Local Produce

A tasty treat lies in store for short break visitors to Durham as they will soon be welcomed with a hamper filled with foodie delights – all produced by Durham’s independent local food makers.

The ‘Taste Durham Welcome Pack’ will be supplied to self-catering guests, giving hosts the opportunity to introduce their guests to a selection of unique local produce.  Sourced from around the county, the packs will include:

•           Sausages and bacon from pigs reared at Houghall Agricultural Farm
•           Dairy products such as milk, butter and yoghurt made at Embleton Hall
•           Jams and marmalade made in Consett
•           Bread made by an artisan bakery in Bishop Auckland with spelt flour grown and milled near Sedgefield
•           Coffee roasted, ground and blended in Lonton, Barnard Castle
•           Honey from South Durham Honey
•           Durham Cinder Toffee from Langley Park

The pack is developed by Durham Food Hub in partnership with Visit County Durham, and is one of a number of new plans which have been created with the aim of giving small regional producers the chance to reach both national and international visitors to Durham more directly.

The roll out of the ‘Taste Durham Welcome Pack’ makes for delicious addition to Taste Durham Month, an annual event which celebrates the diversity of the county’s food and drink experiences and the best of local produce.
