Based within Bamford in the Hope Valley, the Countryfile team were hosted by The Angler’s Rest, the first pub in Derbyshire to be purchased and owned collectively by the local community.
The pub is also a SaucedHere.co.uk click & collect station, making it a ‘pub that is most definitely the hub’.
From Bamford, the Countryfile presenters, Anita Rani and Sean Fletcher, were taken out into the hills.
Anita joined an organised walk with a local outdoor pursuit’s expert, while guiding Sean was Luke Osborne, from SaucedHere.co.uk, on a visit to a select few of the 40 Peak District farmers SaucedHere.co.uk works with.

Luke introduced Sean to Brock and Morten, based in Ashford-in-the-Water.
Owned by the Brocklehurst family the farm takes a sustainable approach to their farming and food production, creating a unique Peak District cold pressed rapeseed oil with minimal wastage and low food miles.
Kate Brocklehurst explained: “We press our rapeseed nice and slowly after it is dried naturally.
The left-over seed husks are then fed to our cattle eliminating waste.”
At Caudwell’s Mill in Rowsley Luke gave Sean the chance to be the first to see flour being milled by a recently renovated water-powered roller flour mill that was built in 1874 and hadn’t been used for 40 years.
Nathan Corns, the mill manager, said: “It was a pleasure to see Sean be involved in the resurrection of such an important part of milling history right here in the heart of Derbyshire.”
The day culminated in Anita, Sean and Luke returning to the Angler’s Rest to meet Derbyshire-born sisters Nilam Wright and Veena Josh from Curry On Cooking who gave the team a cookery masterclass in Indian bread making using the flour and oil collected earlier that day.
Luke said: “When I opened SaucedHere.co.uk I was blown away by the quality of the food and drink available right on our doorstep and making it easier for people to access it gives me a real buzz.
“The Peak District should be recognised as the capital of food and drink in the UK.”
