This section provides links to the features I’ve written on food producers, local and faraway, who are working to bring something special to our tables. I’ve written about them because they are exceptional in some way: either through the quality or uniqueness of their product, their ethical standards, and/or methods of production, and their own stories.
Links to the producers’ own websites are also included below, where they have them.
The Cherry Orchard, Great Abington, Cambridgeshire: for PYO cherries and other ready-picked fruit and veg.
Davies Fish Shop, Garden Street, Cromer, Cambridgeshire: for Cromer crab and other shellfish. Link to producer’s website.
Hill Farm PYO, Paddy Ivens, Chesterton, Peterborough, Cambridgeshire: for PYO strawberries, raspberries and other summer fruits. Link to producer’s website.
Clare Murray and Mathew Warwick, South Runcton, Kings Lynn: walnut orchards (Clare’s contact details are on her jewellery website.)
Rosegate Farm Butchery, Swavesey, Cambridge: for hand-reared local lamb, pork and beef.
Waterland Organics, Lode, Cambrideshire: for a diverse range of vegetable and fruit crops, including uncommon varieties.
