My Local Farm Box source, pack and deliver a range of local, seasonal produce in a weekly, fortnightly, or monthly box to homes across the UK.
What makes us really unique is that we are operated by a network of partners who themselves source, pack and deliver the boxes to their customers each week.
Customers can choose fresh, local, seasonal boxes of fruit and vegetables and meat as well as artisan products produced locally. Each partner will offer slightly different produce due to our ethos of supporting local farmers, growers, and artisans.
The partner package fee varies depending on the size of the available geographical territories. The business model has been created to have very low start up costs making it accessible for individuals or existing businesses alike. Apart from the small start-up costs the only other requirements to get the business off the ground is a car or van, a small area to be able to store some produce and pack the boxes and your time.
My Local Farm Box is an innovative unique business model that was designed to have minimal costs for partners.
Partners divide their time between sourcing local products, packing and delivering the boxes, and marketing. Some partners will employ delivery drivers depending on the size of their business.
Sourcing the produce involves going out and meeting the farmers, growers, and artisans and negotiating good prices for their produce.
Packing and delivering involves planning the most efficient delivery routes to keep our carbon footprint down as well as costs.
Marketing involves local leaflet drops, social media marketing, door step knocking, and attending local farmer’s markets, events, and shows to raise their profile in their local community.
