The Frome Valley Food Fest will run along side the Knob Throwing. There will be a the opportunity to sample, taste and purchase a fine range of foods including breads, cheeses, ciders, meats game & poultry, pies, preserves, and puddings in addition to chocolate, coffee and wine supplied by well respected local businesses. 

Last year, the event attracted around 5000 visitors with 50 local food producers taking stands. The response from these suppliers, participants in the Knob throwing, and visitors has been overwhelming and we are confident that even more people will take the opportunity to sample and taste some of the finest foods produced in the UK all available locally.

Cattistock lies midway between Dorchester and Yeovil and the event will be held in the centre of this picturesque village. (Link to map) The aim is to raise much needed funds for 4 village organisations (the Cricket Club, the Football Club, the Playing Fields and the Savill Hall) who are coming together to organise the event.
