Finding a good breakfast can sometimes be difficult, but with so much local produce available on the doorsteps of many Isle of Wight cafes, theres no reason you shouldn’t be able to find a good fry-up on the Island.

Farmhouse Breakfast Week has been running since 2000 and is organised by the AHDB (Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board) aiming to raise awareness of the benefits of eating a healthy breakfast and showcase the variety of breakfast foods available here in the UK. Taking place during the last week of January, it’s a great excuse to look at your current breakfast choice and switch it up a bit.

Here on the Isle of Wight, we have access to some of the best breakfast staples going. You can try fresh eggs from any of our wonderful farm shops, or from many side-of-the-road honesty boxes that scatter the Island’s backroads.

Your request may not be processed.

For bacon and sausages try Farmer Jack’s, Briddlesford Lodge Farm Shop or Brownriggs, all have award-winning fair and all are super tasty. Milk on your cereal or in your cuppa has got to come from the herd of pedigree Guernsey cows – choose from whole, semi-skimmed or skimmed.

When it comes to cereals, don’t think that Kellog’s have the monopol – instead, treat yourself to Calbourne Water Mill’s own range of muesli, porridge oats and rolled oats, rolled using water power at the mill. If you are a cheese on toast fan, then the variety of cheese on offer at Briddlesford will make your day – choose from Cheddar, Caerphilly, Gouda and Halloumi.

Whatever you eat for breakfast, make it a good start to your day!

I have grown up by the water and can’t imagine not living near the sea. A bbq on the beach looking out across The Solent is a great way to end a day.
