Check out our growing list of local produce partners

As a small business owner, I am passionate about supporting other small businesses, which is why I am on the constant look-out for new fabulous producers to add to my growing list we support here at Hollychocs HQ.

In my award-winning chocolate collection, we use Potterne Honey in our Gold award-winning Honey & Passionfruit chocolates, as well as in our golden crunchy milk honeycomb and dark honeycomb. The flavour is simply bee-utiful!

It was such fun opening our Beanery Café in summer 2023 as it meant Sam & I got to do some fantastic tastings sessions at both Dusty Ape Coffee Roasters in Hilperton and Tea Inc. in Devizes to find our tea and coffee providers. Our customers rave about our teas and coffees so we definitely got it right from the start!

Whilst we opened initially as a sweet treat place, we quickly found our customers wanted some savoury options. So we introduced our 'Sam'whiches' - daily deli sandwiches dreamed up by my husband Sam, along with some savoury waffle options. He loves using the delicious ham from award-winning Padfield Porkies from just down the road, fresh baked bread from craft bakers The Little Bakehouse in Devizes, and tasty smoked bacon from next door in the Poulshot Lodge Farm Shop. Customers love popping into the farm shop to take some bacon and ham home to enjoy too! 

Whilst doing field research on local farm shops (tough job we know!), we came across award-winning gelato producer Baboo Gelato. When we tasted it we couldn't wait to add it to the café, and their doggy yum yum ice cream in banana & peanut butter is getting 4 paws up from all our four-legged customers. 

And I'm thrilled to announce our newest local provider for cream and butter -  Ivy House Farm Dairy, who are renowned for their organic Jersey milk products from their family farm in the West Country. It will be used in some of our award-winning chocolates, and also in our baked goodies in the Beanery Café.

The majority of our packaging is also sourced locally from Kennet Print and Corsham Print

Thanks to everyone who loves supporting local!
