Chalk Stream Foods
Chalk Stream Foods finest Hampshire Chalk Stream rainbow trout is some of the tastiest, richest and leanest in the UK as a result of their unique habitat. Based in Romsey they rear their trout from sustainable farms on the Rivers Test and Itchen. These world-famous spring-fed chalk streams with ‘gin clear’ and constantly flowing water provides the perfect environment for their trout to grow and give the fish a clean, sensational taste whether smoked or fresh.
Lyburn farm lies on the northern edge of the New Forest, straddling the small river Blackwater, and has been farmed by the Smales family and Mike and Judy in particular for the last 40 years. Lyburn farm makes a variety of different handmade cheeses, all of which are made from their own cow’s milk. Although they are pressed, these artisan cheeses are not that close to cheddar cheese. They are, in general, a softer and a more continental type of cheese, with the exception of Old Winchester.
