Local Suppliers

We are proud to already be working with a number of local producers and suppliers for our shops and catering outlets. We also use fresh produce from the Estate, including Natural Mineral Water, Lavender and Honey.

We aim to work closely with more local producers and craftspeople, as part of our commitment to triple Blenheim’s contribution to the local economy over the next 10 years.

We want to share the best of what Oxfordshire and the surrounding area has to offer. We are committed to supporting local suppliers, where possible we will procure goods, products and services that are sourced locally without compromising on cost or quality, 80% of all food sold on site comes from within a 50-mile radius and more than 60% of our total spend is done within 20 miles of the Estate.
