Local Suppliers and Food Treats

At Cavens we maintain an excellent relationship with local food suppliers, specialist shops and growers. Not only does this reduce our food miles, but ensures our guests enjoy the freshest ingredients possible and an authentic taste of the region. We firmly believe that the culinary credentials of Dumfries and Galloway are one of the true unsung highlights of the region, which is ideal for foodie breaks in Scotland! We use and highly recommend the following:

Loch Arthur Camphill Community  

www.locharthur.org.uk

Loch Arthur is a creamery and farm shop that is also a Social Enterprise, situated just 10 miles from us. With your dinner we will offer you some of their artisan breads, our cheese board consists of their award-winning cheeses made on site as well as other fantastic cheese that they source from all over Scotland. At breakfast, don’t miss out on their delicious granola. Their website calls it “the finest toasted breakfast cereal in the land!” and we agree!

J. B. Houston

All our breakfast meat (sausages, black pudding and bacon) are made locally at Houston’s Butchers in Dumfries. Established in 1950, they have many years’ experience in the trade and are renowned for quality meat. They have even been featured on TV chef programmes including Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall! Houston’s also provide all our other butcher meats, including our succulent Sirloin steaks.

 

Barony Country Foods

All our fish comes from Barony Country Foods, a small, award winning traditional Scottish smokehouse in Lochmaben, near Lockerbie. We use their duck and salmon, smoked in their very own smokehouse and scallops that they source locally. They also provide us with Scottish Venison Haunch and, when in season, Wild Solway Salmon!

Mrs. McMyn’s

The chickens that live at the bottom of our garden provide us with some eggs, but as they don’t lay quite as many as we need, Mrs McMyn’s eggs supply the rest. Mrs McMyn’s Lohmann brown hens roam freely on five acres of land. This helps them lay the best organic, free range eggs. Such high quality has its benefits not only in the taste, but also in the lovely yellow colour of the yolks.

Galloway Lodge Preserves

The raspberry jam and Seville orange marmalade on your breakfast table are made locally in Gatehouse of Fleet. They also make the peach chutney on the cheese board. Galloway Lodge Preserves use the finest ingredients and cook in small batches using traditional methods – this guarantees a quality product with an authentic taste.
