An eco-friendly commercial development in Long Sutton is to be home to a husband and wife-run deli with menus full of locally sourced foods.

Kirsty and Anthony Bowen have created the Three Counties Deli and Coffee Shop, which is the latest business to take up a unit in the Carbon Neutral Business Zone (CaNeBuZo), in Hoddins Way.

We’ll have a selection of items from small producers and artisan foods.

They plan to sell products sourced as locally as possible including items from the Marsh Pig Norfolk Charcuterie and the Rutland Charcuterie, alongside speciality cheeses, home-smoked and cured bacon, homemade pies and sausage rolls and cakes.

Mrs Bowen said: “We’re based in Lincolnshire but very close to the border with Norfolk and Cambridgeshire, hence the name.

“We’ll have a selection of items from small producers and artisan foods – things that you can’t get in the supermarkets, and as far as possible, items produced locally.

“We hope the coffee shop will complement the existing businesses.”

The couple have run a food business Man Made Food – selling homemade pastries and pies at markets and catering outside events – for three years.

The official opening will be on Saturday, noon to 3pm.

Canebuzo has seven units designed to retain heat and use new technology to preserve natural resources and generate energy from natural sources. They have a below-zero carbon footprint and are among the UK’s greenest commercial buildings.
