Food Float provides local, fresh food to people in and around Dorking. With a stall on Fridays and Saturdays on Dorking High Street and doorstep deliveries to restaurants and homes, we aim to support local producers. You can order a delivery on this website or find out more about what we do.

You can order local organic beef now for delivery on October 27 or November 3. Canfields Farm near Rudgwick sits in the most beautiful countryside and rears Aberdeen Angus and Limousin beef cattle. Certified as an Organic Farm and checked annually, Erica and her son Tim offer fresh beef of the highest quality, around ten times a year.
The meat is hung for three weeks and expertly processed by a local butcher. You can see prices and order here http://foodfloat.org/organic-beef/
We’re also now supplying veg from HM Prison at Send. This women’s prison has a kitchen garden, where the inmates work, producing fruit and veg for its own catering and now for Food Float. This is part of The Clink charity’s work which helps rehabilitate offenders through practical training.
We supply a range of food items including bread, honey and preserves, eggs, cakes, vegetables, cheese, poultry and sausages. All our products are sourced as locally as possible – mostly from within a 20 miles radius of your High Street. The big advantage of local food is that it’s fresh, it cuts carbon emissions and we know where it comes from.
Our pricing policy: Food Float compares prices with the local supermarkets and aims to be competitive where possible. We want to provide an alternative to supermarket shopping. Where costs are higher it reflects the higher production costs of small scale producers and higher welfare and environmental standards.
