Use a farm shop There are over 3000 farm shops scattered throughout Britain's beautiful countryside each of them giving the visitor a delightful opportunity to access local, fresh, seasonal food and drink.

Look out for the Little Red Tractor The LRT logo appears only on food of British origin. When you buy food carrying the Little Red Tractor stamp of approval, you can be sure it has been produced to stringent standards that are independently inspected. These standards cover all aspects of farm production from looking after the countryside to food hygiene, from how animals are cared for to what they are fed. With the backing of all the major supermarkets, the Little Red Tractor has made its mark on thousands of different product lines across Britain. /images/food2.jpg
