We work closely with our farmers & growers to source as much local produce as possible
From root vegetables like potatoes, parsnips and swede (or turnips as we call them down here), through alliums and brassicas (leeks and onions, cabbages and cauliflower), to salad leaves and specialist market garden crops including the wonderful soft fruit grown in the South West through the summer.
