The Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority has formed an official partnership with Farmers Only – The Barnyard Party adding the farmers-themed event to the official list of the Antigua and Barbuda Restaurant Week activities. Farmers Only, dubbed one of the largest local food-themed events in Antigua and Barbuda takes place on May 14, during Restaurant Week and is a display of farm-to-table experiences, local food, music and entertainment.
