LOCAL, LOVE just LOVE, LOCAL
We are a local business, and we like to support other local business… which means our customers are supporting TWO (sometime THREE… eg Turner Hardy Tomato Juice who use IOW tomatoes to make their juice!) local businesses, and reducing their carbon footprint….AND getting some delicious, exquisite fare at the same time.
It’s a no brainer 😉
Here’s a list of our current local suppliers…but it keeps on growing!
Exton Park Wines – Within a mile of our shop the grapes are grown on rolling chalk slopes similar to those found in Champagne, so as you can imagine the Award Winning Sparkling Wine is sublime!
Mud Pies – normally only found at Farmers Markets these Award winning pies and squiches (square quiche… genius!) are second to none – people travel from miles to get their hands on these
Woodland Jersey Beef – Locally-reared, grass-fed Jersey beef has been going down a storm with our customers. Many customers have described this as the ‘best beef they have ever tasted’ (no word of a lie, promise!)
