I pride myself on using local ingredients sourced where possible from local suppliers.
“Welcome to Ballards Butchers, a family run farmer-butcher shop in Castle Douglas. We sell tender and flavoursome Scotch Beef, Scotch Lamb and Scotch Pork to online customers across the UK. Our meat comes from our own farm and a few other carefully selected local farms. Traditional breed meat reared for tenderness and delivered with care.”
“Glen Urr Ice cream is lovingly made with the milk and cream produced from our award winning herd of Ayrshire cows at Halmyre Farm, Haugh of Urr, Castle Douglas. We also make a wide range of fruit sorbets which are made from fresh fruit when available. These are extremely popular with those who may have lacto intolerance but enjoy the experience of an ice cream. The texture of our sorbets is not in any way ‘icy’ but creamy and luxurious and packed full of fruit flavour. We pride ourselves in using 100% natural ingredients. There are no artificial colourings or preservatives in either our ice creams or sorbets.”
“Nestling on the banks of Wigtown Bay is the Galloway Smokehouse, home of prize winning smoked salmon, trout, seafood and game. From the simple kipper to the grand salmon a huge variety of smoked food is on offer. As well as selling smoked foods their shop sells a wide variety of local produce including Galloway honey, jams, pickles, sauces and ice cream. They also have a fresh fish counter. Some of the fish they catch themselves, some sourced from local fishermen who they and I know personally, and some come from further afield.”
I hope you enjoy eating at my restaurant.
