Established in 2013 by Laura Jayne Burlison, The Paddock is a family run fruit & veg box scheme, farm shop & smallholding specialising in organic & environmentally friendly local produce, sustainable home & lifestyle options with ethics at the heart of everything we do. Laura & Mike run The Paddock together with help from Laura's Mam Denise, Dad Bob & Brother James, alongside local community members. Meet the team.
The Paddock Farm Shop is a zero waste shop stocking a range of organic & 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.
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.
At our smallholding, we grow as much as we can and supply free range eggs from our own happy hens, Laura's Layers. Everything is grown organically but we are not certified organic, however we are very proud to sell organic produce.
The Paddock holds a 5* food hygiene rating with Gateshead Council.

We run a weekly delivery service & work with drop sites in Durham, Tynemouth, Jesmond & Heaton (Newcastle). Our aim is 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.
