ice-Cream is a family run business, well known for its wide variety of ice creams, sauces and other sweet treats. With over 100 ice cream flavours, Alex strives to source many of his ingredients from local food and drink suppliers, with fruit from Barra berries and whisky from Glenglassaugh distillery.
There will be prizes on offer for showgoers in the EQ Food and Drink Pavilion, including a draw for a super Broil King BBQ, available to everyone making a purchase from a food and drink stall in the EQ Food and Drink pavilion.
