We believe that changing the way we produce and distribute food is fundamental to solving the world’s most pressing social and ecological problems.
Est. in 2013, The Paddock is a family run fruit & veg box scheme, farm shop & smallholding focusing on organic & environmentally friendly local produce with ethics at the heart of everything we do.
The Paddock Farm Shop is a zero waste shop stocking a range of organic & local products, with minimal plastic packaging, a refill system for eco friendly household products and a plastic free pantry of organic dried foods which can be bought loose by weight.
The Paddock has been inspired by our family smallholding, named The Paddock, based on the beautiful Northumberland border.
From 1st Oct 22, we will be working in partnership with The Organic Pantry to operate our delivery service. The Organic Pantry are a certified organic, family run farm near Tadcaster, North Yorkshire. Together we can deliver a carefully selected range of ethical produce direct to your door.
At our smallholding, we grow as much as we can & supply free range eggs from our own happy hens, Laura's Layers. Everything is grown organically but we are not certified. Find our home grown produce in our farm shop.
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.
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.
