Below are just some of the wonderful suppliers we use for everything from food to tools, we often get asked ‘where do you get …?’ or ‘who do you use for …?’ so we hope this will be a useful resource!
ANOTHER COFFEE – Our rather lovely coffee importer, grinder and supplier is just up on Dunkeswell Airfield, but they have an easy-to-use website and mail order everything from chocolate coated coffee beans to expresso machines, friendly service, great prices and lovely range.
SUMA – Whatever we cant buy direct from local suppliers we buy from Suma. From loo roll to ground almonds and just about everything else you can imagine. Why not start your own local buying group? Its only £250 minimum order and you dont have to buy bulk or even full cases of things. Great value and quality.
SHIRES ELECTRICALS – Installed our Photovoltaic Panels, very pleased, quality job and a local family business.
SOL ELECTRICALS – Installed our EV car charger, again a local company – free through the government scheme.
GOOD ENERGY – All the electricity used at The Old Kennels is made by our own panels or from 100% renewable sources.
TRIODOS BANK & ECOLOGY BUILDING SOCIETY – Both put the planet and its people before profits, thats why we use them. But they are also both amazing to deal with, really customer service orientated. I can honestly say The Old Kennels wouldnt be running today if it wasnt for The Ecology sharing our vision all those years ago!
