WHY EAT BRITISH FARM PRODUCE?
By buying and eating British you support your local farmer, the UK economy and the farming industry. For the last forty years British farming has led the world in environmentally and ethically sustainable growing and farming practices and food quality assurance standards. The British countryside has been shaped for thousands of years by agriculture and horticulture and supports many rural jobs across the country, so farming therefore remains a vital part of the economy and society as a whole.
“There is nothing like using the best produce available as it comes into season. In the UK that anticipation of the “next” seasonal ingredient to land is something very, very special. I am lucky here at Stoke by Nayland in that our sister company, Boxford Farms, grows all our asparagus for us as well as many types of apples, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, cherries and rhubarb – you can’t get much fresher than that!”
– Alan Paton, Executive Head Chef at Stoke by Nayland Hotel, Golf & Spa.
