Welcome to Food On Our Doorstep, your on-line guide to locally-produced food and where you can buy it.
Covering a radius of 10 miles or so of High Wycombe town centre (encompassing Watlington, Chinnor, Princes Risborough, Wendover, Great Missenden, Chesham, Amersham, Beaconsfield, Marlow, Maidenhead, Henley, Hambleden and everything in between), it lists the farmers and growers who sell direct to the public or via local outlets, and other food businesses who actively seek to source produce locally.
Because we believe that locally-produced food is a good thing, we made a deliberate decision at the outset to provide free listing for all producers and other businesses that meet our criteria. This is how it will remain. The result is that, whether big or small, local food businesses get the promotion they deserve; and it also makes our list as comprehensive and thus as useful as possible for potential customers. If you know of other businesses that should be considered for listing, or spot any instances where our information is out-of-date, please let us know.
The map below shows the area covered which, to assist with searching, is divided into five sub-areas.
