Sourcing and recycling

We’re proud that over 90% of the money we spend on catering suppliers is spent on businesses in Cornwall and Devon. We use only Cornish meat, dairy and eggs in our on-site cafes – as well as Cornish salad leaves when they are in season. Find out about our sourcing.

We recycle a lot of our food waste in a huge composter that transforms it into a nitrogen-rich soil enhancer for our gardens.

Behind the scenes

The Eden Kitchen is a welcoming place where you can enjoy freshly baked food and a drink, sharing long tables with other visitors. We designed the Eden Kitchen so that you can reconnect with food and see it prepared before you.

Eden’s co-founder Tim Smit says: ‘One of the greatest pleasures known to humankind is the smell of fresh bread. Bread is the staple – the staff of life. People have been growing grain, grinding flour and baking bread for over 5,000 years and the daily tradition of baking is still with us.’
