Meet our local suppliers
Here at the Chough, we pride ourselves on using the finest quality ingredients in our products and do our utmost to source these from local suppliers.
We thought it would be nice to showcase some of these suppliers, so that you can see exactly where the ingredients that we use in our pasties and other products come from.
We know that food provenance is important to our customers and it’s equally important to us too, to use the freshest, highest quality local ingredients that we can.

Tamblyns finest meats
Situated amongst the rolling hills of South East Cornwall, and farming there since their grandfather bought the farm in 1943, Tamblyns grow wheat, barley and oats to feed their cattle and pigs.
They started to make sausages for friends and family, and after some great feedback, decided to start selling them further afield.
Here at Choughs we are proud to source all our sausage meat for our sausage rolls from Tamblyns and I’m sure you can agree that they are absolutely delicious.
The Cornish Cheese Company
Cornish Blue has been produced on the Stansfield’s farm on Bodmin Moor since 2001.
Being just on the edge of Bodmin Moor, Knowle Farm is ideally placed for cheesemaking, as the very moist climate makes for good pasture. This is important for the local milk that goes into the cheese.
We are proud to use award winning Cornish blue cheese from the Cornish Cheese Company in our delicious steak and blue cheese pasties
In 1890, Eliza Jane Rodda started making Cornish clotted cream in her farmhouse kitchen in the heart of Cornwall. Now in the fifth generation of the family business, Rodda’s still craft their Cornish Clotted Cream in the very same way,
They source all their milk from farms within Cornwall. All the farms are certified by the Red Tractor Farm Assurance Dairy.
All our cream teas include Rodda’s clotted cream and we use Roddas milk in our quiche, teas & coffees and various other products.
Boddingtons was established in Mevagissey, Cornwall in the 1940’s as a market garden and now have 70 years of experience in soft fruit and over 20 years experience in preserves.

Boddington’s Berries have become strawberry specialists, choosing the best suited varieties of strawberry to suit our cool maritime climate here in Cornwall. Their plants are all certified and most are purchased from Norfolk in the UK. No artificial additives or preservatives are added to their preserves, giving a wonderfully high quality product that has earnt them ‘Taste of the West’ accolades.
