The Farmshop Review
Farmdrop was established in 2012 by Ben Pugh to “fix the food chain” and offer sustainably sourced products direct to the customer. The idea is to create an online farmers market where customers can buy their whole grocery shop almost directly from many different farms but with just in one basket with one delivery charge.
Customers get fresh, sustainable, ethically produced products and farmers keep more of the sales price which lets them invest more in less intensive farming methods that would price them out of the supermarket supply chain.
Where does Farmdrop produce come from?
Farmdrop has around 450 specialist suppliers and they try to source fresh and seasonal products from local farms within 150 miles of their Enfield base wherever possible.
Many products can’t be sourced locally and because Farmdrop aims to let you do your whole grocery shop with them, they supplement their local selection with carefully chosen products from around the world, primarily Europe.
How much does delivery cost?
Delivery is Free on orders of £60 or more. Delivery of orders less than £60 costs £6.99 fee Sun-Thu; and £9.99 Fri-Sat. Farmdrop has a minimum spend of£30.
Who owns Farmdrop?
