Producer Spotlight

Somerset Local Food

LATEST – Whilst we are committed to supporting our existing customers, elders and those who are housebound and dependent on our home delivery service, we are now able to deliver to a limited number of new customers.

If you would like to receive deliveries of fresh local produce, please email us (customercare@somersetlocalfood.co.uk) and we will be in touch to let you know when we can register you.

Please remember to include your delivery postcode (we deliver to all BS, BA and TA postcode areas).

We really want to thank all of you for your fantastic support and understanding at this exceptional time.  We also want to recognise the commitment and care shown by our wonderful staff team of pickers, packers, checkers, drivers and tea-makers, as well as our extended family of producers, all of whom have gone the extra mile to ensure we are able to deliver fresh produce every week.

Everyone is working flat out to process orders, given the restrictions of social distancing, so please accept our sincere apologies if we can’t answer the phone or your emails as quickly as we would like.  If we make a mistake, please let us know straight away at customercare@somersetlocalfood.co.uk  Humans can put mistakes right quicker than computers!

Please stay safe.

Grow for Good

Somerset Local Food is a Community Benefit Society owned and financed by the local community. We are committed to promoting the abundance of beautiful local food produced and made by Somerset’s local producers.

We believe that as a community owned social enterprise, together with our community shareholders, we can grow a local food movement that makes good food accessible to everyone in Somerset, impacting on people’s health and wellbeing, maintaining the natural landscape and protecting the local environment to mitigate the effects of climate change.

Becoming a shareholder in Somerset Local Food means you also become a co-owner of the community owned benefit society and have a say in the future direction of the enterprise, including helping us to protect the natural environment for future generations as we create and strengthen local food systems that revitalise our local communities.

Help us get to our funding target

As a Community Benefit Society, it is important we have a broad base of customers, producers and staff that own shares and participate in the running of the business.

This latest share offer has so far raised £25,700 but we have more to do to reach our target of £50,000.  Your investment will help us to achieve our short term goals including:

  • Further develop the customer facing website so that it continues to meet expectations and improves our business processes
  • Launch new projects and services including working with local therapeutic growing projects which helps to diversify our supply chain whilst increasing our social impact, and creating a new dedicated service for elders in rural communities to help them remain living independently.
  • Find new ways to collaborate with others to address food poverty and to help people choose healthier eating options
