Great to see the full range of one of our newer suppliers, the Somerset Cheese Company, at the Frome Farmers Market this weekend.
Cheese-maker Philip Rainbow has over 40 years experience in the business and has won awards at both national and international shows: tasting his cheeses it’s easy to understand why!
We’re so pleased to be able to offer several cheeses from the range in Bruton Wholefoods now. These cheeses are suitable for vegetarians and include goat, sheep, and buffalo milk cheese. They are all handcrafted just five miles away from us in Ditcheat.
We’ve been busy stocking the shop with lots of festive treats:
plenty of baked goods including some that are organic, gluten-free and/or dairy-free
baking ingredients, for those of you who’d rather bake your own
presents for those with a sweet tooth, again including organic, fairtrade, and dairy free treats
some great tinned sets, for edible presents with a lasting presence
and gifts with a difference, including locally made luxuries
and some generally good things!

This autumn we’ve had some great veg
some amazing fruit
some fantastic produce that’s either local or with local links
and a new chiller and shelving!
All looking good: do pop in if you haven’t seen it yet!
Harvest time is truly here, so a quick glimpse of some of the produce we’ve had in the shop.
Tia’s beans, and tomatoes, grown locally in Hadspen.
Olivia’s eggs, which travelled a few meters, not miles to get here.
Honey on the comb (and some off the comb) from Chris just a few miles away in Castle Cary.
Some wonderful plums.
And the ultimate in value: some free crab apples!
And the great, fresh produce keeps on coming in! Here are just a few of the locally grown or organic goodies we’ve had in this month.
Plant it on and grow your own basil
Organic graffiti aubergines and locally grown courgettes
Locally grown tomatoes
Just a few of the lovely fruit and vegetables we’ve had in recently – and just in now:
wonderful local honey from Chris Wright!
We’ve some lovely fresh vegies, like this beautiful pak choi, some green garlic, and lovely new potatoes!
And what with the summer finally arriving, we’ve been doing pretty well with our sun products (and ice lollies) too.
Not to mention chilli and tomato plants grown by Tia – they’re shifting pretty quickly though, so get here fast if you want some!
Great to see that Tia Cusden has now got her Wild Garden website up and running, so we can give you more of a glimpse into the origins of her wonderful salads and herbs.
In the beginning of the season Tia’s produce was grown under glass, but as you can see she’s now in full production outdoors, in the famous ‘parabola’ walled garden at Hadspen House.
Tia’s bringing fresh salad and herb bags into us at Bruton Wholefoods twice a week now, midday-ish on Mondays and Thursdays, but they’re in great demand so don’t leave it too long to pop in or you might find they’ve all sold out!
The contents of the salad bags change according to what’s best on the day – this week we’ve been delighted to find Heartsease violets brightening up our salad bowls!
Thought you might like a quick glimpse of some of the lovely produce coming into the shop these day – it leaves again pretty quickly!
