Recycling and Environmental
At Post Office House, we are avid supporters of shopping locally and keen to be as environmentally friendly where possible to reduce food mileage and waste. This also helps our small, independent businesses and local economy to thrive. This applies also to recycling; our paper, bottles, tins, cardboard and garden waste are recycled. We also re-use newspapers – for lighting our two stoves and also very useful for stuffing wet walking boots!
All our marmalade, jams and muesli are homemade on the premises. The blackberries and raspberries used to make our jams are very local! Blackberries are hand-picked by ourselves, from the wild bushes in and around Belford in the Autumn season and raspberries are handpicked by us in the summer months from a local farm.
