Delivering fresh, local and ethically sourced food and drink to homes across Bristol and Somerset since 2002.

Empowering local people and supporting our economy

Revitalising Rural Economies

Supporting local, small-scale farms and independent food and drink producers across Somerset, sustaining existing employment and creating new jobs for local people.

Supporting Rural Communities

Providing a friendly home delivery service to our communities across Somerset, including complete meals made with locally sourced ingredients which supports our elders to continue living independently.

Promoting Health and Well-being

Creating the opportunity for therapeutic growing projects to raise funding through the sale of fresh produce, and bringing people together around food to build communities and reduce isolation.

Protecting the Natural Environment

Promoting ecological growing and farming methods that improve soil quality and increase biodiversity to protect the natural environment and mitigate the impact of climate change.

Help support our new initiative

Ready to Heat Meals Service

In partnership with Dartmoor Cottage Kitchen, we have introduced a range of affordable frozen Ready to Heat Meals made with fresh, local produce, which are the perfect easy dinner for busy people and those living alone.

Delivered by our friendly drivers, who will help unpack your groceries, you can now have a complete cooked dinner in just 3 minutes! We also provide all the other basics someone might need, including locally made bread, butter, milk, eggs and so much more

Help us get to our funding target

We know it is hard to live an independent life in rural communities, especially with the closure of village shops and cuts in public transport.

We are already supporting people to remain independent in their own homes by providing a range of complete ready-to-heat meals in addition to grocery essentials.  But, to expand this service, we need an additional delivery van so we can reach more people.

We are owned by our local community and you can help us raise the funds we need by becoming a shareholder in Somerset Local Food.  Just click the ‘Find Out More’ button which will take you to our share offer page.

Producer Spotlight

The Somerset Smokehouse

A family run smokehouse on the magical Somerset levels just beyond the Isle of Avalon. The artisan Scotch Eggs are made with smouldering smoked pork from Matt and Annabelle’s own hand-reared rare-breed pigs. The Oxford Sandy and Black pigs are bred and reared outdoors all year round on the small-holding in small groups of no more than 6 animals . This hardy rare-breed is grown slowly and naturally, without unnecessary additives or antibiotics, giving an excellent flavoured meat. Eggs are from local free-range hens
