We believe that when you support a local farmer, you are not only encouraging the growth of ethical farmers, which in turn will reduce the price of ethically grown /organic/free-range food, but you are also taking business away from corporate giants who really do not care about you or your family’s health. We are therefore, going to share as much information as we possibly can regarding what is happening in the food industry, we feel that everyone has the right to know what they are eating and choose whether they are happy to continue supporting all of the sometimes outrageous acts of the food providers.
We want to make your transition into eating local, ethical food as easy as possible, and we will guide you in taking first steps towards a happier, healthier life.
The bottom line is that we want you to know where your food comes from, and we strive tiresomely to source the very best products, and to build strong, open, relationships with the incredibly important people who are looking after you from the inside out, our local farmers, producers & suppliers.
