FAIRTRADE at Moy River

From Ghana to Cloonacool – Adam Pampuri visits Tubbercurry to promote FAIRTRADE products.

Adam is a cashew nut farmer from Ghana in West Africa. He is not just a farmer however but also a world ambassador for the FAIRTRADE organisation. He toured Ireland recently thanking retailers and their customers alike for their respective promotion and use of FAIRTRADE products. Many items such as tea, coffee and bananas are commonly found in most major retailers. Our local town, Tubbercurry, is a FAIRTRADE town.

Us and Adam

Adam is a talented speaker and is certainly the man for the job when it come to telling the FAIRTRADE story. Moy River B&B was well impressed and so from now on we will be using only FAIRTRADE tea and coffer for our guests. We will also be using any other items the we regularly consume and that are available under the FAIRTRADE label.

 

Snowdrops and Daffodils

Spring has arrived in Cloonacool and at Moy River B&B.

Last week was a real celebration for a few reasons. The snowdrops peeped over ground and are always a welcome display being the first flowers of the year. Our first batch of chickens hatched and on that same night, we had our first full house!

We moved, guests and all, to Moy River Cottage for the supper where we were joined by a few local musicians. The fire in the grate did manage to keep the night-time chill away for a few hours.

Our guests were from places as far-flung as Canada, Portugal and New Zealand!
