Bowhouse replaces a missing link in the local food chain.
It connects small growers and producers with restaurants and shoppers, giving everyone better access to the best ingredients and finished produce that the East Neuk has to offer.
There are a few reasons why the scale of the producer should be linked to the quality of the food and drink they produce. The very best producers are rarely the largest – the skill and passion of the producer is far more important.
A Stronger Local Supply Chain
By encouraging a shorter, local supply chain to flourish, as a community we will be able to retain more of the highly-coveted raw ingredients yielded in the East Neuk here for us, rather than losing out to bigger urban or overseas markets.
Increasingly people are looking to eat with the seasons and question the provenance of the ingredients that they are buying. They want to know how their food is grown and reared and to meet the people making it. They want to buy what they need and then eat every bit of it. In these small ways individuals are feeling empowered to change the way food is produced around them.
For People Who Really Care About Food
At its heart, Bowhouse is a gathering place for people who really care about food. We look forward to welcoming you there soon.
