I’ve completed three weeks of the Local Food Pledge and it has been exciting to see how easy it is to buy more than half of my food from independent local businesses! I haven’t got a car so I tend to shop ‘little and often’, and I’m a big fan of farms that deliver to your door!
I order from Growing With Nature, based in Pilling, who have recently introduced a new online ordering system so you can select what you want your fruit & veg box to contain! (s.coop/1wmac)
I get my milk and orange juice delivered in reusable glass bottles by R&J Dairy Ltd – a small local family-run business based in Heysham. They deliver all kinds of dairy and non-dairy products (including organic milk, goats’ milk, soya milk, yogurt, cheese, various drinks, potatoes, meat, etc.)
If you haven’t taken the local food pledge plunge yet, why not give it a go?
