A choice of delicious chocolate brownies, fruit loaf, sponge cakes and lots of other delicious cakes are usually on offer at very reasonable prices. 

Margaret’s scones come in on Tuesdays – plain and cheese.

what we sell - local produce

Lane Farm Country Foods at Brundish  supply us with smoked and unsmoked bacon, sliced ham and also their prize-winning salami.  "Lane Farm is a family run farm in its third decade of business. We produce a range of pork products from succulent ham, sausages to salami and bacon to burgers using only the finest and freshest meat reared on the farm itself. Our bacon is dry-cured by hand and is a genuine labour of love.The welfare of our pigs is always at the forefront of our minds and we’re proud to be members of the RSPCA Freedom Food Scheme.”

Country Pies, at Capel St Mary,  supply us twice a week with small and large quiches Tarts and speciality quiches made with eggs from free range Havensfield, pork pies, Suffolk 'Dingley Dell' sausage rolls, pasties and a variety of small and large meat pies.  

“With locally sourced ingredients, all our pies are hand crafted to traditional recipes. They’re only made to order, and we bake fresh on the morning of delivery.  Country Pies have been baking pies for almost 20 years. We supply some of the country’s fine food establishments – including London’s top chefs – who appreciate the value of using only the finest ingredients in their pies.”

The fish we sell in the shop is from Paul Utting, a fisherman from Lowestoft, who delivers locally each week on Fridays.   We can supply smoked mackerel, smoked haddock which you can find in the chiller, as well as cod and plaice fillets which we freeze along with his fish pie mixes.

Eggs are delivered each week from Gate Farm at Flowton, near Ipswich.

Potatoes and seasonal vegetables couldn’t be much closer as they come from Crag Pit Farm just outside Tattingstone.

We also now have organic seasonal vegetables supplied by Home Farm, Nacton.

Our  bread comes from The Vicarage 

Bakery in Dovercourt and includes both sliced and unsliced loaves, seeded bread as well as cheese baps and plain rolls.

We stock a good range of pulses, grains, nuts and other whole food items which we are fortunate to be able to sell at the same price as our supplier, The Wholefood Store in Manningtree“Our ambition at The Wholefood Store has always been to seek out the highest quality food from local and international sources. Our passion is food, and we feel most passionate about food that is simple and unadulterated. We steer away from artificial additives, sweeteners, colourings, preservatives and hydrogenated fat. We are committed to selling good food that is ethically sourced, natural, GM free, organic and fair-trade.”

We also order from the Suma Wholefood Co-operative.  This is a workers’ co-operative which is owned and managed by all their staff.  "All our products are diligently sourced; all are vegetarian and where eggs are an ingredient, they are free-range. We stock organic versions of everything we can, support fair-trade as a licensee of the Fairtrade Foundation and all our bodycare, cosmetic and household products are cruelty-free.”
