From Field To Plate

At Hjem we have spent a great deal of time and energy sourcing the best quality produce and ingredients Northumberland has to offer. And it's not just our food that's local, our tableware is also handmade by a local potter and our beer is brewed just down the road. We are incredibly proud of the suppliers, farmers and growers we work with and take a lot of satisfaction in supporting local businesses and workers. 

Take a look at our wonderful suppliers, growers and farmers below.
