Thinking

3rd April 2013

Moving into April marks FarmDrop’s 1 month anniversary (ya hear that Spring?! It’s April, do get a wriggle on).

The team at FarmDrop HQ are still busily working away setting up new drops, but we couldn’t be happier with the positive response our new way of buying food has had throughout the country.

Our local food movement is growing. And fast. Here’s the state of play after our first month:

  • Over 150 shoppers have come together to buy nearly 700 lovingly made goods direct from producers.
  • From Falmouth to Loch Glair, over 1000 people have registered to get their community shopping. (perhaps not Land’s End to John O’ Groats but near enough)
  • (and this is really exciting) 45 people have already approached us to open a drop in their area. 

Check out these photos from our latest Kilburn & QP FarmDrop. Awesome food, awesome producers, our very awesome drop organiser Caren and of course our awesome customers. 

Huge thanks to all the producers and the shoppers who’ve put their trust in us at such an early stage – we simply couldn’t have done it without you.

If you like the look of what our friends in NW6 are doing and want to start buying food with your local community, take a trip over to our website and register your details. We’d love to talk to you.
