Ladies in Pigs will take part in the popular annual festival in the Villa Marina Gardens on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th September.
Founded by a small group of pig farmers’ wives 26 years ago, Ladies in Pigs now takes part in high profile events all over the British Isles, supports campaigns underlining the value of British meat, judges competitions, publishes a popular blog and recipes and has produced a cookbook packed with easy to create pork recipes.
Sue Woodall, co-founder and chairwoman, said:
‘We support the pig industry by working to increase awareness and consumption of Red Tractor quality assured pork, bacon, ham, gammon and pork products like pork pies and sausages.
‘We are pleased to be attending the Isle of Man Food & Drink Festival in September to demonstrate cooking with delicious Manx pork. We haven’t visited the Island before.'
Although pork isn’t the predominant product of local farms, the pig industry is worth around £1 million to the Island’s economy.
