We’ve always had certain things we like done a certain way. And most of these have to do with making fresh food from the finest ingredients. Like our flour. We get it straight from the mill for our pies and pastries. And our meats, freshly supplied by reputable farmers with a keen sense of quality. Even our seasonal fruit and veg comes straight from local farms, and then goes right into our customers’ baskets and ready meals.

Because over the last hundred years or so, we’ve learned that great food starts long before anyone cooks it. So that’s where we begin. Dan, Nick and Dave regularly take trips to the farms, vegetable plots and flour mills where our produce comes from. This gives them a chance to check things are operating properly, see how they’re putting quality first, and have a chat with folks who share our passion for great food.

In fact, some of our closest relationships are with some of our closest farms. And along with our wider community of respected local and national suppliers, we know exactly where to go for good local honey, fresh golden eggs, and family-sized turkeys just in time for Christmas.

Once our hand-selected produce arrives in our shop, we can prepare it for our customers. This means expert knife skills in our butchery, some in-house home cooking for our pastries, pies and ready meals, and crafting a beautiful selection of fresh goods for our on-site and online shop.

By letting our love of good food guide the way we do things, we can tell each customer a bit of a story about every leg of lamb, pound of carrots and hot pie they take home. So they know that if it comes from our shop, it comes from a good place.
