We are passionate about Herefordshire and local business so we sourced all the ingredients locally, and from as many inspirational local suppliers as possible from Herefordshire and the surrounding counties.
A locally sourced picnic..
All local suppliers have a unique start to their journey with a consistent undercurrent driving them, which is that they are focused on providing the best quality products, with a strong connection and love for their local community.
We found that the experience, interaction and quality that comes alongside dealing directly with local suppliers is unrivalled compared to sourcing your products from a supermarket.
Our fabulous locally sourced picnic was made even more special by being able to devour food and drink from local producers in Herefordshire.!
If you are craving for an afternoon away, then absolutely spend some time in the beautiful town of Hay on Wye where you will find nothing but picturesque rolling hills, a cosy village town, and friendly locals to welcome you.
Parking can sometimes be challenging but worth it for the experience.
Hay Deli is nestled in the centre where you can get your weekly favourites from locally sourced fresh vegetables to the butchers selection, to all the cheeses you can physically carry. Perfect place to hit for a hamper or big event.
When you open the door to Mousetrap Cheese, you enter a cheese heaven where everything you see is cheese and you are more than ok with that. Speak to the friendly staff who are happy to take you through the significant array of cheeses and help you choose some tasty combinations. Then just sit back and let the compliments roll in for your epic spread.
We picked a healthy portion of Dorstone, Cashel Blue, Kirkgams Lancashire, Brie de Meaux and a Manchego. Money well spent. Plus I didn’t know whether I told you but I have an addiction to cheese, it’s only mild though……
The team at Legges in Bromyard are proud to work closely with several carefully chosen local suppliers and producers, supporting the local community and preserving their very special talents.
The team strongly believe that eating seasonal, local produce nourishes our bodies. Following the year’s natural rhythms, enjoying seasonal food and drink at its best is not only best for us, but also for the future of our planet.
A lovely experience compared to your average supermarket, I picked up some fresh fruit and veg.
Also, I may have accidently picked up one of their brie, bacon and lettuce wraps for a classic 3.30pm snack and I can say that wrap was a cracking wrap. I am still thinking about it. Plus such great value and so many options to choose from!
At Peters Yard, everything begins with their 45-year-old sourdough starter, fermented for 16 hours, and crafted in small batches without shortcuts or artificial ingredients for award-winning flavour and crunch.
These crackers go with pretty much everything from chicken liver parfait, daring canapes, exotic salads, all kinds of saucy dips, cheeses and charcuterie.
We all need good bread in our lives, and we knew exactly where to go for award-winning bread across the Midlands, and that’s Peter Cooks Bread. A fresh loaf of sourdough – pop it in the basket! A mouth-watering square of focaccia – no brainer!
Peter and the team are proud to be able to collaborate with local brewers, cider makers and cheese makers to be able to use their great produce in their breads.
Peter feels that the friendships and connections he has built with the local food suppliers and producers plus the overall passion for Real Bread is stronger than ever in the campaign to reconnect the local community with the quality food that we need.
For any event, you need that one showstopper piece that will demand the attention of every eye. We made the right choice in ordering a cake from Sarah McNally Bespoke Cakes. It was so beautiful, we almost decided against eating it. But of course we did, and it was luscious.
Sarah bakes the most incredible buttercream creations that will leave you smiling on the inside for days.
The teams mission is to champion Herefordshire local producers, and provide 100% locally sourced products to the community, delivered straight to your door.
Their hampers are the perfect locally sourced picnic and are filled with Herefordshire produce. They also make great gifts for friends, family or colleagues. Or, because you absolutely deserve it, yourself! Treat yo’self!
