Local Foodies



We try to source locally whenever it is possible. We offer local options in all staples (bread, milk and eggs are exclusively local, as well as butter, cheese, yoghurt etc.). Our buying choices are guided by quality and locality despite the cheaper alternatives offered by national operators. We have 25 producers within 10 miles, 41 producers within 30 miles and 63 producers within 50 miles.

Here we would like to praise some of our local producers who supply us with some truly delicious wares.


Angel Cottage Farm,
Fifehead Neville

Producers of organic, ethically raised tasty chickens. Only a small number of Organic Free Range Chickens are available each month. They are a French breed called SASSO Farm Ranger and are one of the most suitable for free-range, organic table chicken production. They like to roam far from their coup – hence their name. The meat is firm textured and traditionally flavoured.
