The term ‘producer’ refers to the broad spectrum of growers who are somewhere in between the backyard gardener, and the full scale commercial farmer. A grower can specialise in one or two crops or have a full range – there is no minimum size of land or variety of produce. Producers can even be a group of neighbours pitching in together and growing on a shared plot.
We aim to assist growers overcome some of the obstacles that small scale producers face, such as business set up. We also connect you with other growers for information and inspiration.
Finally, we promise to pay a fair market price for all goods.
