Tredarrup Farm Holiday Cottages
For a true taste of cornwall, shop local...
We always shop local and we hope you will too. It’s something we’re passionate about and it’s a win-win because doing so is an easy and enjoyable way that will benefit not only you but also the people of Cornwall and this beautiful but fragile planet we inhabit.
Buying local means you’ll sample some unique and delicious produce that you won’t find anywhere else, giving you a true taste of the spirit and culture of Cornwall. You’ll likely receive fantastic customer service from a friendly face too, often with a heartfelt ‘thank you my lovely’ thrown in for good measure.
It’s sustainable too: buying products grown and made locally reduces the amount of energy and resources needed for packaging and transportation. Plus it supports local businesses, keeping more money in Cornwall and providing job opportunities for local people.
And it’s easy! Cornwall is chock-full of artisan food and drink producers who take great pride in their produce and where it comes from. So you’re never far from a farm shop, deli, vineyard, bakery or butcher where you can pick up something truly scrumptious to make your holiday extra-Cornish, extra-delicious and extra special.
So, here’s our round-up of where to shop local.
