Eating healthy balanced meals is more important than ever but finding a delivery slot with your local supermarket can be a real pain! Here at Godminster we love using independent box schemes and websites to shop locally and ethically wherever possible. Here are a few of our favourites featuring the very highest quality produce from across the UK…
Food on the Table
This brand new service is taking non-organic food that was destined for the finest restaurants and bringing it to your door to help as many people as they can during these uncertain times. At present there are three boxes: a fruit and veg box, a fruit box and a pantry box. More boxes will be introduced soon, so keep checking back!
We’re also delighted to be a part of Abel & Cole’s cheese offering and they’re one of the most steadfast customers to have supported Godminster during our 20 year journey.
Wellocks at Home
Our friends at Wellocks have always traditionally supplied top restaurants and hotels. Wellocks, which usually supplies ingredients to Michelin-star restaurants, has started selling grocery boxes directly to consumers. There’s a whole range of boxes, including veg, salad, baking, pantry and dairy boxes, plus an essentials list of groceries too. There’s also a deli box which includes some delicious Godminster Oak Smoked Cheddar too!
Milk & More
Bring a little #DoorstepMagic to your home with Milk & More, who are passionate about delivering the best of small artisan producers to the nation’s doorstep. We’re delighted to be their ‘Cheese Lover’s Favourite‘ too!
The team at Riverford love to ‘live life on the veg’. Their box deliveries have been a UK staple for years and although they aren’t currently offering cheese in their boxes due to the Covid-19 pandemic you can still order plenty of amazing fresh produce to your doorstep.
Our local pick… Kimber’s Farm Shop
The Kimber family have been farming outside Bruton, Somerset (where Godminster is based) for over 300 years. If you’re local to Bruton then make sure you check out the Kimber’s Farm Shop services, which include a ‘click and collect’ or delivery to a 10 mile radius of the farm shop. They offer their own meat and milk, plus local suppliers of dry goods, veg, cider, beer, preserves, honey, and cakes, supplemented by citrus fruit, wine and more!
Our ‘treat yourself’ pick… the Hawkins Bros Oastbrook Hamper
This special edition hamper has been put together by Hawkins Bros – English wine merchant specialists – to feature the very finest in seasonal asparagus and English sparkline wine, alongside a Godminster cheese. The Oastbrook Hamper is available to order from their website and is being feature on Simon Mayo’s Radio Scala show with broadacaster, Great Taste judge, and all-round foodie hero Nigel Barden. Tune in on Saturday 16th May at 11.30 to hear more about it!

Make sure you check your local COVID-19 support listings to see what’s local to you in your area and let us know your favourites!
