Our supplers

At Palmer’s we care deeply about our ingredients, our food and our beers.

That means we care about our suppliers too. We have found some very special people to work with, who supply us with some amazing products. Some are farmers, some are brewers or brewsters, some are makers of delicious cheese, or meats, or other specialist ingredients. But all are chosen because they are local to us in Long Sutton, or represent the very best of their trade, or both. We consider them all to be not just suppliers but friends.

We’d love you to meet them, and find out more about them.

Deb and Dean Wiltshire – beef

Much of the beef we serve at the Geese and Fountain is Dexter – partly because this traditional breed gives a richer, fuller flavour than the more recently developed commercial breeds, and partly because they are farmed by our almost-neighbours the Wiltshires, of Croxton Kerrial.

Oldershaw Brewery

Oldershaw Brewery is a family run business brewing in Barkston Heath, just outside Grantham. Kathy and Tim Britton, who run the brewery, live in Croxton, making Oldershaw our adopted ‘localest local brewer’. Expect to see a range of Oldershaw beers on regularly in both cask and bottle.

Burgin Lodge – lamb and hogget

Ros Turner at Burgin Lodge between Stonesby and Waltham on the Wolds has been rearing sheep for many years, working with local butcher Gwlym Owen at Launde Farm Foods. We use hogget rather than lamb – animals which are a year older than lamb, have lived more of a life and also developed more flavour.
