Why do we support local?
Local food producers, local drinks producers and local craft persons. More than one reason:
Flavour, the flavour of all our local food is noticeably better, fresher and there is more of it! It’s just delicious.
Seasonality, it gives us not only variety but a better taste. We are able to use the freshest produce which gives us a better flavour! It promotes variety, which promotes creativity in the dishes we serve.
More nutrients! This is because its travels a smaller distance, for a shorter time, so it looses less nutrients!
Reinvesting in our local community helps it to flourish, grow, develop and the more we work together the more valuable the community can become.
We know the effort that has gone into producing something, the care, the attention and the love. It’s what we put into our own business, and its important to us. We are all real people, with a genuine passion for where we live and what we do. Using products that have been made, grown, produced with care does mean a better product.
It’s a cliché to say that when you buy from a small producer/supplier they do a happy dance, but it is true. When you support someone who is doing what they love it is good for so many people. Spread the joy – support local, thank you for supporting us and our producers, suppliers and makers.
