join us with producer membership

Producer Membership applies to farmers and businesses that produce food, drink and crafts from ingredients or raw materials grown or reared in Hampshire and in close proximity to the county boundary. Where a business makes a range of products and not all of them include Hampshire ingredients, it must be made clear in the business's own marketing where Hampshire produce is used.

membership criteria – farmers

  • Livestock must have spent at least 50% of their life in Hampshire or within 10 miles of the Hampshire county boundary.
