During the summer season, Little Arthur Farm opens its cafe and bistro, cooking and serving food produced on the farm. We believe in guaranteeing the provenance of our food by growing it ourselves, be it salad leaves, fresh tomatoes, beef from animals grazed on our own pastures, milk from our Guernsey cows and goats or eggs from our Rhode Island hens. We believe in picking our tomatoes when they have been allowed to ripen naturally to develop their true flavour, not picked green and then ripened with gases and hormones. We believe in cows that have grazed their own grass, not stall-fed milk machines gorging on omnivorous diets and chemicals. We believe in fish that has been sustainably fished in the clear waters around Scilly, not in factory ship produce that has been flown in from the other side of the world.
