Marshford Organic Foods is helping to rebuild local food economies

We believe that changing the way we produce and distribute food is fundamental to solving the world’s most pressing social and ecological problems.

About Marshford Organic Foods

Marshford Organic Foods is a family run business now celebrating 36 years of providing North Devon with the tastiest, freshest organic food.

We, The Ebdon Family, moved to Marshford in 1985. Dave now has 40 years experience of growing whilst Vanessa is a keen cook and writes regular features and recipes. Our son Greg, who has grown up at Marshford, manages the shop.

We Care

  • about the food we grow and the products we stock – it’s wholesome, natural and delicious. We care about the people and the planet - properly produced food without added chemicals, hormones or genetic modification. We care about the community - supporting local produce and producers keeps more of the money in our local economy and builds stronger ties in the community.

What we offer - Certified organic foods; fresh, local produce to world cuisine. Our own seasonal vegetables, salads and herbs. Veg, fruit, meat and fish boxes in season. An online shop with home delivery service (see marshford.co.uk) Specialty products for different dietary needs and knowledgeable staff. Warm welcome in our shop at Northam five days a week. (closed Sundays and Mondays)

Fair prices for farmers and artisan food producers is vital

We pay our suppliers at least 50% of the retail value for any products we buy in, and when dealing with wholesalers, we check to make sure they pay fair prices to their growers.

The benefits of buying local

Local food supports local economies. Food grown in the local community supports local jobs and encourages variety in our diets. It also requires less transportation, so it's fresher and has a smaller environmental footprint.
