My Farmdrop Experience

Hey Guys!

Hope you're all doing well and enjoying the autumnal awesomeness that is around us.

Today I am going to be talking about a really cool concept called Farmdrop that I've tried out and which basically makes getting tasty local food so much easier.

I've bought items such as meat or milk in the past from local farms in Hertfordshire and I have always had a really good experience, but when you don't have a car to physically go and pick things up it can be a pain.

This is where FarmDrop comes in and makes things easy peasy for you. 

They have an online marketplace, bursting with tonnes of different food options from a long list of local farmer and foodmakers that I could quite frankly browse all day. Once you have made your selection you simply select your delivery day and the order is prepared and packed, then delivered free of charge by their electric vans. 

I had my selections delivered to my office in London and the chilled food came in sturdy freezer bags with cool packs and insulation inside which kept everything refrigerated on the train journey home. They give you a delivery time slot so you know when to expect your delivery so you can either do what I did and get it delivered to work or your house if you live in London. 

Now I've covered how it works, I am guessing you want to see what I ordered!

Firstly let's look at the meat products, all from Park Farm. Here we have their beef burgers, delux pork sausages and chipolata sausages.

These were used to make awesome burgers and hot dogs for my family and they went down a real treat.

I also got 2 containers of fresh whole milk from Hinxden Farm Dairy for us to have on cereal or drink  on it's own. 

It was lovely and creamy and went amazingly with my morning cornflakes!

Lastly me and my sisters thought we'd spoil ourselves to a treat each from Comptoir Gourmand so we got two brownies and chocolate twist.

I had a brownie and it was to die for, deliciously moist and chocolately. It was well worth the syns and perfect as an occasional treat. 

As you can see from all my comments, I have been really happy with the service and the food was of a great quality. Everything you can see in the pictures cost a total of £25.05 including delivery which I think is pretty great and I was kindly given a discount code for £20 off my first order. 

I would definitely recommend checking out Farmdrop and you can sign up for an account on their website so you can start browsing. 

Thanks for reading my review, I'd love to hear what kinds of things you guys buy from local farms and what your experiences have been.

Speak soon.

Love Sally X
