Go Field Fresh for Zero Food Miles 

Posted on by in

Choosing locally grown produce is an easy way to cut your carbon footprint and at this time of year there is an abundance of seasonal veg to choose from.

We take a look at what one organic farm shop in North East Somerset are growing… 

Welcome to Home Farm, 400 acres of lush Somerset farm land and home to Farrington’s Farm Shop. Behind the Farm Shop and Café is a Soil Association approved farm that grows some of the finest organic produce in the region. Grown in a beautiful Grade I soil consisting of a deep red sandstone loam, their organic veg is packed full of flavour and highly sought after. 

Staying true to their roots as a ‘proper’ farm shop, Farrington‘s hand-pick their organic veg from the fields in the morning and have it on their Farm Shop shelves by lunch time. Zero food miles means fresher food for you AND a win for the planet! Look out for the Farrington’s signature cow-print  packaging and the ‘homegrown’ labels in store. 

What’s growing now? 

Eating seasonally is the perfect way to reduce the impact of your food choices on the environment, plus it always tastes far better! Over the summer months a wide range of organic veg will travel the very short distance from the fields at Ruett to the shop shelves. This month their organic range includes*: 

  • Courgettes 
  • Flat Leaf and Curly Kale 
  • Calabrese Broad and Runner Beans 
  • Spring Onions Bunched Carrots 
  • Cabbages 
  • Leeks 
  • Broccoli 
  • Red and Golden Beetroot
