I don’t know if Cardigan is becoming the new California, but something is happening.
Take fforest, they grow all their own salad. They have over a dozen raised beds. They have their own polytunnel. They even raise their own pigs. Our pub, The 25 Mile, sources its main ingredients from within a 25-mile radius. Not always easy. But, always worth it.
But maybe the most significant thing is the local community getting together to buy a building to hold the local growers and producers market. They all bought shares. They all have a stake in its success. And they all go there to buy the best of local. And it’s really taken off.
I don’t know what all this means, but something is happening down here.
