This recipe has been lovingly created for Kilduff Farm by Eilidh Eccles, Native & Wild.
Husband and wife team, Peter and Eilidh started Native & Wild in summer 2019 with their gorgeous little ones, Miss Matilda and wee Innes in tow. They have an obsession with food and farming and recognising a demand for locally produced, sustainable, seasonal food, they decided to embark on an adventure of marketing and selling their own produce. In 2020 they are branching out into event catering and will be bringing their delicious produce to The Patch in their converted horsebox.
