100% Plastic Free
Our packets are 100% plastic free – they are made of paper, and the boxes are cardboard. You can simply recycle them both at home with your paper recycling. As easy as that. While paper packets might not seem that revolutionary, we are the FIRST and ONLY kid’s snack to have 100% plastic free packaging. While other leading brands might seem to have paper packets, they are actually lined with plastic. Sneaky.
We are the real deal
We are not a made-up farm, with a pretend character on the box. Freddie is our little boy, and he lives on our farm. It’s really called Bramley Mount Farm!
We grow our ingredients, we make our own products, and package them all on our farm – sadly that is unique! Freddie’s Daddy, Charlie, is in charge of making our delicious snacks, from plant to packet he know what’s gone in!
So if you look at other snacks or pouches available, you might be surprised to find that no one, as far as we can see, uses only British ingredients.
So many companies actually boast about sourcing their ingredients all over the world! Not a great example to set for our children’s future, we like to keep our carbon footprint tiny. And you are Backing British Farmers!
Importantly we would never ever bake our products. Other leading companies boast that they BAKE theirs! Not us. We don’t want sugar highs and crashes and that’s why we dehydrate.
Once our fruit and vegetables have been washed, sorted then simply grated (making sure to sieve out the pips and stalks), we put them into our dehydrator where warm air is blown over them for hours and hours.
No Added Sugar
Our snacks only contain natural sugars found in fruit and veg. Because they’ve not been boiled, cooked, or baked like other snacks, there is a slower rate of sugar absorption.
While we all strive to cut down the amount of sugar in our own, and children’s, diets; sugars from fruit and veg help provide energy to our young farmers to get all their important jobs done, it’s hard work after all!
FROM FREDDIE’S FARM TO YOUR FAMILY - We grow it, we make it, we pack it and we love it. We are a real family with a real hunger to make a change in the way that children currently snack. Freddie’s Daddy Charlie grows and makes our snacks right next door to the farmhouse. While Freddie's Mummy, Laurie, is in charge of social media and marketing, and his baby sister is in charge of eating the profits! And well Freddie, he is the inspiration for it all!
Not only do we want to create delicious healthy snacks we want to protect the planet for the very generation we are feeding! We love hearing from our customers and love a chat, so drop us an email or follow our journey on Facebook or Instagram for more information, pictures and for all latest news about all the fun we are getting up to on Freddie’s Farm.
