This week, we turn our focus onto the local suppliers that we love! At PB, we’re continually trying to source our food locally, Pierre and the team strongly believe in the concept of ‘Food Miles’, that is, the distance food travels to get to the plate. Sopley Farm, located less than 10 miles from Pebble Beach, on the edge of the New Forest, Sopley Farm has been growing over twenty varieties of soft fruit and vegetables for over thirty years and supplying Pebble Beach for over five. We are delighted to support local producers, whilst doing our bit for the environment.
It’s a great place where you can pick your own seasonal produce including: strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, tayberries, gooseberries, blackcurrants, redcurrants, plums, runner beans, broad beans and pumpkins and for the less energetic a simple stroll into the farm shop delivers a cornucopia of asparagus, rhubarb, courgette, marrow, potatoes, garlic, sweetcorn and varieties of squash.
At Sopley, ‘fresh’ isn’t a word on a package in a super market, It’s not unusual for customers, chefs and retailers alike, to have to wait a few minutes while their produce comes in from the field!
