COMMON LOAF BAKERY
'Common Loaf' bread is not ordinary bread like that made in big factories and sold through chains of big stores. It's made according to traditional recipes without compromise.
OUT OVER CATERING
We bring both sweet and savoury products to the market – cheesy sausage rolls, sausage rolls, scotch eggs, our sausage meat slices, quiche, pies and pasties; scones (plain, cheese and fruit) and all kinds of cakes from tea-bread to traditional coffee cakes, also cookie, tiffin, and flapjacks.
COCOA'S HANDMADE CHOCOLATE
Here at Cocoa's we use all the best ingredients possible, to make our produce as tasty as it can be! Everything is made by hand so every item is as unique as the last.
DAIRY & EGGS
BATCH FARM CHEESEMAKERS
All of our farmhouse cheddar cheese is made using the milk from our own dairy herd, meaning the milk for our cheese travels minutes rather than days or hours before being turned into our award winning final products.
My free-range flock is made up from large fowl Barnevelders, Cream Legbars, Leghorns, Salmon Faverolles and bantam Marans, Araucanas, Anconas and Pekins. I also have some hybrid Goldlines and Black Rocks. These produce a mixture of different coloured eggs - brown, tinted, white and green/blue. I have a small number of duck eggs from Khaki Cambells and am currently expanding my numbers of quail.
FISH & SEAFOOD
Exmoor Fisheries sustainably breeds and farms the highest quality Rainbow Trout for restocking. Located in the Haddon Hills of Exmoor, Somerset. The farm thrives off both virgin spring water as well the River Haddeo which filters down from the surrounding moorland.
FRUIT & VEGETABLES
BELSEYS CHEDDAR STRAWBERRIES
Besley’s Strawberries can be found in the traditional area around Cheddar in Somerset, where early varieties could be grown. Seven acres are devoted to Besley’s strawberries, some under poly-tunnels. Pests are kept under control using biological pest controls and free-range chickens – that eat the vine weevils, no chemical pesticides are used. Cliff Besley grows seven varieties that extend the season from early May to late September.
100% homegrown, seasonal veg from our Organic farm in Over Stowey. We are certified organic by the Soil Association, the UK's leading certifier and sister of the well known organic farming charity.
STEFANO'S HOMEMADE FOOD
Stefano creates seasonal Italian and European dishes using fresh locally grown and reared ingredients from the South West, and he also sources and imports quality Italian products.
MEAT & POULTRY
A traditional breed, our beef is produced exclusively from grass-fed, registered pedigree stock and is a trademarked product. All dry-aged (hung) for a minimum of 21 days, we sell a variety of cuts (steaks, joints, mince etc) subject to availability. All our meat is vacuum packed and fresh where possible but, as a small producer we do not have the numbers of stock to guarantee this. If at all possible we recommend advance ordering and we will do our best to provide the required size and cut: we sell out fast!
PORK HEAVEN FROM DEVON
We pride ourselves on the quality of our pork, and our numerous awards reflect our success. We are five times sausage champion with Taste of the West, and won the overall Champion Product in 2014 with our "Butcher's Classic Pork Sausage". During the last five years we have scooped over forty awards for our pork, over thirty of these are Gold and "Champion" awards, an achievement of which we are really proud.
We produce farmed red deer venison, fed on an all-grass diet at our family farm near Taunton. Our venison is high in iron, protein and omega 3 oils and low in fat and cholesterol. It is tender and flavoursome, not tough and gamey like some wild venison can be. We do not use any GM or antibiotics.
PLANTS & FLOWERS
EXMOOR PLANT CENTRE
From our nursery at Lynton the the Exmoor Coast, we offer year-round an unusual range of shrubs, trees, rockery plants, heathers, fruit trees, roses, herbs and bedding plants for the discerning plant collector or gardener alike.
