Dairy House

Open Jar Collective present ‘Dairy House’ as part of the 2013 festival

To share the results of our research in Dumfries and Galloway over the summer Open Jar Collective have built a pop-up milk bar, which we will bring to the festival on Sunday 1st September. The bar will tour Gatehouse of Fleet from 12 – 3pm and be part of the EAFS Gathering 3: The Land and Us at Cairnsmore of Fleet SNH Reserve in the evening.

The milk bar will create a space for rumination and conversation that draws from our experience of visiting the farms and speaking to farmers, exploring issues and experiences of dairy farmers and their cows. Visitors to the bar will be invited to drink a glass of milk with us and hear stories that we have gathered along the way and add their own to our collection.

Open Jar Collective often consider the interconnections between the food we eat and how it’s produced and distributed. We interviewed people and documented places connected with dairy farming in Dumfries and Galloway, gathering an understanding of relationships, passions and perspectives on food. This project brings some of the elements of the dairy farm; sounds, images, people’s personal memories and daily experiences out to the community.
