In My Back Yard is an online shop for local, ethical food and products from Devon, Dorset and Somerset. Shop local online then collect on Fridays from your nearest collection point or choose home delivery (restrictions apply).
Together we are a friendly network of independent, small-scale food producers, wholefood suppliers and residents working together to build a more resilient, nourishing and community-centred food system for the local area. Find out more about us and our long-term plans.
“When your weekly shop brings you actual joy you know it’s a good thing. Thank you, In My Back Yard.” Bex, Shute
“The produce is outstanding. Last week’s cucumber was so sweet it was almost a melon, and oh the herbs. Wonderful. Thanks so much for all the work you’re putting into IMBY. Great stuff.” Angela, Seaton
In My Back Yard producers and suppliers are committed to providing fresh, high quality food produced in harmony with our planet and its seasons. We grow and process food using methods that are as natural and sustainable as possible. All producers work to organic standards or beyond, some of us are certified organic.
Our passions and priorities are: Earth care, animal welfare, fair trade, low carbon distribution and knowledge-sharing. Our dream is to make healthy, local food accessible to everyone.
Our organisation is non-hierarchical and committed to creating a supportive, inclusive and regenerative culture. We use dynamic governance principles for effective group decision making, and to balance the needs and aspirations of all the members and the wider community.
