Fodder Feels the Love
It’s February and that means Valentine’s Day is on the horizon and we are feeling the love so we thought we would share with you just some of the way we are spreading the love….
The motto we aim to abide by at Fodder is love local food and we like to incorporate this into our daily ethos. We currently have over 350 suppliers of which the majority of them are based in Yorkshire. We deal with them directly to ensure they are paid a fair price.
When you step inside Fodder you’ll be greeted by a whole host of lovely, locally sourced products that we are proud to stock in our store. One of the key aspects to providing local products is that we know exactly where the food comes from and, in turn, means that the food travels less miles to land on your plate. It makes us feel good being able to guarantee fresh, good quality food and we hope it makes you feel good too!
We like to focus on seasonality at Fodder as produce that is purchased in season is not only fresher but is also packed with a whole host of lovely vitamins, minerals, fibres and enzymes. The higher nutritional value that these foods contain does wonders for ours bodies; the benefits of which include higher energy levels, a boosted immune system to reduce the risk of catching any nasty colds and they also fill us up so we are less likely to reach for those oh so tempting treats.
Love Helping the Environment
The love doesn’t stop in store as we are also committed to helping the environment. The building incorporates a total of 21 environmentally features including a living roof which provides a lovely habitat for lots of birds and insets.
Love the Local Community
We donate all food that is good enough to eat but not to sell to the Harrogate Homeless Project who provide warm meals and cooking skills to people sleeping rough in the area.
Fodder Plays Cupid
We couldn’t let Valentine’s pass by without offering something special for our customers. If you love an Afternoon Tea then this treat will be right up your street as from the 13th to 19th February, you’ll be able to order a themed Valentine’s Afternoon Tea in our café. This is made up of some very tasty treats including Raspberry Macarons, Passionfruit and Mango Delice and Rhubarb encased in chocolate.
If Afternoon Tea doesn’t appeal to you then do not fear as we have a range of gorgeous goodies available from chocolates and mugs to deliciously smelling candles. Or, if you want something that will really give the wow factor, we have a variety of hampers from Yorkshire Beer to Luxury Ladies available in store and online. Shop online or pop in and we will happily put together a bespoke hamper for you.
We Love You
We wouldn’t be where we are today without our lovely customers so we would like to thank you all for your on-going support. All our profits go towards funding the charitable work of the Yorkshire Agricultural society.
Love from Fodder
