The Tipperary Food Tour website was created to accompany our 64-page children’s book that tells the story of the Kelts and their fun and informative trip around Tipperary meeting some of Ireland’s finest Food Producers. The story of the Kelts and their food tour was created by The Tipperary Food Producers as a volunteer passion project. Each member was telling their own children this great story of food, food production and the importance of healthy eating so decided to share that story. This website will take you, the viewer on a virtual reality tour to 6 of the amazing producers the Kelts meet on their journey. To take the tour please view our YouTube link, and to find out more about Tipperary Food Producers you can purchase the Food Tour Book for €8.95.

MEET THE KELTS
Ben, Grace and Sean live in the countryside of County Tipperary. They love to explore the Irish fields and hedgerows.
Everyone calls them the KELTS (Kids who Explore the Lands of Tipperary). The KELTS love adventures. They love history and they love food.
One day Kate visits from the city. She thinks her visit to Tipperary will be soooo boring. But the KELTs know better. Tomorrow is the Long Table Dinner at the Rock of Cashel so the KELTS set off with Kate on a mission to collect lots of food for the Long Table Dinner.
Can the KELTS complete their mission?
Will Kate enjoy her tour of Tipperary?
