Producer Spotlight

Somerset Local Food

LATEST – We are now accepting registrations and orders from new customers whilst continuing to support our existing customers, elders and those who are housebound.

We deliver to all addresses in the BA and TA postcode areas plus most BS postcode areas (essentially those postcodes south of the M4).

We have to manage the total number of orders we can fulfil each week to ensure the health and well-being of our warehouse team.  Orders can only be placed from 10:30 am each Sunday until all the delivery slots have been filled, or by 09:30 am on Monday morning, whichever comes sooner.  After that we place all the orders with our suppliers for delivery to the warehouse on Tuesday and Wednesday. Orders are picked, checked, packed and ice packs are added when needed.  They are delivered to your home on Thursday or Friday to ensure the produce remains as fresh as possible.

Change or additions to existing orders can be made until 09.00 on Monday morning. Contact customercare@somerserlocalfood.co.uk if you would like to update your order or add something you had forgotten.

If the site is open for orders,  you will see a ‘count-down’ clock at the top of your screen. 

Many of our customers say how much they appreciate receiving a friendly text reminder every Sunday morning as our website re-opens. If you’d like a free SMS notification, simply email us at  customercare@somersetlocalfood.co.uk and ask for your mobile number to be added. If you don’t have a mobile number, a voice message reminder can be sent to your landline number.  You can unsubscribe from this service at any time.

Our delivery routes are optimised to reduce our vans’ carbon footprints and vary from week to week depending on the locations of the orders we receive. You will always receive your order on the day your town or village is listed (smaller communities en route are not always listed).  Please note that all Bristol addresses are listed by their postcode area. Customers living in communities or postcode areas at the beginning of the list will receive their order from us in the morning, those in the middle by early to mid-afternoon and those at the end of the delivery round will arrive by mid to late afternoon.

Become a co-owner of your community owned local food delivery service

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.

We currently have an open membership share offer to raise funds for the installation of a mezzanine level in our warehouse.  This will give us a mess-room for the staff to have their breaks and will free up space at ground floor level to make working easier and enable us to hold more product lines.  Further details can be found here.

We also welcome smaller donations  which can be added to your order – here’s a link

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
