There was a feast of food at the Incredible Edible Harvest Festival in Todmorden.

Hundreds of hungry visitors were in attendance on Todmorden Green, including TV chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, who was filming for his River Cottage series.

He said: “I love coming to Todmorden and it’s great to have the local community here tucking into some beautiful food.

“It’s got the support of pretty much the whole of Todmorden by the looks of it.

“The best food comes right from the heart of the community and Todmorden understands that better than anywhere else in the country.”

There were stalls from Friends of the Earth, the Scouts and Todmorden in Bloom plus live music, woodcarving and apple pressing.

Charlotte Buisseret flew over from Belgium for the event to make waffles.

She said: “It’s great - a wonderful event. We’re delighted to be a part of it.”

Incredible Farm apprentice Jed Forward was also offering his range of preserves at the event after receiving help by the Walsden-based project.

He said: “It’s the first batch that’s been available to the public and the response has been really good so far.”
