Local Producers

We aim to stock as much local produce as possible and support many growers and producers from the local area who supply us with a fantastic range of top quality food from salad and strawberries to bread and honey.

Currently approximately 20% of our range is supplied direct from local people.

A bit about Andy’s Bread…
Andy bakes a range of yeasted and sourdough breads using organic ingredients. The white flour is from Doves farm whilst the rest is milled at Felin Ganol, a watermill less than 40 miles away. The wholemeal flour is both grown and milled in Ceredigion – a very local product!
Favourite Bread… Hard to choose so I’ll have to choose 2. Some Perl Las (welsh blue cheese) on a finely sliced piece of Kiev caraway sourdough or a still warm ciabatta packed with cheddar, salad and chutney. Delicious!
