New Forest Food ChallengeThe New Forest Food Challenge is a project designed to help you ‘eat and grow local’.  Its interactive website has loads of details about markets, products, seasonal recipes and help for those who want to grow more of their own food.  Why not join in today and try the 5 Fun Food Challenges?

A project is currently being developed to create a virtual food platform which will allow sustainable and efficient movement of local produce throughout the New Forest. The software will connect local producers with hotels, restaurants and farm shops meaning supply chains ar more efficient and the availability of good is improved. The project is part financed through European INTERREG funding. Updates on this project will be posted here as the project develops.
