Meeting our producers

Peter Sargent

A big thank you to grower Peter Sargent (pictured), beekeeper Yvonne Kilvington and Rackel Liles of Longley Farm for hosting our first meet the producer event last Thursday at the Green Valley Grocer.

Lots of fun was had by all, as adults and children alike enjoyed asking questions and tasting the producers' delicious, locally made food.

This week we have two more meet the producer events at the Green Valley Grocer:

Wednesday September 5, 2-5pm, with Mike Shaw, producer of Scape Honey and Carl Warburton, who makes Pextenement Cheese in Todmorden


Thursday September 6, 2-7pm, with Michael Blake, who grows on a Slaithwaite allotment, Matt Betts of the Handmade Bakery, Slaithwaite, and Rob North of Pure North Cider Press, Holmfirth

Please do come along, have a taste and find out more about the great local products available in the shop.


English produce

We have finally started to get some English produce in, some from the wholesale market and quite a bit from David Westwood and Greenfield farm both within our 30 mile local zone. It's been very late coming through this year due to the weather, but hopefully now it will just keep coming.
