The Dedham Vale Food Hub

The Dedham Vale Food Hub is a group of farmers and consumers who, together, have created a vision for the future of local, low carbon food. The Hub aims to provide food to local communities in order to meet the needs of tomorrow’s consumers today through offering local, seasonal healthy low carbon food; all of which is sourced in and around the Dedham Vale.
By switching to local, organic low carbon food, you and your family could save up to 75% of your yearly carbon budget for food! The Hub will operate to begin with as an online website delivering  fruit, vegetable, bread, meat and dairy to your door on a weekly basis. With the availability of visits to the farms in order for you and your family to see how and where your food has been produced.

In order to ensure that your food is as fresh as possible, our distribution spokes will deliver and sell into Ipswich, Sudbury, Manningtree, Colchester and Clacton. The boxes that you will be provided with will reflect the passing seasons from each farm to provide you with the best Mother Nature has to offer all year round! The Hub itself will aim to offer a fun, ethical and price sensitive shop and the opportunity to feed your families and friends in a cafe by Summer 2013.

If you would like to receive updates and be the first to know when our online store launches (Late Summer/ Early Autumn 2012), please send your details (name and email address) to the email address below and we will keep you informed with all the latest at the Hub;
