This is one for your foodie calendar; The Forking Local Food Festival on Vire Island in Totnes on the 23rd September from 11am. We’ll be there selling hot tagines, cold savoury snacks and sweet treats. Our suppliers will be Bee Organics, Laydilay organic eggs, Sladesdown Farm, Hodmedod pulses, Huxhams Cross and School Farm CSA. The idea of the event is that all stalls are selling products that have 75% of their ingredients sourced from within 10 miles of Totnes. We will use some British but not local flour and cous cous, sugar, chocolate and some larder items such as spices that are obviously not local, but otherwise the veg, dairy and meat will have come from mostly small suppliers and growers in the South Hams area. This is actually the general ethos of our business, so we haven’t had to make much change to our normal sourcing policy, but it’s nice to be reminded of what is local and to sing the praises of our wonderful local produce.
See you there? For bread from the Almond Thief, ice cream from Dartington Dairy, cakes, hot and cold food from us and so much more! We can’t wait!
