We have been beavering away researching the local producers around Suffolk, to find out what is grown and produced here. It’s been an uplifting and illuminating experience so far, which we’re keen to share with you. We’ll continue adding information on new producers as we discover them, to help you find those local to you.
Below is an interactive map of the producers across Suffolk we have researched so far. To use it, click the image to bring up the interactive version. For details of each marker, click on it to bring up the entry details, showing contact details for each producer and other relevant information. At the bottom of the map, you can click different coloured teardrops to filter the display by type, depending on which food group you’re wanting to source. To reset the map to show everything, click the word ‘Type’.
The full details for each marked business are also listed alphabetically below the interactive map which you can open by clicking once on the map below. Clicking on the text in the list here will take you to that marker on the map. Please explore it! And remember it’s a work in progress, so please let us know if you spot any mistakes or want to add a producer. Leave the details as a comment below and we’ll add it 🙂
For the proper challenge geeks who are sticking strictly to 30 miles, you can work out who is within 30 miles of your home by plotting your own 30 mile radius. This free mapping tool is quick and easy to get you started! Google maps is also useful for adding producers’ postcodes and checking the distance from your house. Good luck!
