Beetroot and halloumi salad

Chefs spend years building up contacts with suppliers to ensure they get a reliable, knock-em-dead product every time. Until now, the only way to get access to the best produce has been either to eat out or track down the suppliers yourself.

Farmison was created to save you the hard work. They offer a huge range of meat, veg and cheese from over 75 of Britain’s best independent suppliers, all in one place.  From Isle of Man Rare Breed Lamb Barnsley Chops to Middle Loin of Rare Breed Tamworth pork, it’s more varied that your local butcher, let alone your local supermarket.

You can mix and match from a huge variety of meat and cheese and order your veg box, too, all from one central website. P&P is free with orders over £50, or £4.95 otherwise. Order by 4pm, and Farmison place orders with the suppliers individually that evening. The next morning, the suppliers pack up their products, and send them to Farmison. They then put everything together and send it out to you by overnight courier.

Screengrab of website showing product pageThe site navigation is one of the best I’ve seen — you can quickly and easily see different types of cut, find cheese by country, type, milk or treatment (including a section on ‘pregnancy friendly’ cheeses) and decide what type of veg box you want. Each product page has a wealth of information ranging from breed and maturity (meat) to texture and taste notes (cheese). Although there isn’t a search facility yet, hopefully this will come in the near future!

Often small suppliers struggle to get their products known, yet at the same time, consumers are always hunting for the best. Farmison bridges the gap between the two. So next time you do an online shop, why not support small British producers and take a look at Farmison instead?
