Welsh farmers milk London opportunity.

WELSH dairy co-operative Calon Wen will be at the Real Food Festival in London for the first time. The co-op's farmers plus Moola the cow will be giving milking and butter-making demos at the four-day event at Earl's Court, from May 7. Richard Tomlinson, Calon Wen farmer, said: "Research shows that many children actually have no idea where milk comes from so events such as this are really important.

Calon Wen's award-winning Extra Mature and Creamy Cheddar will also be offered to show visitors.

Calon Wen is owned by over 20 farming families from across Wales.
