This weekend we have the Waterford Harvest Festival starting, highlighting the great strengths in food products in this region.
Last Saturday, we also had the annual Iverk Show in Piltown, where up to 20,000 attend the one day event annually.
Again this is a great show case for food producers.
We managed to have a good conversation with Minister for Agriculture, Simon Coveney, who stated how there was a great interest again among young people to go into farming.
