The Gatherers is opening with a drive towards sustainability and locality

Daniel Farrow, owner of The Gatherers bar and restaurant in Norwich says the restaurant will reopen it’s beer garden in April and then it’s indoor dining area in May with a new menu focused on sustainability and locality.

He says ‘Here at The Gatherers we are particularly focused on sustainable agriculture and sustainable dining. This is reflected on our menu and the food on your plate. Almost the entirety of our produce is sourced from Norfolk with the only odd product from further afield and the odd thing like the salt we use from the UK. All of our vegetables are from Norfolk, from the flour we use in our pastas and breads, the spelt for our farrotto risottos, Norfolk produce is at the heart of everything we make. We grow our own herbs and  we’re even looking into purchasing land to grow many of our own vegetables. Our menus are printed on recycled card and we also offer a range of wines and spirits that are also from Norfolk. We believe in going the extra mile so that the produce we use doesn’t travel the extra mile, reducing our carbon foot print and supporting the local economy,  agriculture and community!’

Daniel is also launching a fund named The Gatherers Community Fund, which will donate to community projects aimed at sustainability, education and agricultural support.
