Bowhouse Link launched in April 2020 to bridge the gap between our local community and the food and drink our landscapes processes.  Many of our local producers and farmers lost there whose sale contracts overnight due to Covid-19s lockdown leading to these businesses looking for other routes to market. Working with Open Food Network UK we created an online weekly market called Bowhouse Link to replace the ‘Link’ in our local food chain.

We have sent more than 1,200 orders out the door and delivered to customers as well as a further 1,600 boxes have been collected. That’s over 3200 orders going out the door since April 2020. Over this time we have listed more than 1000 produces from our local producers.

Our loyal customers have also donated over £3,000 to our East neuk Food Bank by shopping through the Link.

The Bowhouse team would like to thank the continued support of our customers and producers who have helped make Bowhouse Link a success.

Testimonials

I have been so completely delighted and impressed by Bowhouse over the past few months. The quality of the produce, the efficiency of the service, the ability to have a home delivery service.

I’m in the shielding category so life has been pretty ‘small’ since my treatment began. However, one thing that has cheered me up enormously is Bowhouse food! It’s just a complete joy to take delivery of such superb quality produce – I cannot overstate how impressed I am.

Thank you to everyone in the admin team – and to all the growers and producers. I look forward to supporting Bowhouse even more as we feel the full impact of Brexit in 2021.

Just to say that’s a nice mention from Murray in the Courier today.

And I wanted to say you saved my life when you started the Link – slots for Supermarket deliveries were as rare as hens teeth, I couldn’t get one at all, and because of my age and high blood pressure my family, who all live miles and miles away , didn’t want me going to the Co-op.

I have so appreciated the fresh Fruit and veg, the dairy produce and Barnett’s wonderful bread. Just made some delicious kale soup for my lunch and made strawberry jam last week.

So thank you all very much, I hope the delivery service is going to continue.

Best wishes

- Christine Keay
