Here at Heather we know that great food comes from great produce and we are in a lucky position to have some of the country’s best produce on our doorstep. Not only are we big fans of the produce and its quality, we are also big fans of the people behind the produce.
Close relationships with our local suppliers are very important to us to ensure we are getting the best, freshest produce to put on our plates at Heather.
