There is much in the news at the moment about the advantages to our economy when buying local. Not only to our hip pockets but also the planet. Supermarket shopping clocks up a lot of food miles these days and its a good thing that many of the independent family run businesses like Groves sell stock that is locally made.
Most of our plants are grown here at our nurseries, making the most of the mild and wet Dorset climate. Not only are our plants grown locally but also many of our other products in store are locally sourced. Just this week we added Dorset Spice Shed to the mix of local products we sell. Their easy spice mixes will elevate any BBQ or plant-based meal. Our cafe stocks many locally sourced products from drinks to tea and biscuits.
Come along to Ivy House Kitchen this weekend for a piece of Apple Cake to celebrate. Happy Dorset Day!
