22 Aug Shop Local With BigBarn For a Christmas Dinner to Remember
It’s arguably the most important meal of the year. You’ve been planning it for months, practicing new recipes that could be delicious enough to join those tried and tested family favourites, but have you given any thought to where you’ll buy everything you need?
This year, make your Christmas dinner extra special by sourcing your turkey and veg from your local farm shop rather than simply heading to the supermarket.
We all know the benefits of buying locally rather than from a supermarket – you’ll discover great seasonal produce that tastes far better than the supermarket equivalents, find less of the excess plastic packaging that is too frequently used on supermarket goods and you can feel good about supporting your local community and local economy. Plus, you might even save a few pennies along the way as you are cutting out that expensive ‘middle man’.
Surprisingly, most people aren’t aware of the many farm shops, butchers, bakers or grocers located so close to their doorsteps. In fact, most people are likely to drive right past them to get to the supermarket.
To help you source the best and tastiest festive fare, check out BigBarn www.bigbarn.co.uk, the UK’s most complete local food and drink website. Log on and postcode search for retailers, producers and suppliers in your local area.
There’s even a dedicated Turkey Map to help you source that all important centrepiece for your festive feast.
