Following the success of 'Homemade in Haddenham' and the encouragement of Haddenham in Transition, a group of us came together in October 2011 to form Vale Harvest.
There's a wealth of producers in the Aylesbury Vale...and yet many of the people who live in the area are unaware of what's on offer. We want to help consumers connect with local producers, whether buying direct from a supplier or from a local retailer.
From organic farms and award-winning beer to home-made jam and artisan ice cream, there's plenty of produce just around the corner.
Buying local food is a great way to support your local economy, and do your bit for the environment by maintaining the countryside
and reducing food miles.
By raising awareness of the many producers in our area, our aim is to make it easier for local people to buy and sell local food.
Transition is a worldwide movement of like-minded communities aiming to reduce dependency on fossil fuels and meet needs from local resources.
Haddenham is full of people with the energy and creativity to make the most of our local resources.
HiT aims to support local individuals, groups and businesses through initiatives aimed at bringing people together and promoting ‘green’ ideas.
