Taste the Landscape: Somerset's first food trail

20 July 2018 00:00 - 29 July 2018 00:00
Mendip and surrounding areas, ranging from Wells, Wookey and Wedmore to Shepton Mallet, Bruton and the Brue Valley.

Wells Food Network - member of the Sustainable Food Cities Network since 2016 - and partners are organising Somerset's first food trail.

Dozens of food producers are opening their doors to celebrate the best of locally produced and sustainable food. Participants include goat herders, cider makers, dairy farmers, cheese makers, pubs, vineyards, bakers and vegetable growers.

Wells Food Network chair Stewart Crocker said: “Food and farming have always been a vital part of the life of Somerset, shaping both our landscape and our economy for generations. Yet our food and farming system is under pressure as never before and diet-related health problems, such as type two diabetes and obesity, are on the rise. We believe that by putting healthy, sustainable food at the heart of all we do, we can strengthen our communities, conserve our countryside and boost our local economy."
