MEIRIONNYDD farmers will be opening their kitchens for breakfast week.

Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day and it is a great opportunity to talk and share your thoughts before starting the day.

In order to promote the health benefits and have a good catch up before the day starts, the Farmers’ Union of Wales (FUW) Meirionnydd team is once again hosting a series of farmhouse breakfasts.

Llanfrothen village cafe / shop will host a breakfast on Wednesday, January 22, with an event being held at Tymawr, Carrog on Thursday, January 23.

Further breakfasts will take place at Brynuchaf, Llanymawddwy (January 24) and Y Ganolfan at Pennal, near Machynlleth (January 25).

FUW Meirionnydd county chairman Sion Ifans said: “We all get really excited about our farmhouse breakfast every year.

"We can start the day together with family, friends and neighbours, in a positive way and at the same time raise money for our charitable cause, the DPJ Foundation.

“All of us are looking forward to yet another good turnout.

"It’s fair to say that a healthy start is not just good for a healthy heart but also for a healthy mind.”

The FUW’s farmhouse breakfast week (January 20-26) also provides an opportunity to promote the quality premium local produce that farmers grow in a sustainable way, and throughout breakfast week the FUW will shine a spotlight on the importance of our rural economy.

“I hope many of you will be able to join us for breakfast," added Mr Ifans.

"We want you to be a part of what we do, and share your thoughts and worries about the state of the industry, tell us your stories and help us to understand how we can help each other, and what better way to do that than around a table where we share great food and have a cup of tea.”
