This event has now sold out. If interested in farm adventures we re planning later this year, please email us and we will keep you up to date.
Join us on a fun visit to Marcross Farm, a fourth generation dairy farm on the picturesque coast of the Vale of Glamorgan. Owned by the Evans family, the farm boasts an impressive Holstein Friesian dairy herd.
We will meet brother and sister Hopkin and Louise Evans and enjoy a tour of a working farm with magnificent views of the coast line. On our tour of the farm, we’ll be learning about modern dairy farming, ethically reared rose veal and why rose veal should be on our plates
Following the tour, we’ll be off to the Welsh Sustainable Restaurant of the Year, The Gallery. Chef Patron Barnaby Hibbert will delight you with a cooking demonstration and serve you a delectable three course lunch featuring veal.
If you’re interested in coming along, our journey will begin at 10:00 a.m. at The Gallery, where we’ll start the day off with a cup of coffee or tea and a home made cake. Feeling refreshed, we’ll board the minibus and head to Marcross Farm.

What People Say About This Tour
I am such a fan and have been on two Adventures! The visit to the veal farm was memorable, well organised and sociable. Carol and Mark were ideal hosts. The meal at The Gallery was excellent. I'm looking forward to my next outing with relish!
Cy K. about Discover Ethical Rose veal Adventure
Just wanted to thank you and Mark for looking after us so well on Saturday, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and you really made my birthday special. The talk at the farm was pitched just right and we wish Hopkin and his family every success with their venture. The meal at the Gallery was superb and we’re confirmed rose veal converts. We’re spreading the Food Adventure word around and hope to see you again soon.
