One of the biggest draws for the Fens is the food. The Fens has a strong agricultural heritage and as the land is so fertile, it’s a great area for sourcing fresh, local produce.  Much of the country’s finest potatoes come from the Fens as well as a huge range of vegetables. Many of the traditional windmills are still used to produce a wide variety of flour, much of it organic and local bakers offer fabulous home-made breads, cakes and pastries. Our farmers and butchers supply some of Britain’s finest meat and we have a number of local specialities. Look for the 'Tastes of Lincolnshire' sign which identifies the restaurants, hotels, B&Bs, tea-rooms and pubs throughout Lincolnshire who use locally grown produce on their menus, or 'Taste of Anglia' in the Cambridgeshire and Norfolk Fens.

The food processing industry is a major employer. Many major retail supermarkets are supplied with canned, frozen and pre-packed food from this region.

For more information on suppliers of local produce in the Fens contact Tastes of Anglia, Telephone: 01473 785883 or Tastes of Lincolnshire, Telephone: 01522 823438.
