The Dartmoor Artisan Trail is a food and arts trail that champions Dartmoor's unique artisan culture to a global audience. 

Our aim is to inspire the public to visit and support the moor's producers and artists, and help ensure the survival of traditional skills and trades in the national park.

Launched in July 2017, the project has already attracted a great deal of  interest in the national media, with features in The Guardian, Lonely Planet and The Daily Telegraph, who named it one of the UK's best travel experiences of 2017. On Sunday, August 16th, it's being featured on Countryfile which, with nine million viewers, is the UK's most watched television programme.

This community project has had a fantastic start, but to survive, it needs the help of local business. We are offering the following sponsorship package:
