Here is our new ‘About us’ video to explain why we exist, what we believe, do, and why.
Our ‘Mission’ in modern business language.
We are often told that there is too much on our home page, our banner does not say what we do, our map is complicated and our blogs too controversial. So we will be making some changes, and as you are part of our community (you can read more about this here), we welcome your feedback below or to firstname.lastname@example.org
Are we too late to help local producers and retailers?
Have we all become too addicted to the supermarket? Loyalty schemes, special offers, convenience, and perception of value?
What would make people change? Cost, convenience, quality, responsibility to community?
To encourage change: Our ‘£’ flag on icon shows hundreds of farm shops, butchers, etc on BigBarn are cheaper than the supermarket, do you believe that?
A video flag helps producers tell their story and show what is different and special about them.
People can make money from growing your own with our Crop for the Shop initiative.
Is this enough to encourage more people to switch to buying their weekly food needs locally? And leaving the other goods for the supermarket, once a month?
Your feedback is welcome. And please send this to your friends.
