Seasonal Newsletter

Welcome to our Summer Newsletter, and with the North Yorkshire countryside looking especially glorious at the moment, there is no better time to get out and about to discover all the wonderful local produce.

We hope you enjoy these summery stories and features which give a flavour of the many North Yorkshire producers and growers, farmers, farm shops, butchers, cafes, restaurants and other speciality local food outlets.

So why not go Al fresco - take a country drive, go fruit picking, dine under a parasol, pack a picnic, and enjoy a wonderful Summer in North Yorkshire.

The web site is also your very own personal directory of recipes, seasonal tips and ideas. Let it take you on a journey of discovery across North Yorkshire. Be it organic, free range, traditionally reared or rare-breed itís all there just waiting to be discovered.

We hope you enjoy reading it.

Yours sincerely,

The North Yorkshire Local Food Team
