Buy local policy – Support, use and promote local produce, food, drink & crafts
It is the policy at Huxtable Farm to buy from local sources wherever possible. This applies not only to food and drink, but building materials, printing, stationary and other general supplies. By using local companies and producers we are supporting the local market which will in turn benefit our business by creating a sustainable local economy. Plus it reduces the miles that these goods will have traveled to reach us, therefore reducing the associated carbon emissions. Here at Huxtable Farm we buy local produce, use our own lamb and eggs, grow our own fruit, vegetables & herbs, make homemade bread and preserves and use food for free from the land e.g. elderflowers and mushrooms.
