A FARM SHARING IDEA!

REKO RING ALBERTA

What is a REKO Ring?

REKO stands for ‘Fair Consumption’ and is a trade model developed in 2013 in Finland to connect local consumers and local producers.

Think of it like a weekly veg box meets farmers market. Cutting out the middle man and the guesswork for both the consumer and the producer so everyone is a winner!

You are helping support sustainable locally sourced produce, providing an ethical way to do your weekly shop, minimise waste and “reduce carbon footprints”

How does a REKO Work?

There are a few (Suffolk Nordic regions, where we got the idea) REKO ring groups – each one has a different collection point which will be held at a regular time and day each week for 30 minutes.

WHAT IS A FARM SHARE?

Producers post what they have for sale that week in their local REKO group here on the site…  The customer then orders by leaving a comment on the post. After the collection day, all the posts are deleted and the cycle repeats again.

Here is where we got the idea..James Corbett

This concept is being created on this site as we speak
