Local Food initiatives around Bristol . . . and the Black Isle

18 September 2019

An article in the Guardian Weekly of 30 August has drawn our attention to the wealth of local Food & Growing activity around Bristol, which gained the European Green Capital award in 2015 and has Caroline Lucas as one of its MPs.  The Bristol Food Producers organisation lists among its members twenty-five local producers within 10 miles of Bristol, another eight inside a 50 mile radius, eleven 'starter producers' and six distributors/retailers.

Of course the Black Isle and immediate hinterland has its own local food producers.  Listen to two of them talking about their businesses and the advantages of local growing, taken from the Our Local Larder website   www.blackislelarder.org.
