Breakfast, lunch and dinner at Pewsey’s Good Food GarageAlternatives to the High Street supermarket are springing up all over the area. This week marlborough.news has visited the Good Food Garage which is a newly opened organic food shop in Pewsey. Opened by Vicky Marshall, who for many years has sold organic dog food through her business – Honey’s Real Dogfood, the shop stocks all the ingredients you need to make a healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Vicky told marlborough.news: “I want to make good quality produce available to as many people as possible. We are not a fancy farm shop, there are no frills as I want to keep costs down. We use minimal packaging and the plastic packaging used on the frozen meat is recyclable.”
“I try to source handmade local products – a local lady makes scotch eggs for us and supplies free range eggs. Another local lady makes cheese scones for us. I want people to have high welfare products and to buy locally. I want to support farmers who are committed to free range farming – you can taste the difference.”
The Good Food Garage can be found at Unit 9 on the Salisbury Road Business Park, Pewsey. Vicky’s breakfast range includes handmade muesli, organic oats and cereals, local jams and honey, fresh eggs, oatly milk and non- homogenised milk from a local dairy. Gluten free and dairy free products are available.
For lunch, bread rolls from Marshalls Bakery, Pewsey are filled on the premises and a range of savoury pastries are available from Honesty Bakery in Newbury. There is also a selection of cakes, also from Honesty Bakery, where everything is handmade using local ingredients.
All the meat sold is free range and some of it is organic. Vicky visits the farms and checks out the abattoirs. “It’s all about animal welfare.”
Sausages are handmade on the premises. With a local brewery next door, pork and cider sausages are a speciality. All the pork sold is free range.
As well as a good range of organic vegetables, Vicky also stocks spices for one meal tray bakes. Where possible no palm oil is contained in any of her products.
