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 or in close proximity to the county boundary.

If you are cooking or adding value to a primary food, a minimum of 30% of your ingredients should be of Hampshire origin. 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 and it is the Hampshire range that Hampshire Fare will promote.

Criteria details:
Farmers:

  • Must farm within Hampshire or within 10 miles of the Hampshire county boundary.
  • Livestock must have spent at least 50% of their life in Hampshire or within 10 miles of the Hampshire county boundary.
  • The business itself must be based in Hampshire or within 10 miles of the Hampshire county boundary.

Food and drink producers:

  • 30% of each product's ingredients must have been grown or reared in Hampshire or within 10 miles of the Hampshire county boundary.
  • Where Hampshire ingredients are not used in all products, there must be a 'Hampshire range' adhering to the above criterion, with clear marketing to set it apart. In this case it is this range alone that will be eligible for Hampshire Fare membership benefits.
  • The business itself must be based in Hampshire or within 10 miles of the Hampshire county boundary.

Craft producers:

  • Crafts must be produced from raw materials of Hampshire origin or from within 10 miles of the Hampshire county boundary.

Where Hampshire materials are not used in all crafts, there must be a 'Hampshire range' adhering to the above criterion, with clear marketing to set it apart. In this case it is this range alone that will be eligible for Hampshire Fare membership benefits. The business itself must be based in Hampshire or within 10 miles of the Hampshire county boundary.
