We can't wait to share with you the details of our amazing local suppliers that provide us with all of our raw ingredients for the café, along with some pre-made goodies too! From eggs, to bread, milk, meat and veggies; we get as much of our produce as possible from within a 10 mile radius of the café... this means not only does our food have as small of a carbon footprint as possible, but we also get to support other local, small businesses too.
Having this community of independent producers and suppliers right on our doorstep is so wonderful and we just want to shout about these wonderful people!
Meet the newest member of The Canteen suppliers family, SmokeDough! We get all the bread for our recipes from the amazing SmokeDough in Stroud. They create artisan loaves with interesting twists, such as their charcoal and turmeric bread! We also sell their loaves to take away.
For the last 10 years we've been getting our cheese from Whey More, who are just up the road from us! They create beautifully ages cheeses and we wouldn't be without them!
Woodchester Meat Company
Our meat is all local and organic, including ham, bacon and sausages and we get it all from the Woodchester Organic Meat Company, less than 2 miles door to door. Pretty much as local as it gets!
We've been buying our eggs from Gail's hens for over 10 years. Just down the road in Sherston, these eggs have less than ten miles to travel to us at the café.
We will keep adding to this blog and our new Suppliers web page as we go; if you're a food producer local to Nailsworth or Stroud and would like to work with us please do get in touch or pop into the café and speak to Caroline.
