WHY LOCAL?

‘Every time we buy food, our choices shape farms and nature and communities somewhere in the world.’ Professor Jules Pretty 2004

By buying local you:

  • Benefit from fresher and tastier food
  • Get real value for money
  • Lower food miles thereby helping the environment
  • Encourage sustainable food production
  • Support a way of life for the small producer by providing traders with a more profitable route to market
  • Help sustain the rural economy
  • Encourage a sense of community between buyer and seller, town and country
