THIS POST IS FOR MY LOCAL SOUTH OF ENGLAND READERS AND PATIENTS
During the Covid-19 lockdown you can support your local independent producers and get some healthy organic produce in your diet. If you spot any great producers I have missed, leave a message to me in the comments. I will pick it up. NOTE: I recommend checking the websites before you set out as their COVID-19 information may be updated at any time.
