The launch of Farm Stay UK’s Shop and Eat Local

Farm Stay UK is delighted to announce that it is working with Big Barn to encourage visitors to the Heart of England to support local producers, farm shops and delis by shopping and eating local!

“Supporting the local community is of great importance and through our work with BigBarn we are hoping to make it incredibly easy for visitors to the area to do just that!” commented Andy Woodward, Chief Executive of Farm Stay UK. “There is nothing quite like the taste of locally produced cheeses and chutney, deliciously fresh vegetables and meat from the farm and freshly baked breads. The food we eat on holiday plays a big part in the memories which we take away from an area, which is why at Farm Stay we think that encouraging visitors to buy and eat locally is so important,” finished Andy.

BigBarn and Farm Stay UK have launched the Shop and Eat Local scheme to make it easier for visitors to the Heart of England to fill the fridges of their self-catering cottages with locally produced food. Farm Stay UK members will be joining local producers and retailers from the Heart of England at the event to learn about the scheme, collect Shop and Eat Local leaflets and bags to hand out to their guests and customers and enjoy some light refreshments – locally sourced of course!
