Shop

Welcome to the Food Float local area Thursday home delivery service. We are taking orders for Thursday 14 July until 10.00am on Wednesday 13.

We hope you’ll enjoy browsing in our online shop below which throughout the year offers eggs, milk, cream, coffee, bread, cake and pastries, bacon, sausages and ham, cheese, pasta, rice, oats and muesli, seeds and nuts, muesli bars, butter, honey, and chutneys, jams and marmalades – and not forgetting, of course, our large and small seasonal veg boxes. At appropriate times of the year we add to the shop items such as local chicken, asparagus, damsons, medlars, new potatoes and strawberries, and hampers, hot cross buns and mince pies.

Please click here for information about meat and poultry from Canfields, Etherley, and Hill House Farms, and Tim McEntire.

There is no delivery charge, just an £11 minimum order. If you’d prefer to place your order by email rather than use the online shop, or would like to discuss setting up a regular or semi-regular order, you can do so by contacting Maddie at foodfloat.sales@gmail.com.

Our preferred method of payment is by online transfer (after you’ve placed your order you’ll receive an automated ‘order confirmation’ email containing our bank account and sort code details) though we are happy to accept cheques and cash. Payment can also be made, including by card, at the Stall. We would be grateful if accounts could be settled within a week of delivery.

Thank you for supporting our network of local producers and growers. 30+ at last count!

Product Details

The Hubbard chicks are kept indoors for four weeks, under brooders for warmth, and then moved outside, into a large enclosure on wheels for protection from predators. The flock is in a field close to Tim's herd of Gloucester Old Spot pedigree pigs. Jacqui moves the enclosure to fresh pasture within the field twice a day. Bugs, grasses and wild flowers of the pasture supplement the pellet rations, and when the birds reach their later stages of growth Jacqui adds a cocktail of fresh oregano, sage, thyme and parsley to the feed. The birds build a natural immunity from the ground so there is no need for antibiotics. Jacqui, like our other suppliers, is passionate about what she is doing, and Food Float is delighted to support her venture.
