New to the shelves and still stocking

Our local honey range in the shop is growing – we now have small and larger jars of local honey from just down the road in Galmpton and Dartington.

John’s Lovely Bees 100% Pure Honey from Dartington is available in a 454g jar and Hoodown Farm’s Pure Devon Honey from Galmpton is available in a 198g jar.

We continue to stock individual rolls of Bazoo’s 100% Bamboo toilet paper. The double-length, 300 sheet, 3-ply rolls come in 100% recycled packaging and provide a cheaper cost per sheet than leading brands.
