Love Local Trust Local was fortunate enough to help showcase some of the best Dorset produce on offer at the Dorset Spring Show a few weeks ago.
We worked alongside Peter Morgan of The Book & Bucket Cheese Company and Rachael Perrett from Meggy Moo’s Dairy.
Both of these Dorset food champions are much-loved members of the Love Local Trust Local family, and have been since we set up in 2018.
The three of us were a great team; cooking and talking about our local Dorset produce and ingredients while we explained to the audience the importance of supporting our British food producers and farmers. Why we should all be using as much local and in-season produce as possible, to keep our carbon footprints to a minimum. It was great to see so many people enjoying their day out despite the challenging British weather. We’re a nation of real troupers!
On both show days we had a big audience listening and watching our food demos – it was fabulous to see so many people enjoying a taste of what we had produced and genuinely interested in what we had to say. We all came away buzzing with energy and excitement … and sore feet!

The local directory
Dorset is a beautiful place with an abundance of food producers and it’s so important to keep spreading the good word about what we are doing for food and farming. We will shortly be launching a handy directory of Dorset food producers on the new Love Local Trust Local website. This will help people to discover where they can buy local produce in their villages and towns; which of the shops will be stocking local Dorset produce, as well as where the county’s milk vending machines are located. It will include lots of farm shops and butchers for sourcing local meat and cheeses, plus some of our local Dorset bakeries with their delicious homemade bread and cakes.
Now more than ever it is so important that we all work together and help support each other in these costly and challenging times.
We must not rely on imported foods and we must not forget that supermarkets do not grow the food; our farmers do.
Remember folks. No farmers, no food. It’s the real people in the food chain that matter
