Berwick-based food producer, Peelham Farm, is planning to introduce more people to the taste of its gluten-free range.

Peelham Farm will be joining the region’s foodies in exhibiting at the upcoming Great North Gluten-Free Fair for the first time on April 26.

The Fair makes its return to The CastleGate in Newcastle city centre after the success of the inaugural event in 2013.

Organised by TASTECLUB, which supports the people who make, serve and sell Great North food and drink, the event proves that gluten-free needn’t mean taste-free, with a variety of delicious gluten-free food and drink on offer from some of the best local and national producers.

Gluten is a natural compound found in foods like wheat, barley and rye. A typical gluten-free diet might also exclude oats.

Peelham Farm offers a variety of gluten-free organic produce including sausages, burgers, haggis, dry-cured meats and charcuterie.

The farm’s co-owner, 
Denise Walton, said: “We are looking forward to introducing people to a wide range of produce including Organic Lamb with Rosemary sausages, Organic Lamb Kofta Haggis Burgers and Organic Veal, Chilli and Lime Burgers among several others.”

The Great North Gluten-Free Fair will run from 10am to 4pm.

Advance tickets are available online at www.tasteclubhq.com/gluten-free-fair and cost £2.50 per person, £5 for a family of two adults and two children, or £8 for a group of four adults.

Entry will cost £3 per person on the door or £2 after 1.30pm.

All attendees will receive a free Gluten-Free Guide, which will contain information about buying and eating gluten-free food and drink in the region.

More details and updates can be found at facebook.com/GreatNorthGlutenFreeFair.

Peelham Farm is also offering aspiring butchers the chance to break down a whole lamb and pig on a special Craft Butchery Course.

Run throughout the year, attendance is limited to six at a time.

The course costs £120. For more information, visit http://www.peelham.co.uk/traditional-craft-butchery-course
