Artisan farm-made food from Antrim

A stone’s throw from the Dark Hedges in County Antrim and close to the must-see Causeway Coast is where you’ll find the marvellous kitchen creations of the Farm Foodies Group, two enterprising women who are bringing the unforgettable flavour of Antrim’s pure and fertile landscape to local people.

The freshest food straight from the farm to your fork

Through the Farm Foodies Group’s products, workshops and food experiences, you’ll be immersed in fresh, natural Slow Food, all grown ethically on the women’s farms, processed thoughtfully and sustainably, and crafted by hand into irresistibly delicious products and snacks.

Between the scrumptious locally made goodies of Amanda Hanna’s Farm Shop and the mouth-watering NIFQA grass-fed lamb cuts and streetfood served up by Wendy Dempster, The Farm Foodies Group’s products and food experiences are beyond anything you’ve ever tasted or tried before.

Official Slow Food

Amanda Hanna and Wendy Dempster’s businesses are both members of Slow Food Causeway, which is coordinated by Taste Causeway and the Director of Slow Food Northern Ireland, Paula McIntyre. 

Taste Causeway is an accredited member of Slow Food UK, part of a global grassroots organisation that is committed to making good, clean and fair food.  

It means that whenever you buy their food, you know that everyone and everything involved in the process has been treated fairly, ethically and respectfully, without harm to the environment.

Crafted by hand from the purest land

Amanda and Wendy set up the Farm Foodies Group to celebrate the extraordinary food that is available locally – because they know it, grow it and produce it themselves.

Both women share a deep understanding of what makes food from this part of the world so very special, and why everyone should share in it.

Ballykenver Farmshop & Kitchen

Amanda heads up Ballykenver Farmshop & Kitchen, a business she started on the dairy farm she runs with her husband, that has grown from jam-making to include all sorts of lovingly crafted food creations and experiences.

Amanda also runs fun and informative workshops on making your own preserves, perfect for friend groups, hen parties, family celebrations and food lovers.

The Lamb Van

It’s Wendy’s mission to get more local people to eat lamb as part of a week-day meal. To inspire them, she has created a range of unbelievably tasty streetfood snacks made with her own grass-fed lamb… just one taste and you’ll be an immediate convert. In fact, Wendy’s lamb sausage rolls have a growing reputation as Antrim’s ultimate gourmet snack.

Look out for Wendy’s Lamb Van, a fabulous upcycled horsebox, popping up at an event near you!
