The Isle of Man's farms are family run, with excellent traceability of produce from farm to fork.
Its clear, clean waters are mainly fished for King and Queen Scallops, crabs and lobsters plus langoustines. The Manx kipper industry dates back to the 1830s and kippers are still produced without the use of artificial dyes.
A single creamery produces milk, cream, buttermilk and award winning cheeses whilst locally produced pork, lamb and beef are widely available.
There are a large number of passionate producers on our small Island; explore our interactive directory, visit them at the Isle of Man Food & Drink Festival or get in touch if you'd like any further information.
