On the Road...

Find us at Food Festivals, Markets & more

We love getting out & about with our teas and our mobile tea chest. We're very fortunate to live in a region that has so many diverse festivals & markets and you can find out more below. Having lived in the forest over the last 10 years we are so grateful to be part of such a historical & environmentally significant area. If you have never visited the New Forest before here are some things you may not know:

Forest Facts

The New Forest isn’t in fact new! It was established by William the Conqueror in 1079 as Nova Foresta (new hunting ground)

The New Forest has the highest concentration of ancient & veteran trees in Western Europe with more than 1000 recorded

An incredible 63% of Britain’s insects, 75% of all Dragonfly species and all six UK Native reptiles are found here

There are five different species of Deer which roam freely in the forest

A third of British Wildflower species grow in the New Forest

Every autumn pigs are released into the forest to control the level of fallen acorns, this is known as pannage

Commoners in the New Forest still hold ancient rights of grazing in on the forest so you will see an array of ponies, cows, donkeys & sheep but please don’t feed them and drive carefully within the forest

With miles of walks, cycle paths, and more it's definitely worth a visit, and whilst you are here why not check out some of our amazing local producers & artisans....
