At the Vaults and Garden we think local is best, that's why our Oxfordshire partnerships are so important to us.
For the last 15 years we have been working alongside local farmers and suppliers to source the best ingredients in order to create the tastiest dishes possible. Not only does this make for delicious food but staying local also minimises our environmental impact as we don't import our ingredients from overseas. All our produce is organic meaning there are no harmful pesticides or fertilisers meaning our food not only tastes better but there is also less harm done to the environment.
North Aston Organics - are a Soil Association registered grower of organic vegetables and culinary herbs. All their produce is grown without fertilisers and pesticides making them a great source of fresh seasonal vegetables for us.
