Established in 2013 by Laura Jayne Burlison, The Paddock is a family run organic fruit and veg box scheme and delivery service focusing on environmentally friendly, local produce, home and lifestyle options 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 of organic dried foods which can be bought loose by weight with no plastic packaging alongside a huge range of sustainable home and lifestyle options. We work with organic, independent farms both locally and from across the UK as well as a selection of small scale, local producers to bring you a carefully selected range of ethical produce. The Paddock has been inspired by our family smallholding, named The Paddock, based on the beautiful Northumberland border.

The Paddock is a family run, organic Fruit and Veg Box Scheme, covering Newcastle, Gateshead, some parts of County Durham and Northumberland (Tyne Valley & West Northumberland - Hexham to Allenheads). We aim to focus on organic, local and fair trade foods with an open and honest policy about how and where our food is produced, the miles it has travelled, the packaging it comes in and the impact it has on our environment.
