As January unfolds, many across the globe are diving into the annual tradition of "Veganuary."

Here in Holmfirth, we are fortunate to have local gems that align perfectly with the spirit of Veganuary—Andrews Greengrocers, Holme Coffee House, and Lou & Joe's Burgers. Join us as we explore the benefits of fresh, local produce and the variety of vegan options available in our charming town.

Veganuary: A Green Start to the Year

Veganuary, a portmanteau of "vegan" and "January," is a global movement that invites people to embrace a plant-based lifestyle for the first month of the year. It's an opportunity to explore the diverse world of plant-based foods, appreciate the environmental impact of our food choices, and discover the health benefits associated with a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
