June's monthly 9 giveaways have dropped! And this month we're giving away a glamping and foraging night away in Cork, a bumper chocolate delivery, a picnic pack, a fermentation class, and restaurant vouchers to be used at your leisure. Being automatically entered into our monthly giveaways is just one of the perks of being signed up to ATF Insiders - our premium service that allows us to operate independently, with no #ad, #collab or #invite across any of our channels.
Everyone signed up to ATF Insiders by midnight on Saturday 17th June will be entered into the draw, and winners will be picked and notified on Sunday 18th June. Here's what you could win this month...
1) A gourmet glamping getaway with Two Green Shoots, Cork
Two Green Shoots have re-opened the gates to their Garden of Re-imagination, complete with gourmet glamping and foraging experiences, in Glengarriff, Co. Cork. We're giving one lucky ATF Insider (and an even luckier guest) the chance to head down to their private plant-filled paradise for a very unique overnight stay.
Their Botanical Bell Tent comes furnished with a king-size bed, indoor and outdoor seating, and an outside fire pit, and the winner will arrive to a welcome hamper of homemade and local treats. You'll also be served a 'Taste of Beara' breakfast the following morning, with everything either homegrown and/or handmade using produce freshly picked from their gardens and the surrounding landscape, and be taken on a multi-sensory botanical adventure with an immersive Foraging & Fireside Lunch Feast experience.

Athlone based Georgia Quealy and Daniel Linehan create incredible chocolates by hand in Bon Chocolatiers, that are some of the best we've ever tasted (the whole team is on agreement on this). They've given us FIVE of their gorgeous boxes to give away to one very lucky Insider, including their Signature Selection, Emma Maher Artist Collaboration, Summer Hues, Truly Dark, and for the week that's in it, their Dear Dad limited edition.

4) A Picnic Provisions Pack for four worth €100 from Pete’s
Pete's Provisions in Phibsborough is the friendly, neighbourhood wine shop we all dream of having around the corner.

We've got a picnic provisions pack for four worth €100 to give away this month, meaning someone's sunny weekend plans will be sorted.
5) A serving bowl from Araucaria Ceramics worth €140
We've long lusted after Araucaria Ceramics stunning plate-ware and pottery, after eating off them in restaurants like two-starred Michelin Dede in Cork, and Woodruff in Stepaside. Daniel Woodsmith was a chef for more than 10 years, before teaching himself how to make pottery from a studio in the Dublin mountains in 2017. A new release of his products comes out every few months and some are gone in seconds, but we've got a serving/fruit bowl from the latest release worth €140 to give away this month. It's thrown from Woodsmith's own blend of black stoneware and finished with a Nori glaze. Check out his shop here.
