South Devon is home to some really outstanding local food producers, so why not take the Totnes10 #festivefood challenge to make your Christmas locally sourced?
If that feels super challenging, this Local #FestiveFoodseries is here to help with ways to source and get creative with your festive food.
First up is Grown in Totnes (GiT). Grown in Totnes is a project working with local farmers to produce, process and sell grains and pulses. They hand process at their GiT unit on Totnes industrial estate, and are launching their white and wholemeal flour, grown at Huxhams Cross Farm just up the road.
Check out their stall at the Totnes Christmas Market over the next two Tuesdays. You’ll find them outside Ben’s Wine & Tapas restaurant under the Butter-walk selling local wheat flours, rolled oats and super scrummy Parkin.
As an alternative Christmas pud, why not make an oaty spiced crumble, and visit the Grown in Totnes stall for their legendary Parkin recipe.
