Case Study 19: BigBarn

Anthony Davison is a 5th generation farmer who set up BigBarn after supermarkets sold his onions for 8X the price he was paid for them. BigBarn’s mission is to combat supermarkets control of the supply chain by reconnecting consumers with their local producers, giving farmers a better deal and consumers fresher, cheaper, accountable food. Get involved!

“If we don’t change we will pay for it in the long run and that’s what really frustrates me about the government; we have free education and free health care and we are in a half socialist state, yet the government thinks that money will sort everything out, a capitalist society with fix everything, but it wont and if we don’t watch it we will be following America and our health system will be bankrupted by our food system. Which will be a disaster. So let’s do something now.”
