BigBarn’s mission is to build communities around food and help businesses like you become the centre of your local food community.
After 20 years of trading we have 9,000 icons including schools, shops, farmers, pubs, markets, butchers and producers.

BigBarn in brief
BigBarn has been trading for 19 years and gets thousands of visitors per day, to the Local Food map via bigbarn.co.uk and partners promoting the map
Our strategy is to:
• Build the definitive database of local producers and retailers
• Put them all on a map and give each a password to add and edit their details
• Get the BigBarn data on as many other websites as possible, paying each site a commission on trade and advertising
• Provide initiatives to encourage consumers to change from the supermarkets to buying local, including; BigBarn MarketPlace, cheaper than the supermarkets, ‘Crop for the Shop’ and KIS Cookery.
The BigBarn Food Map including BigBarn MarketPlace is now on 90+ affiliate partner websites with more joining every week as the demand for better, fresher local food & drink grows.
The Premium rate is the equivalent of £2.50 per week. You only need to get one new regular customer through BigBarn per year to more than recovered this fee.
Our partners earn a commission from sales through BigBarn MarketPlace, so if you have an online shop it pays them to promote you.
