Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day and it is a great opportunity to talk and share your thoughts before starting the day.

So in order to promote the health benefits and have a good catch up before the day starts, FUW teams across the country are once again hosting a variety of farmhouse breakfasts (Monday, January 21 - Sunday, January 27).

The FUW is also once again taking the farmhouse breakfast to Cardiff on Tuesday, January 22.

FUW president Glyn Roberts said: “We all get really excited about our farmhouse breakfasts every year. We can start the day together with family, friends and neighbours, in a positive and healthy way and at the same time raise money for our charitable causes, Alzheimer's Society Cymru and the FCN.

“Over the last eight years for example our Caernarfonshire breakfasts alone have raised over £40,000 and last year we raised the equivalent of a year’s farm income (£13,000). It’s fair to say that a healthy start is not just good for a healthy heart but also for a healthy mind.”

The FUW’s Farmhouse Breakfast Week provides an opportunity to promote the quality premium local produce that farmers grow for us every day of the year, and throughout breakfast week the FUW will shine a spotlight on the importance of the rural economy.

“I hope many of you will be able to join us for breakfast. We want you to be a part of what we do, and share your thoughts and worries about the state of the industry, tell us your stories and help us to understand how we can help each other, and what better way to do that than round a table where we share great food and have a cup of tea,” added Glyn Roberts.
