Join-the-New-Forest-Marque

THE NEW FOREST MARQUE

The New Forest Marque is a local food and produce scheme set up to champion businesses who pride themselves on producing and providing food, drinks and craft with clearly defined New Forest provenance.

The New Forest Marque also works to protect, encourage, and promote traditional and unique farming traditions and practices, which help to fashion the iconic and beautiful landscape and environment found in the New Forest.

A well-recognised logo clearly identifies items that have been grown, reared, caught,  brewed, produced, or processed in the New Forest.

Whether you’re a Commoner, a Primary Producer, a Processer or you offer local produce to your customers, you can apply to join the New Forest Marque.
