We source all of our ingredients, process equipment, packaging and consumables from local Lancashire companies or Family run businesses wherever possible.

Peter Merrett Boots and Bonework -
In Viking times metal was time-consuming to make and expensive, so the Vikings used bone and deerhorn (both readily available) to make many of the objects they needed such as belt buckles, hairpins, cloak pins, needles, spindle whorls, jewelry. The boots and shoes were usually made with one sole, so to protect the stitching they sewed them and turned them inside out. This is why they are commonly referred to as turn shoes today. All of these objects are made by hand and will be on sale at the Traders Market with Peter.
