A STOCKBRIDGE farm shop is the latest addition to the Hampshire Fare county food group.
The Leckford farm shop, located on the Leckford Estate, opened in August and sells produce from in and around Hampshire. The managers aim to boost the regional economy by supporting local suppliers through its new links with the county food group.
Andrew Lazenby, commercial manager of the Leckford Estate, said: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to support the work of Hampshire Fare. The county is fortunate to have such a proactive and effective food group working to promote the interests of local producers.
“We want to show our ongoing commitment to local producers though our farm shop and our work with Hampshire Fare.”
Mike Wright, chairman of Hampshire Fare, said: “We are delighted to welcome the Leckford Estate as a Corporate Friend of Hampshire Fare. Our work is only possible thanks to the valued support of our Corporate Partners and Friends including the Leckford Estate.
“I have had the pleasure of visiting the new Leckford Farm Shop and seeing many local products on the shelves. I know that with our shared values it will be a beneficial partnership for all involved.”
