The Dumfries and Galloway Food Trail website is now live and in testing mode at www.dgfoodanddrink.com . This is a new food tourism resource for the region. There are opportunities for everyone to engage with this website and there are three main ways of doing so.
The criteria for a listing on this section of the website is:
- Food producers who hold (or are currently being assessed for) VisitScotland Quality Assurance Visitor Attraction or Tourist Shop awards.
- Farmers' Markets
- Food Festivals
If we are missing anyone who falls into these categories please let me know on firstname.lastname@example.org
Any business in Dumfries and Galloway hosting or organising a local food or drink related event or experience can list their event information here. Think of this as a year-round Flavour Fortnight.
This could include menu based events - theme nights or seasonal menus like Christmas events - or it could include one off or regular events. You can upload your event details yourself at any time, there is a link to do so at the bottom of the website. All submitted events will be checked before being published on the site.
This is for anyone to use, including members of the public - all submitted content will be moderated. This is a place to share your passion for D&G food and drink. Write a blog about why you use local produce on your menu, tell us about a day in the life of a food producer, share your top 5 picnic spots in D&G, wax lyrical about iconic D&G food and drink.
The idea behind this section is to build up a big resource of information and recommendations about our region's food and drink.
Think of this bit of the website as a D&G food and drink themed Buzzfeed. It's been designed to be social media friendly so you can share the living daylights out of articles that mention your business or products.
Please Remember: The site is currently in test mode and needs your feedback and input. Please upload any events you have planned and we would love it if you could submit blog articles. Any kinks or issues you encounter when using it, please let me know asap by emailing email@example.com.
