Nottinghamshire County Council - Proud of our past, ambitious for our future

Where School Dinners Come From

Local Ingredients

In Nottinghamshire we are actively trying to reduce our carbon footprint and are proud to be going local with our school dinners, and here’s how:

  • Venison is from Thoresby Park, Sherwood Forest
  • Beef – grazed on the banks of the River Trent by Holme Farm in Rampton
  • Lamb from the Peak District
  • Turkey – farm assured, cage free from Lincs Turkey Ltd in Grainthorpe, Louth
  • Pork - local and rare breed from Hockerwood Farm in Upton
  • Eggs - free range from Fieldson Farm Eggs in Lincolnshire
  • Milk - fresh and local from Newfield Dairy in Hockerton
  • Vegetables - fresh and seasonal, grown locally where possible, from Country Fresh Foods in Sheffield

Other Commitments

  • Our fish carries the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) accreditation – ensuring it is sourced from sustainable stocks
  • We use organic bouillon from Major International in all our pasta, pie and casserole dishes
  • We use organic soya milk to cater for medical or dietary requirements
