WHAT IS ‘BENVINGUT A PAGÈS TOT L’ANY ‘?
‘Benvingut a pagès tot l’any‘ means ‘Welcome to the countryside all year round’, and is a new initiative encouraging people to visit small-scale producers in Catalonia who are prepared to open the doors of their homes and share their work in the fields, pastures, farms or workshops. It is aimed at families, schools or couples, and is a way of showing where everything we eat comes from and who is behind the food. It represents an opportunity to visit the farms and fill your pantry by buying directly from the producer.
Local agri-food produce from our territories reaches kitchens and pantries via a very reduced supply chain, direct from Catalan producers. The term ‘proximity sales’ refers to the sale of agri-food products – whether from arable or livestock farming, or resulting from the processing or transformation of such raw ingredients – from producers to the end consumer, be it directly or via the intervention of an intermediary.
