Established in 2013 by Laura Jayne Burlison, The Paddock is an organic fruit and veg box scheme and delivery service focusing on environmentally friendly, local produce with ethics at the heart of everything we do. The Paddock Farm Shop is a zero waste shop stocking a range of organic and local products, with minimal plastic packaging, a refill system for eco friendly household products and a plastic free pantry. The Paddock has been inspired by our family smallholding, named The Paddock, based on the beautiful Northumberland border. Read Our Story.
The Paddock itself is my family's 6 acre smallholding which we have owned since 2002, based on the beautiful Northumberland/Gateshead border. This has provided the starting point for our small, family run business aiming 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 and our Farm Shop.

Our delivery service runs weekly on a Wednesday and Thursday depending upon your area. Orders must be received by Sunday evening for delivery the following Wednesday/Thursday. Payment is taken upon delivery (not upon placing the order) by either cash or direct bank transfer. Once you have placed your order, you will be contacted directly to confirm delivery. Please have a read through the "Frequently Asked Questions" section before placing an order for full info on the service including delivery areas and collection points!
