Hello and welcome to the farm shop on your doorstep which is ashareofthecrop. I'm Kevin Mc Garry and together with my wife Joanne and our children Matthew and Grace we have started this family business.
What is important to us
1 Local fresh seasonal food
2 Family business
3 Brighton community
4 Local farmers
5 Environmental and ethical practice
We believe that food is best when it is local, fresh and seasonal. We plan to deliver the best selection of these products, sourced in the south east. As we are based in Brighton we are focused on finding suppliers in Sussex. However in order to provide you with a wider variety of goods we have also found suppliers in Kent, Surrey and Hampshire. At some times of the year we will also need to source from the rest of the UK and in the winter most fruit is from the warmer parts of Europe but we will not go any further than that. If you are interested in where anything comes from then ask Kevin when he delivers..
We want to work with local people. We plan to use local suppliers for all our support services as well as our products.
Our heart is to connect the urban city of Brighton with the surrounding rural areas. In doing this we aim to create support between the communities represented there. Practically we plan to do this by supporting 2 Brighton charities with a proportion of our profits. We will give at least 5% of our profits to Kids Klub Brighton who run youth clubs in several areas of Brighton www.kidsklubbrighton.co.uk and at least another 5 % to off the fence who support marginalised groups in Brighton including vulnerable women and the homeless www.offthefence.org.uk We will also support another organisation www.friendsfirst.org.uk who provide housing for the homeles and have recently started running a farm to provide work and life experience for these marginalised people. We will be providing an outlet for their produce. So as you buy from us you will be putting back into your community. Please spend a few moments following the links to these, our favourite Brighton charities
We want to give our suppliers, the local farmers and tradesmen a fair deal for their hard work,
Our environmental policies mean we will try to use at least 95% locally sourced, reusable or recyclable packaging
