September is traditionally the time of the Harvest. The end of summer sees fruits, vegetables and field crops reaching their prime and being gathered in by farmers across the land. It’s the perfect time to celebrate (and give thanks for) what’s been produced for us all to enjoy.
This particular year, the importance of where our food comes from has taken on new meaning and we believe that the public’s recognition of the role that farmers, growers, and producers play in our own lives has taken on a new importance.
In a similar way, British Food Fortnight (19th September to 4th October) takes on a new significance this year, as food producers and retailers look to celebrate the foods that are produced here in the British Isles. Whether it’s artisan cheeses, baked goods, preserves and chutneys, meat products, fish from our seas, a whole gamut of fruits and vegetables, all should be celebrated for the quality and range available to us. Take a look at the British Food Fortnight website to find out more and to see how you can get involved. https://www.lovebritishfood.co.uk/14-things-you-can-do
