To demonstrate our long term commitment to the LOCAL food industry BigBarn has become a Community Interest Company. To really understand the food industry and what we are are about, please read on.

What BigBarn is set up to do

BigBarn is 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. And where milk is cheaper than water in some shops!

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.

Today’s food industry is anti-social, resulting in:

BigBarn reverses this trend by promoting local food producers and independent retailers, as icons on post code specific maps accessed through the internet. It allows small, struggling, rural, producers to sell direct and get a better price. And consumers access to cheaper, fresh, seasonal, accountable, food. It also reduces food miles, increases food knowledge and education as well as increasing agricultural diversity and boosting local rural economies to make those communities more sustainable.

How will BigBarn benefit the community?
