The Paddock itself is my 6 acre smallholding based on the beautiful Northumberland/Gateshead border, which has provided the starting point for my business which aims to bring local, fresh, seasonal, homegrown, homemade and organically sourced (wherever possible) food to the doors of local people throughout Gateshead, Newcastle, County Durham and Northumberland through a delivery service!
A selection of set price, fresh, seasonal vegetable boxes are available ranging in price from £7.50 to £20 as well as a good range of individually priced fruit and vegetables, giving you the flexibility to create your own box. No commitment is needed, with one off, weekly, monthly and fortnightly options available. We aim to produce what we can at The Paddock, but what we can't we source locally and organically. All our fruit and veg is grown free from chemicals and is fully traceable back to the producer!
Fresh free range eggs are also available, all laid within 48 hours of delivery by Laura's Layers, the 50 wonderfully entertaining chickens at The Paddock!
We have formed some excellent partnerships with local producers throughout Northumberland and further afield who have kindly agreed to share their wonderfully tasty produce with The Paddock including fresh homemade bread from Rise Bakery in Stocksfield, baked with organic flour milled in Stamfordham, a selection of handmade Northumberland Cheeses made with local milk on the Blagdon Estate by the Northumberland Cheese Company, Cumbrian Honey from beekeeper Helen Griggs (Nook Farm, Newcastleton), Light Flower Pure Honey and Soft Set Honey from beekeepers Julie and Mike McCartney who produce this beautiful honey from the 9 hives on their allotment in Billingham, Teeside, handmade and artisan jams and chutneys from J.R. Jams (Newcastle), an exciting range of delicious, handmade chutneys, salad dressings, marinades and balsamic vinegars from Wildon Grange (Barnard Castle) and a range of organic dried goods!
The ethos of The Paddock centres around a celebration of local, seasonal food produced in a sustainable and environmentally friendly manner. The Paddock hopes to enable you to enjoy the great taste of fresh, homegrown, free range and organically sourced produce delivered direct to your door. Food that tastes the way it should - the way it used to! There is no delivery charge, just a minimum order spend of only £7.50! We are very lucky to have been supported by The Prince's Trust Explore Enterprise Programme and the Regional Growth Fund!
