Why buy locally on Exmoor?

  1. Support Rural Communities – Spending locally helps keep rural communities thriving and full of life. For every £1 spent, it’s estimated over 60p is returned to the local area.
  2. Better for Nature – Many of our producers are small scale farmers championing low-impact approaches that work with, not against, nature. You’ll find grass-fed beef and lamb, organic fruit and vegetables, handmade jams and chutneys and deliciously sweet local honey among the among the many delicacies available to try.
  3. Less Food-Miles – The fewer miles our food travels to get to our plate, the smaller the carbon footprint.  That means less packaging too, as it’s not needed to protect and keep food fresh.
  4. Good for your Health – Local food is more likely to be seasonal, making it fresher, tastier and more nutritious.
  5. It’s Unique and Distinctive – Experience a local delicacy within the beautiful surroundings that inspired it.
