Local, sustainably sourced food
We believe in buying the best but we also believe in buying locally; we buy very locally whereever and whenever possible. We use the village shop and Somerset local food for milk, butter, cream and fresh vegetables such as asparagus and mushrooms and beautiful fish such as smoked trout and haddock. Our neighbours in the village supply us with eggs and blueberries when in season. We grow all of our herbs in our lovely garden, as well as seasonal fruit such as rhubarb and gooseberries.
