Food & Drink
Tantalise your tastebuds!
Nowhere is more local than the food and drink sourced, grown, and reared across our five tiny inhabited islands. It represents the ultimate in slow food and low food miles. On your travels around the island you’ll more than likely be able to point to the local fisherman or farmer who’s provided the food on your plate! Watch them at work, talk to them and share their passion.
We're a family owned and run business where old traditions still hold. The Taylor family started making fudge twenty years ago on our farmhouse kitchen Aga. At Veronica Farm, on Bryher on the Isles of Scilly, we now have a purpose built fudge kitchen - still using traditional farmhouse methods.
