The Best of the Duchy of Cornwall
Every county has a number of artisan producers and specialist products which are unique to the area but Cornwall has the advantage of a fantastic natural larder on its doorstep with the abundant rural landscape and rolling ocean surrounding it.
A tradition of art and entrepreneurship is also rife in the Duchy and a heavy dose of encouragement and investment means there’s an enviable list of things that are made in Cornwall.
