    Why Local

    Here are five reasons to buy local produce.

    1 - Local Distinctiveness - The Tamar Valley has a rich tradition of food and flower production for over 200 years as a result of its favourable climate and length of season, with many unique local varieties. Market gardening and orchards also played a key part in what makes the Tamar Valley such a distinctive landscape. Buying local produce can help to support this local distinctiveness, and offers a much wider choice!
