About Down to Earth

How we Started

Down To Earth began as a small venture when Suzanne Bristow, with two small children, began an organic box scheme from her home, twenty years ago. Having been brought up on home grown food, Suzanne had an appreciation for organic fruit and vegetables, and so set about trying to make it more accessible for people, whilst also being able to work from home. She joined up with local growers and before long, her home was taken over by sacks of potatoes and carrots! A year down the road, a box customer set about encouraging Suzanne to open up a shop, and had found the perfect location! Suzanne never set out to start a shop, but it all just grew ‘organically’ as she went with the flow.

WHY we believe in ORGANIC?

Quite simply, choosing organic:

  • PROTECTS WILDLIFE AND BENEFITS THE ENVIRONMENT

  • ENSURES BETTER ANIMAL WELFARE

  • IMPROVES THE QUALITY AND FLAVOUR OF FOOD

  • PROHIBITS GM AND USES LESS PESTICIDES

  • RESPECTS OUR PLANET AND EVERYTHING ON IT

We are especially enthusiastic about seasonal produce and supporting local organic growers and producers.
