Farmdrop: The ethical grocer
We’re pleased to be stocking Farmdrop in Bristol and Bath with our very own cold-press juices.
After a successful start in London, Farmdrop are now delivering in the South West across Bath and Bristol. The founder, Ben Pugh’s aim is to be able to provide buyers with fresher, better quality food whilst offering producers a better financial deal.
What is Farmdrop?
Farmdrop is an online marketplace that enables buyers to connect with farmers and producers in the fastest, most direct route to getting the freshest possible food. They offer a wide variety of food and drink including the freshest fruit and vegetables, an incredible selection of local meats as well as a deli section and much, much more.
They aim to cut out the middleman of the ‘supermarket’ to ensure every buyer receives the freshest produce. Once an order has been placed, the farmer then harvests and prepares their share of the order before being delivered to Farmdrop for distribution up to 19 hours later. It is this fast turnaround that makes Farmdrop such an attractive choice to buyers, as it can take supermarkets up to 5 days to complete this process.
Farmdrop also work closely with the producers ensuring that they are all treated fairly financially and receive the majority of the price. The network of local farmers, makers, growers and bakers is the heart of the Farmdrop community and without a close relationship to the producers Farmdrop would not be able to offer their amazing service.
