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 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

Edcombe Organic Farm

Edcombe Organic Farm is in the village of Rodney Stoke, situated between Wells and Cheddar. The farm has been certified organic by the Soil Association for eleven years and Judy Pearce has been growing vegetables there that entire time! Judy grows a wide variety of organic vegetables on two and a half acres of red clay soil at the foot of the Mendips over looking the Somerset levels

Most of the veg is for a share scheme where local people come to the farm once a week and collect the veg which has just been harvested. They have some other outlets including farmers markets, local pubs and, of course, online at Somerset Local Food.

“We wanted to have a closer relationship with our customers so we started the share scheme to provide a reliable market for the vegetables. It is satisfying to provide a weekly supply of vegetables to local people whose faces we recognise.”
