An Art Series bringing us Closer to the Faces of our Food
We are thrilled to announce the official launch of 'Taste of the Boyne Valley,' an extraordinary series with a profound purpose - to bridge the gap between people and their food source through the power of a captivating visual medium - art.
The Boyne Valley, renowned for its lush landscapes and fertile soils, has a rich agricultural heritage that often goes unnoticed in today's fast-paced world. 'Taste of the Boyne Valley' seeks to change that by celebrating the region's culinary abundance and the dedicated individuals who nurture the land.
Our first print features Maria Flynn, of Ballymakenny Spud Shack. Ballymakenny Farm is run by husband-and-wife David and Maria. Known around Ireland for their produce, used by top chefs and restaurants - But Maria wanted something for everyone, and so began the 'Spud Shack', a drive through farm shop.
Through this series, we aim to highlight the faces and stories behind our food, fostering a deeper appreciation for the tireless efforts of local farmers and the significance of sustainable food systems.
The 'Taste of the Boyne Valley' prints, created by local artist Aoife Hodgins, will be available for purchase on our website (www.mydanu.com) and limited retail locations for 35 euros each. As part of our commitment to giving back, 5 euros from every print sold will be donated to a charity of Maria’s choice.
We invite you to please join us in spreading the message of 'Taste of the Boyne Valley.' This art project not only beautifies living spaces but also enriches hearts and minds, encouraging a mindful connection with the origins of our meals.
