ABOUT US

BigBarn is a Community Interest Company committed to reversing the anti-social trend of the UK food industry.

A trend towards the growing mass production of food and control of the market by big business and retailers, giving farmers an average of only 9p in every £1 spent on food in the supermarket.

BigBarn's mission is to reverse this trend by reconnecting consumers with their local producers, direct, or through local retailers, and encourage local trade. Giving farmers a better deal and consumers fresher, cheaper, accountable food. Read more
