Because of the coronavirus pandemic, we had to simplify our range, to allow our staff to safely socially distance at work and enable us to deliver essential food to more families. For those of you missing some of the staples that we used to offer, we have put together this list of suppliers whom you can continue to support and enjoy directly through their own websites (and other online shops in a couple of cases).
Everyone below is a small-scale, organic supplier we know, trust, and are happy to recommend. To order, simply follow the links below.
