The Wasabi Company

The Wasabi Company has created a feature display of what a Wasabi Farm looks and sounds like over in the Horticultural Marquee.  There are set times advertised at the display when David, Sofia and Toby will be there to answer your questions.

The Watercress Company are delighted to be providing delicious fresh watercress for the event at both the Brace of Butchers in the countryside arena and the members and VP Dining area.

The Watercress Company has just announced this week it will be working with the DCS 1840 Education Trust to offer live streaming broadcasts to Dorchester and surrounding schools on farming and wildlife operations at their farms so the students can engage with rural activities and ask questions.  Broadcasts will include bee farming, reptiles and wild salmon tagging.  This is also supported by trips for children to visit farms through Dorset and get a hands on experience.  The first broadcast will be from a bee hive at one of their farms near Warmwell in September.

Dorset farming stands out across the country for its Agri-Tec investment and technology.  The use of GPS driven tractors and state of the art applicators is essential for UK farming success.  The stands here today are showcasing this technology which will support the future of British farming.

The research into food science is promising to be an important part of our Agri based global exports and work being conducted by The Watercress Company is being internationally recognised.  In the last 10 years they have completed many studied with Universities throughout Great Britain into watercress and its effect on many diseases.  Visit their website at thewatercresscompany.com to find out more.

Dorset is known for growing watercress and we are delighted to be supported by The Watercress Company this year.  It’s a fantastic product crammed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidant, another great Dorset success…
