FARM: and FARM:shop are devised by Something & Son LLP, an eco-social design practice founded by Andrew Merritt, Paul Smyth and Sam Henderson.
We combine art, engineering and business know-how to find creative ways to improve the world around us.
We launched FARM: in 2010 to bring farming into the city. We are developing a network of shops and grow sites across the UK. FARM:shop Dalston is the start of this initiative.
Our aims are to:
1) To excite and inspire city dwellers to grow their own food, fabric and medicine and make an income doing this.
2) To create direct links between farms in the countryside with communities in cities
3) To grow food commercially via a network of FARM:'s across cities and retail this food at FARM:shop's
