SAVOUR THE TASTES OF VALLUM COUNTRY

Come to Vallum and enjoy the produce of land once trod by the Roman auxiliaries who lived in the shadow of Hadrian’s Wall. We farm dairy cattle and crops while our community of artisan growers, smokers, bakers, chefs and ice cream makers stock our Tea Room, Restaurant and Shop. Our local food is raised and grown by us and our Northumbrian neighbours, and depending on the time of day, you may see our producers at work and chefs from all over the country picking their own and placing their orders at the unique Vallum Kitchen Garden. Our programme of experiences and events is growing a pace, and visitors also enjoy our wildlife walks, the outdoor play paddock, and the fresh produce, deli goods, artisan breads and patisserie at David Kennedy’s shop. Vallum - home of the tastes of Hadrian's Wall country.

    Wow..this year has flown by, hasn’t it? August saw our very first wedding ceremony on site, which was lovely. We also popped down to River Cottage HQ for the Universal Cookery Food Festival which we will be hosting at Vallum next year. We came back so inspired and full of ideas. We were given a tour by the lovely Steve Lamb and we are hoping he will soon visit Vallum to see what we are doing up here.
    We’re now looking forward to an exciting Christmas Market on November 22, Burns Night with David Kennedy on January 24, and the launch of our gorgeous new events space Vallum Pavilion very early in the New Year. The Pavilion, which is a marquee-style structure, will host weddings, corporate events, Christmas parties, special occasions and more for up to 200 people. Exciting times ahead, and we hope you will join us and share them. Best Wishes,
    Team at Vallum xx

    We’ve scooped six prestigious Great Taste Awards, including a highest triple gold star, in the annual food industry ‘Oscars’!
    The triple gold star award was awarded to a Mediterranean vegetable pie handmade using Vallum produce by Murray Rhind at Vallum Bakery. The pie, which is sold at the Vallum Shop, was described by judges as “a work of vegetarian genius.” Great Taste is widely acknowledged as the UK’s most respected food accreditation scheme for artisan and specialist food producers.
    Of 10,000 entries, only 153 were awarded the Great Taste 3-star award, which puts Vallum Bakery’s Mediterranean vegetable pie in the top 1.5% of entries nationwide. Vallum Bakery’s spinach and Vallum fine fettle pie, which features Hadrian’s Wall Fine Fettle cheese handmade at the Little Dairy at Vallum, was awarded two gold stars for its “vibrant and moist flavour”, while Vallum Tea Room’s carrot cake was awarded two stars for its “great balance of cream to sponge”. Gold stars were also awarded to Vallum Bakery’s walnut bread, Vallum Tea Room’s savoury mince pie, and Vallum Tea Room’s minestrone with bacon soup. Congratulations to our Tea Room baker Gill Kemp, Tea Room manager Amy Clarke, and Vallum Bakery’s Murray Rhind.
