Locally-sourced produce goes on sale at Suffolk venue


An award-winning country house and estate in Suffolk is providing a new food provenance experience for its guests, with local produce on sale in rustic hampers at the venue.

Bruisyard Hall, which boasts a TripAdvisor five-star Gold Rating, is going one step further to support its region’s producers, by stocking the new hampers with Suffolk cider, fruit juice, rapeseed oil and much more.

With the growing demand for locally-sourced food still going strong, historic Bruisyard Hall’s new hampers will include descriptions of each product’s heritage in a bid to also expand the premium experiences at the property.

The complete hamper will consist of: Munchy Seeds; Yum Yum Tree Fudge; Fairfields Farm Crisps; Hills Farm Oils; Aspall Cyders; Paddy & Scott’s Coffee; Shawsgate Vineyards & Jarrett Tea Company; Stokes Preserves & Sauces and James White Fruit Juices.

Dating back to 1354, Bruisyard Hall is set within 700 acres of Suffolk countryside, complete with 150 acres of woodland.

A popular choice for weddings, the venue can be hired for exclusive use and is then also available for bed and breakfast from Monday – Thursday.

In 2015, the property underwent a £1.5m refurbishment, restoring the property to its previous splendour. The Hall can accommodate up to 20 guests, with an additional two rooms available in the adjacent Bruisyard Barn, enabling 24 guests to stay on the estate.

Owner of Bruisyard Hall, Paul Rous said: “We have handpicked every item in our welcome hampers to deliver a true taste of Suffolk. Premised on the idea that you have come across a hidden treasure, something far from your usual commercial hamper which can be purchased and enjoyed in the exclusive surrounds of our historic manor.”
