IF you're a fan of homegrown produce then get ready for a treat.

Among the items being cooked up by bakers at the new Whole Foods Market, off Tewkesbury Road, is the Fifteen Mile Apple Pie.

With apples from Hayles Fruit Farm, in Winchcombe, flour from Shipton Mill, and honey from Stancombe Beech Farm in Bisley, every one of the pie's ingredients come from within a 15-mile radius of the store.

Bosses at the shop, which is set to open for business next Wednesday, said the product embodied their commitment to sourcing produce from within Gloucestershire.

"Offering local produce is a really important part of what we're all about," said a spokesman for the store. "We will be stocking some 330 products which come from Gloucestershire and around 50 from Cheltenham alone.

"The 15-mile pie really encapsulates that ethos.

"The staff have all tried it and can confirm that it tastes amazing too."

The store opening will take place at 9am on Wednesday.

    Is honey the only sweetener in the pie or is there sugar cane in it and from what plantation does it come from, or are they using locally produced sugar beet, and if so, where from?
