What is Hampshire Fare?

Hampshire Fare is a small team making a big difference, by championing local produce to consumers and trade businesses. The aim is to inspire residents to discover the abundance of produce available on the doorstep, including cheese, charcuterie and cider, and establish Hampshire as a top foodie destination.

This is achieved through facilitating events, opportunities, publicity, and having a voice with local and national organisations. The intention is to encourage members' development, inform the public and educate the next generation.

30 Years Championing Local 

Hampshire Fare was set up by a small group of farmers in 1991 to raise awareness of local produce, and was supported by Hampshire County Council for about 20 years. Hampshire Fare has now grown into a community interest company with about 400 members - working together to celebrate local.

Don't Just Take Our Word For It! 

“Hampshire has a distinctive and impressive food story to tell and as a producer I am really grateful for the work Hampshire Fare does to get that message out.” William Selborne, Blackmoor Estate.

“I have long been a fan of Hampshire Fare. With community and local food at the heart of what they stand for, they have been so helpful and encouraging. In the early days, as a new small producer, they were a reassuring voice championing the best of local, encouraging folk to look close to home and discover the joys of local produce.” Nuala Grandcourt, Wild Island.

 

The Land That Feeds Us

From coast to countryside, river valley to downland, heath to forest, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight's diverse growing conditions provide an abundance of produce incuding honey and strawberries, trout and crab, wheat, watercress, hops, vines, pannage pork and more.
