Home Grown Here Logo

Grown in Cumbria.
Grown responsibly.
Grown together.

Home Grown Here is a co-operative of growers aspiring to build a better food system for Cumbria.  Our veg box scheme delivers our home grown fresh fruit & veg direct to your door year-round.  We feed hundreds of local families and supply local specialist retailers. By working together we’re making it easier to grow, distribute and eat Home Grown Here.

Making a difference

We believe that simple changes to how veg and fruit is grown, bought and consumed can transform our food system for the better and play a vital role in helping Cumbria reach and sustain carbon neutral beyond 2037.

There’s one really simple thing that everyone can do right now to play their part in tackling climate change … and that’s to join their local grower-led veg box scheme!

Working sustainably

We aim to grow food using methods that are kind to the environment, which reduce emissions, promote biodiversity and re-connect local people to the land on which their food is grown.  We’re seeking to shorten supply chains, keep waste and food miles to a minimum and use little, no or non-plastic packaging.  We’re also striving to use more renewable resources in the production, processing, transport and storage of our produce.
