What is 'local food'?

We don't see local food as a fashion trend, as something to export or as just a tourism aid but something that is here to sustain us, link us to the land and the people that make local food work.

We want to see Durham produce on Durham plates and just in case we haven't made it clear so far then our directory is all about LOCAL FOOD businesses and not LOCAL food businesses.

Fairtrade and Ethical Food Purchase

Here amongst the website team we recognise that an entire diet of local food within County Durham could be both exciting and at times limiting your needs. With time we hope the amount and diversity of the food grown locally will increase. There appears to be plenty of meat, dairy and eggs in the area.
