Welcome to LoopyFood.net! Would you like to find LOCAL ORGANIC, BIODYNAMIC or similar FOOD? Or maybe find accommodation and events with organic food? How about foodie groups and projects – and more?! There are FREE MARKETING RESOURCES for food producers/retailers. For those who like to try and change their world a little for the better there is a section for Food-Related Campaigns. You can find links to all of this through the main menu at the top of all pages, but take a moment to read this page and you will soon know what it is all about and be able to find your way around the website with ease!

If You Value Good Clean Food

If you value Organic, Biodynamic and similar food then this is the place for you. You can find local producers (including veg boxes & foods hubs), retailers (and markets) and purveyors (from cafés and pubs to top-end restaurants). Find all this near home or on your travels. You can also find accommodation and events where such food is available. How about food-related projects, groups and many other things? It’s all there! Go straight to the directory to start exploring if you like, but it is recommended that you first read the Search Tips set out below – or go to the more detailed instructions on searching the directory. Don’t forget to mention LoopyFood.net to your favourite supplier/outlet of Organic or Biodynamic food – or event organiser etc. – and recommend that they get a listing to get ‘put on the map’ (see below)!

If you are a PRODUCER, RETAILER, EATERY, ACCOMMODATION or other food-related BUSINESS

Organic food listings at LoopyFood.net

Full listings include a lot of information – all listings can provide detailed directions

 

Is your enterprise concerned with Organic, Biodynamic or similar food (or open-pollinated seeds)? You can add a basic business listing FREE! This puts you on the map. FULL listings are FREE for organic food producers! For other organic enterprises (e.g., accommodation, places to eat/drink), full/premium business listings are very cheap (typically £15/year – about $20/€17). Full listings allow you to upload detailed descriptions, photos/images, telephone numbers, website and email links, as well as lots of other information that potential customers can use to find you through custom searches. For instance, customers can search for raw milk, accommodation without (or with) wifi, or vegetarian restaurants. Full/Premium listings also include free web-traffic analysis – look to the right sidebar for an example! There are also FREE posters available to help advertise/promote Organic and Biodynamic food businesses, projects, events etc.

Are you a small operator? Maybe you are not confident about setting up your own website? Fuller LoopyFood.net listings allow your business to have a dedicated web-presence (mini-website) with minimal work and expense! Just set up your listing and on your publicity/posters/emails tell people to visit LoopyFood.net and type the name of your business into the site-wide search. Alternatively, you can include the link address to reach your listing – or, for a reasonable fee, buy your own web domain and point it to your LoopyFood.net page.

Food-related and other EVENTS

Fêtes, festivals, films, and many kinds of food-related and other events can be listed in the directory. Full listings are FREE for free-entry events. Listings for charging events can have a FREE basic listing or a fuller listing for a small fee.

COURSES, EDUCATION/TRAINING CENTRES & TEACHERS/SPEAKERS

The directory has a category for Courses/workshops/etc. on the Events map. Basic listings for paying events are FREE, with very cheap (i.e., £5) fuller listings available. Free-entry events have FREE full listings as default. There are also dedicated directory maps with FREE full listings for both Education/Training Centres and Teachers/Speakers/etc. Together, these resources should be useful for anyone looking to put together a (free or paid) educational event.

PROJECTS, GROUPS, START-UPs etc

The map/directory hosts FREE full listings for Food-Recycling projects, Food-Growing and appreciation groups (e.g., Supper Clubs or Foodie Clubs), Transition Groups, as well as food Start-Ups and other community-type listings. Just scroll the tabs at the bottom of the directory map to the right to see these categories.

SEARCH TIPS

BROWSING the map (on the Directory/Home page) is a good way of visually locating what is near to you: just head to the directory map and either zoom in on the map to your desired location or switch to a country map (listed on the left sidebar of the directory page) and then zoom in. You can then use tabs at the bottom of the map to select a different food map (e.g., producers, accommodation, stores, events); more tabs are available by scrolling right (you can expand the map to fill your screen, just like any other online map). See below for more on searching or go to the page that sets out in more detail how to find local organic food.

Find Organic Food Near You

Browse the map for a simple, visual way to locate listings

 

Use the SEARCH BAR below the map as an alternative to browsing the map. You can be very specific in what you are searching for. If you put your postcode (or town etc.) into the ‘In or Near’ box, the search results will be ordered in terms of distance from your location (featured listings first, then other listings). To be ‘GEOLOCATED‘ click on ‘Near Me’ in the ‘In or near’ box in the search bar below the map. When the compass in that bar turns blue you are ‘geolocated and a pulsing blue beacon on the map (see above picture) shows your location. If the location is set incorrectly by your internet server, just turn it off again and use the location selector at the right of the main menu (or try dragging-and-dropping the blue beacon to your actual location, although it might move back if you leave the page)! There are also advanced searching options to help you customise and narrow your search and find just what you are looking for.

Search for Organic Food Near You

Click on the compass icon in the Search Bar and select ‘Near Me’ to be geolocated
