Norwich FarmShare 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 Norwich FarmShare

Norwich FarmShare exists to provide local, fresh, ecologically grown foods to its members and we do this using ecological farming methods following organic principles.

Our vision is to support food systems that educate, connect and empower local communities to be healthier and more resilient, to be rooted to the land and to each other, and to experience a direct relationship with how our food is produced.

We do this by providing fruit and veg to our members every week, combining what we grow with produce we buy in from other local projects. We distribute these bags to our city Hub for members to collect, or for delivery by our cycle delivery team.

We have also offered volunteering, educational and social events to our members and to the wider public – including schools, youth groups and other disadvantaged groups - and we hope to do much more of this in the future once we're up and running on our new growing site.

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.

Reduced packaging

Being a member of Farmshare gives me the peace of mind that I'll always get fresh vegetables each week. It's also great to get vegetables that are organically grown, have low food-miles and don't come in acres of plastic packaging!
