Producer Thinking

Celebrating Our Women Producers

5th March 2021

 

Here at Farmdrop, we are proud to work with some of the most innovative and exciting women-led brands. This International Women’s Day we wanted to celebrate our female-founded producers. 

The best part? These ladies are thriving in a variety of industries from farming to brewing, tearing down the glass celling one product at a time.

So, we thought we would introduce some of the amazing women behind the mind-blowing groceries you can find on our virtual shelves.

Lizzie at Just Kidding

Lizzie Dyer is the founder being Cotswold kid meat farm, Just Kidding. After growing up on a traditional mixed farm in Kenn, North Somerset – some might say that farming was in Lizzie’s blood. After a career switch in 2011 after completing an Agriculture Business Degree at the Royal Agricultural University, Lizzie decided to establish Just Kidding. 

Currently, there is no framework in the UK for Kid Meat production. So Lizzie and her partner, Jamie are creating an entirely new enterprise and developing their own systems that best suit the billies and their ethos.

Caroline at Sole of Discretion

Caroline Bennett founded a community-interest company made up of fishers committed to local fishing, Sole of Discretion. Shunning the practices of industrial fishing, the fishers only use their small boats and traditional methods such as hand lines and static nets. 

Caroline channels these small fishers from a quay in Plymouth, into a sustainable small-scale market, working with brands such as us here at Farmdrop to provide us with locally caught fish off of the British isles.

Lucy & Claire at &SISTERS

Daughter & Mother duo, Lucy & Clare founded conscious period product brand, &SISTERS which is not only kind to women’s bodies and the planet but also, help contribute to the fight against period property.

Drawing on their collective first-hand experience on the hardship that comes with the lack of access that comes to safe period products, they used their personal expertise, Claire’s entrepreneurial background and Lucy’s experience as a buyer to create products that breaks the mould.

Here is just a taste of the female-founded producers, to explore more head to our collection here.
