Aiming to encourage more visitors to Exmoor to enjoy the area’s delicious local produce and the landscape it comes from, Eat Exmoor is a comprehensive development & marketing project from Exmoor National Park and Visit Exmoor with support from West Somerset Council.
“Over £40m a year is spent by visitors to Greater Exmoor on food and drink. This is part of the Exmoor story: farming sustains the landscape, the landscape sustains tourism and food sustains visitors!”
Dan James, Sustainable Economy Manager
Exmoor National Park
The intention is to add value and bring benefits to the numerous food initiatives already in place across Exmoor from iconic products to unique events and experiences and those establishments serving the very best local food and drink. Read more about the project here (PDF).
The first ever Eat Exmoor Food and Dink trade show was held in February 2018. Approx. 200 people attended with over 30 trade stands, chef demos and inspiring talks. The day encouraged greater links between local producers and hospitality providers and encouraged greater use of local produce by all. Details of future events will be posted here.
