Burnley Food Links

Burnley Foodlinks is the company that supports Cropshare. We are promoting healthy local & organic food in the South Pennines

Burnley Food Links is a community enterprise working to develop a sense of community and food security through the provision of local food in the areas around Burnley in East Lancashire.

Why healthy? Healthy eating, particularly eating plenty of fruit and vegetables, can help make us fitter and happier and improve health in many different ways.

Why local? By consuming locally produced food, we can help the local economy while enjoying fresher produce. We help protect the environment by reducing the distance our food travels to reach us.

Why organic? Organic food does not use chemical fertilizers or pesticides in its production, making it tastier for you and better for the environment. Our "Climate friendly" food is produced to similar standards and is just as tasty.

We welcome people of all ages, cultures and backgrounds who are interested in growing, cooking, buying, selling, sharing or eating local and organic food.  Contact us.
