Ali`s Homemade Produce

ALI’S HOMEMADE PRODUCE was born in October 2013 but it started a long time before then.  My granny taught my mum to cook, my mum taught me and from an early age I can always remember the garden brimming full of fruits and veggies – and they were never wasted.  Jams were made, crumbles, cakes, pies and chutneys stirred with tireless love.  This is where my love of cooking began.  My savoury and sweet pastries are made using as much local produce from Dorset. Things are used when they’re at their best so some my products are only available when things are in season.  I make everything by hand in small batches so it’s a labour of love. 

Keep an eye on my facebook page – Ali’s Homemade Produce – for where I am.

Buckshaw Milk Sheep

Buckshaw Milk Sheep is a family run business managing a sheep farm in North West Dorset. This rural location is perfect for raising healthy and happy sheep and in turn, the Dorset pasture helps make great tasting cheese.

Not only are milks and cheeses from sheep delicious, they are also healthier than other alternatives. Unlike cows’ or goats’ milk, sheep milk has a sweet, creamy taste and produces an incredible, unique flavour cheese, of which there can be many varieties. Sheep milk is also more nutritious and lower in saturated fat than cow or goat milk and has been proven to help lower cholesterol. The lactose content is also lower than in cow’s milk, which is beneficial for those who have an intolerance but still want to enjoy delicious cheese, milk and cream.

We hand milk our ewes and our Buckshaw cheese is all handmade onsite. Because of the creamy nature of sheep milk and the glorious pastures the sheep roam, Buckshaw cheese has a distinctive taste that brings customers back time and time again.

At present we make Buckshaw Blew, a semi-hard blue cheese, Buckshaw White, a strong unpressed white cheese, Buckshaw Feta, a fresh curd, feta style cheese which is less salty than your usual and a soft curd cheese which we flavour with garlic, apricots or chives, Buckshaw Cottage

Filthy Fit

Filthy Fit is a health conscious brand that expresses our passion, happy eating and living. We gathered our skills together and created some pretty unusual, but delicate nut and seed butters.

My husband and I always dreamed about having our own business one day. In the end of 2020 we finally had an idea that really made us excited and we started experimenting almost immediately.

Our uniqueness especially are the savoury flavours that can be used in cooking – just imagine stuffed mushrooms with a garlic and cayenne spiced almond butter, a ravioli with Italian herb flavoured peanut butter, or a burger with curry spiced peanut butter.

Our assortment is refined sugar free, palm oil free, preservative free, and we only use natural ingredients in our products.

We would love to be known as a brand that has the most unique and exciting nut and seed butters on the market.

MA BOLTON

Ma Bolton came about in name as friends called me Ma a nickname for the baker who just liked to feed everyone.  With two sons starting out life with a dairy intolerance and myself with a wheat intolerance, free from  food experimentation became essential to a food lover such as myself.  I take a great deal of joy in providing great tasting gluten free food for those who often have to miss out on favorite treats.  I continue to enjoy the creative process of a new recipe idea.  All of my food is gluten free with a good proportion being dairy free and always an egg free option too.

You will find many flavour adventure preserves and seasonal syrups on my stall as these  naturally come hand in hand with baking. Try one of my chutney’s to improve your favorite sandwich.  Or a seasonal syrup to be added to coffees and cocktails.

BOURNE COFFEE

 

At Bourne Coffee we are passionate about our coffee, we take great care choosing our coffee beans ensuring they are ethically sourced from the finest growing regions around the world. Each type of bean has different flavour characteristics, and each growing area lends different flavours to the coffee due to the unique soil, weather and growing conditions.

By roasting all our coffees by hand, we rely on our sense of smell, sight, and sound to guide our roasting. When the coffee has been roasted to over 200oC where we believe the flavours of that individual batch will be at its best, the beans are rapidly cooled and then rested for 48 hours before packing. Roasting to order we ensure that the customer receives their coffee in a fresh as possible condition to enjoy the best flavours that coffee has to offer.
Take pleasure in experiencing the fragrant and delicate aromas of our great tasting and well-balanced 100% arabica gourmet coffee – an unforgettable experience.

Dorseteco

Dorseteco is a family run business based near Blandford, our aim is simply to encourage others to think about what they buy and to encourage them to change some of their habits over to more sustainable products, from our environmentally friendly, compostable, biodegradable range.  We are constantly on the look out for other eco friendly products and we sell from the local markets in Dorchester, Westbourne, Weymouth and Swanage and can be found at other events across the county.

Our main seller is the range of blankets, rugs and throws made entirely from recycled plastic bottles by Weaver Green, these amazing products have to be seen to be believed.  We loved the fact that they had found a way to use the bottles that would’ve otherwise ended up in landfill or our oceans.  Weaver Green have now recycled over 170 million bottles!

We are very proud to sell the Bridport based Elephant Box range of stainless steel containers.  The range includes snack boxes, lunch boxes, storage containers, water bottles and insulated thermos flasks.  These containers are built to last a lifetime out of already recycled stainless steel and will mean you never need to buy a plastic container again.

Come and see us at one of the markets, we look forward to meeting you soon.
