Happerley Food Heavens at the races!

New to Andoversford Races this year, and extending to next weekend's Cotswold Vale fixture, is a fresh concept in food provenance. Created by food provenance lobby group Happerley in partnership with Best of Our Counties, the Food Heavens will demonstrate the broad range of wonderful produce - food & drink - reared and produced in Gloucestershire and the surrounding counties. The Happerley stamp ensures that you the consumer can be totally confident that the food you are eating comes from the farm stipulated. 

Adam Henson, champion of the countryside, and BBC Countryfile presenter as well as a practising farmer himself, will open the Happerley Food Heavens on race day morning, and attend the day to talk to consumers, alongside tasting sessions, cookery theatre and recipe ideas that you can pick up when browsing. The goods for sale are for the take-home market, although our own  will look after more immediate needs!



Welcome to the best store in England!

In February, the Co-op store in Bourton-on-the-Water was named the best store in England by leading retail experts IGD. It was a very proud moment for Mid-Countiesw Co-Op, for whom their Best of our Counties range came in for special praise for its support of local suppliers and producers.

So, whether you’re preparing for something special, or just want to put a little more love into your cooking, Bourton Co-Op has so much to explore and discover in store. The area around Bourton-on-the-Water, area produces some of the finest food and drink in the country.

You can discover the very best our local and neighbouring counties have to offer in the Best of our Counties range, a mouth-watering selection that contains over 800 products from 100 local producers. From high-quality fresh meat reared on local farms, to delicious beers crafted to perfection at the family brewery down the road, you won’t have to go far to find the ingredients you love.

Look out for the Best of our Counties logo around the store, where you’ll find the products that truly are perfected with passion, sold with pride.
