The Paddock has a pantry packed full of organic goodies and local produce to supplement your weekly veg box.
Most of our pantry selection comes from SUMA wholefoods, the UK's largest independent wholefood wholesaler/distributor, specialising in vegetarian, fairly traded, organic, ethical and natural products. They are a worker's co-operative committed to ethical business.
The remainder of our pantry selection comes from trusted, local suppliers:
Baste and Bray produce extra virgin cold pressed rapeseed oil, using a slow process to ensure the natural qualities and flavour of the oil are retained, producing a high quality oil. The rapeseed is sourced from local farmers from fields surrounding the village of Warkworth, Northumberland. The blend of rugged coast and country combine to produce a superior tasting oil which is healthy too! Rich in omega 3, 6 and 9, this oil also has half the saturated fat of olive oil and is ideal for cooking or drizzling.
Fentimans, based in the North East, have been making natural botanical drinks for over 100 years. The artisanal drinks are brewed for 7 days using the time honoured botanical brewing process, using a combination of infusion, skilful blending and fermentation of natural ingredients. Thomas Fentimans time honoured approach hasn't changed much in over 100 years, with the knowledge and expertise being passed on from generation to generation of the Fentiman's family. The result is an authentic, superior drink that tastes simply delicious.
Gilchesters Organics are the North East's only organic flour mill, producing some of the finest flour you can lay your hands on from gently stone ground rare breed grains. Situated just 2 miles from Hadrian's Wall. Jo, from Rise Bakery, and Alice (Alice's Bakery) then uses this fantastic flour to bake their lovely hand made bread fresh for our farm shop and delivery service.

The Northumbrian Smokehouse are the only local smokehouse providing a range of smoked and roasted nuts and organic super seeds.
Yockenthwaite Farm produce delicious breakfast cereals including granola, muesli and oats on their farm in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. Traditionally a hill sheep farm, the Hirds have farmed Yockenthwaite Farm since 1842 and in addition to sheep farming, they produce a delicious range of breakfast cereals which The Paddock is now lucky enough to stock. A small family business with lots of flavour. The Hirds roll their own porridge oats straight from the groat with no further cooking or processing, making a nutritionally superior and tastier breakfast cereal. They make their Muesli using these oats, a simple Bircher style Muesli, a popular and healthy choice if you prefer no sugar. Now with a fantastic selection of Granola on offer too, with or without nuts, there is something for everyone. The flour comes from local Yorkshire farms, either wheat or spelt wholegrain, nothing added and nothing taken away, retaining all it's natural goodness. The granola is sweetened with natural raw honey and bound together with sunflower oil, a sprinkling of sesame seeds, a smidgen of Madagascan vanilla and a pinch of sea salt. The Not So Sweet varieties contain only the raw honey, whilst the Original Nutty granola has a little un-refined muscovado sugar added.
