Food obtained locally has fewer food miles, is fresher, is generally produced on a smaller less intensive scale, you know more about where it has come from and it provides local employment.
We are celebrating the great local produce that we have available in this area. Many of us are turning to our local producers more right now and interest and need for local fresh produce has increased.
We have been chatting to some of these wonderful people and are really impressed by what they do and recognise that they are facing challenges, like many of us during this difficult time. Let’s support each other and keep going!
Here are some of them nearby to Swanage which are supplying produce. We are compiling a list for this website and have been profiling the wonderful people to find out more. If we have missed anyone please get in touch.
