Bradford on Avon Food Assembly

It was really exciting to be part of the new Bradford on Avon Food Assembly launch a couple of weeks ago: this weekly Food Assembly is every Thursday now, and such an easy way for people to click and collect local food! You simply go online to https://thefoodassembly.com/en/assemblies/9325 and then order what you fancy, from veg, salads, fruit, meat, bread, eggs, fudge, wine, microgreens and more, before 2am on Wednesdays; then come along to Mount Pleasant on a Thursday evening from 5.30-7pm to collect your order from the producers! Nicer, easier and generally cheape than ordering from the supermarkets, woohoo!

Hartley Christmas Market Saturday 28th November

More Awards

BGFA2013-60Look who’s been shortlisted for Best Local Grower in the 2014 Bath Good Food Awards! (At the bottom of the page.) Clue: it’s me. *Prepares speech; and disappointed face at the same time*. It’s great to see more producer catergories in these annual awards – a reminder that while the chefs and local shops do a sterling job, if it wasn’t for farmers, growers and other producers, they would have nothing to work with. Also great to see that Hartley Farm has been shortlisted for best local farm shop, and best local meat (which they won last year, see picture).
