Find Local, Fresh, Wholesome Food

Your Local Food Network

Our mission is to promote sustainable production, trading and consumption of seasonal, wholesome and local food.

We celebrate the food producers in our own locality that labour to put nutritious, wholesome fare on our plates. We applaud their respectful working methods and strive to give them a louder voice in their communities. An important function of our online hub is to host the SIMPLE FOOD PLEDGE membership.

The SIMPLE FOOD PLEDGE is a symbol for small to medium sized food producers to highlight their commitment to growing or farming food:

  • without the addition of synthetic chemicals
  • using low impact, ethical and sustainable practices
  • for local consumption

The SIMPLE FOOD PLEDGE aims to support benign growing practices in farming that:

  • use organic standards as a guide
  • exercise responsible stewardship of soil, water and other natural resources
  • exercise ethical and humane animal husbandry
  • are economically viable
  • are ethical, transparent and honest in their operations
