Here at Howbarrow, we grow our own herbs and salad vegetables in polytunnels for at least 8 months of the year.

We use local suppliers where possible for other organic products and have a growing number of Cumbrian suppliers.

Atkinsons, Milnthorpe – locally grown vegetables

Growing Well, Low Sizergh Farm, Kendal – locally grown vegetables and hebs

Hawkshead Trout Farm

Country Cuts Organic Meat, Holmrook, Cumbria – for meat

Mansergh Hall, Kirkby Lonsdale – for meat

The Watermill, Little Salkeld, Penrith – for flour and porridge oats

Slack House Farm, Gilsland, Brampton – for cheese

South Lakes Organic Milk, Ulverston – for milk and cream

Lowther Park Farms, Penrith – for chicken

The Fairground, Staveley – for Fairtrade coffee

We get all of our fruit and a lot of our vegetables direct from organic suppliers and growers in the north west. They, in turn, import some of the produce, as, no matter how ‘local’ we try to be, bananas will never be grown in UK!

We currently use:-

Lyncroft Farm, Ormskirk

Goosemoor Organic Produce, Wetherby

And for dried and tinned goods:-

Suma Wholefoods, Elland, Halifax

Juniper Fine Foods, Dumfries
