About us

Somerset Local Food is a Community Benefit Society, owned and financed by the local community. We have been supporting local food growers and producers since 2002, delivering top quality local food to your door via our local food website

As a social enterprise, we offer a friendly and ethically sound service that helps the rural community thrive, whilst providing you with a wide choice of healthy, fresh, local food. We think it is important that:

  • You know where your food comes from
  • Packaging and food miles are minimised
  • Preference is given to quality food and drink produced in Somerset
  • You know how your food is produced and we will provide you with opportunities to meet our growers, farmers and producers
  • Items sourced from further afield will be from other ethical suppliers, and will often be Fairtrade and/or organic

The weekly order cycle closes at 9am on Tuesday morning, when we collate all of our customers’ orders and contact our supplier community to set in motion the gathering together of your order. Your order is then picked, boxed up and delivered to your door on Thursday or Friday of the same week, in time for the weekend. There is always a friendly and helpful voice at the end of a phone or you can contact us via the website, and you will get to know your regular delivery driver who will happily help you unpack your box at the time of delivery.
