Farmers give restaurant a local flavor

Farmers Weekly - UK

'Farmers in the Peak District have been treated to a taste of their own produce by a new restaurant in Derby called Soul.

It has been set up by Robin Mitchell on the back of a successful delicatessen in the city, with the aim of showcasing fresh, locally sourced food.

The restaurant opened with a taster for its farmer suppliers, including beef producer Arthur Gee, who specialises in rearing and finishing traditional grass-fed cattle such as Dexter and Lincoln Red breeds.

"Soul is the perfect customer because it appreciates my beef - I'm not looking to sell to someone who just wants a cheap joint," said Mr Gee.

"It's also a very good shop window for me."

He farms just 30 miles away, near Buxton.'
