Judith Paris, founder of King’s Cross special enterprise group, Get More, has set up a Farm Drop in King’s Cross and will be hosting a taster evening this Friday.
Farm Drop is a new way of buying food produced within 100 miles of a given location. It was created by Ben Pugh who worked in finance and is interested in new economic models. It’s a simple idea – customers place orders via a central point run by a Farm Drop ‘keeper’. The orders are circulated to food producers who deliver to the Drop ready for collection. The aim is to cut down on food miles, packaging and waste.
And there’s more, Farm Drop producers sign up to a produce manifesto covering sustainability, standards, welfare and transparency.
To get your invitation to the King’s Cross Farm Drop taster evening this Friday, just join the Drop!
