Event: East Midlands Chilli Festival

East Midlands Chilli Festival

The home of ChilliBobs Ltd became the centre of attention as ChilliBobs East Midlands ChilliFest - the Chilli, Beer and Artisan Festival – took over Orchard Farm this summer.

With over 70 stalls and vendors convening in the farm field in Newark, the festival welcomed families and food lovers from around the Midlands. Chilli Artisans and street food vendors offered jams, cheeses, chocolates and condiments infused with fiesty chilli flavours, with a range of local real ales to wash it down. Local bands and theatre workshops wowed and entertained the crowds as the weather stayed in keeping with the event – hot!

With the CANNA trailer set up next to Highlight Horticulture, both CANNA and Highlight discussed the benefits of using CANNA products, imparting knowledge to visitors and looking at how to get the best results through various cultivation methods. The results were visible in ChilliBobs own greenhouse which was open to visitors, this showcased a vareity of systems and the majority of crops grown on CANNA.
