We care about where our food comes from and how it’s grown because our meals are our most vital connection to the natural world. So we source our produce from ethical growers with healthy soils. Food is something everyone, everywhere, needs everyday. So we reckon it matters.
Most of our fruit and veg are grown by Phil. Phil runs Moyns Park Organics on a big country estate on the Essex/Suffolk border. If you like our food, Phil deserves a good chunk of the credit, because as we all know, good food starts with good produce and good people. Phil also takes our food waste away for his compost heap. Cradle to Cradle. You can visit the site here.
Priors Flour at Fosters Mill
Once a month or so we pop up to see Jonathan Cook who mills our organic British white flour in his windmill in Swaffham Prior. Although we mill most of our grain ourselves, we do often blend some of Jon’s with it. He’s a professional after all. You can visit the site here.
Our organic wheat, spelt and rye for milling are currently grown by the Roberts family in harpenden on their family run farm. But we’ve got some exciting things in the pipeline… we’ve reserved a crop of “stock free” organic grain for later this year, and hopefully some heritage grains grown just up the road in Shimpling.
We wanted to make the best organic espresso we could. That’s why we chose Edward and James at Beanberry. Their knowledge and experience is off the charts, and after hours of hands on training from them, we think it comes through in the flavour of their java script espresso blend.

Our great British tea is the first and only home grown British tea! Grown on the Tregothnan estates in Cornwall, its not certified organic but Tregothnan work hard to grow without fertilisers and pesticides. You can visit the site here.
Every few weeks we head to the coast to pick up the best this country has to offer as far as salt goes. We use hand-harvested maldon sea salt in everything we make, including our bread. When you’re got the best on your doorstep, why wouldn’t you? You can visit the site here.
Our dry goods suppliers are based in East Sussex and are one of the longest running and leading wholesalers in organic foods. They’re a fantastic company, supporting great projects. They’re also a workers co operative, which is an added bonus. You can visit the site here.
At the end of each week we give whatever breads and whatnot that we have left to Community Kitchen, organised by Transition Sudbury. The weekly meal run by volunteers is set up to provide healthy food and company to those in need, alongside information on available help and support. It’s held every Monday from 12 – 2pm at St. Gregs Hall on Princes Street.
