Where Do We Source Our Fresh Local Fruit & Veg?

It’s a question we are often asked by guests here at Sennen, perhaps after they have enjoyed a dish packed with seasonal greens, or one of our homemade ice creams laced with summer fruit. The answer is that we are very lucky to have great relationships with local growers within a short distance of Sennen Cove, and it’s thanks to these relationships that our menu packs a fresh punch all year round.

One such grower is Bosavern Community Farm, which is located just a few miles away near St Just. This not-for-profit social enterprise is a community initiative to produce and sell local food, and to encourage people to come together to use the land for educational, environmental and social purposes.

The Bosavern polytunnels, fruit cages, bee hives and hens are kept busy supplying a farm shop, a veg box scheme, local markets and businesses like ours. We talk to the team every week to find out what’s in abundance before placing an order, and our fresh veg is picked and transported the next day. It’s the epitome of field-fresh, low food miles sourcing and we love it!

Another fantastic local grower is Alsia Cross Market Garden, which is also just a short drive away in St Buryan. Ben has been working with these guys for many years – first at The Tolcarne and now at Ben Tunnicliffe Sennen Cove, and we really rate the produce and service.

Alsia Cross Market Garden is an organic family farm growing vegetables, salads and herbs. The team supply a shop in St Just as well as a small number of local restaurants – so we count ourselves very lucky!

We have huge respect for the people growing such fabulous produce, and we treat the fruits of their labours with the utmost respect. We are lucky to be able to offer an evolving menu of seasonal specials designed by Ben, which gives our chefs the opportunity to showcase these fresh ingredients as they arrive at the kitchen door – after the short journey from the field.
