Laura Jayne Burlison
I'm Laura. A love of all things outdoors, inspiration drawn from my time working and travelling New Zealand and many years spent growing up on my family's smallholding lead me to set up The Paddock, my own small business in 2013.
The Paddock itself is my family's 6 acre smallholding based on the Northumberland border. The Paddock as a business is an organic fruit and veg box scheme and farm shop with a focus on zero waste. The focus of The Paddock centres around local food produced in a sustainable and environmentally friendly manner, with minimal packaging.
Over the years since setting up The Paddock, I've learned many things, and researched many topics to make my dream and passion a reality. Through my blog space I hope to share some of this with you, from gardening tips, to recipe ideas to ways to live a greener lifestyle! Feel free to get in touch with any comments or questions you may have and I will do my best to answer them!
I am available for workshops, speaking events, and private consultations. If you are planning to set up a zero waste business or similar, I can offer one on one support or if you have an event planned, and would like a guest speaker surrounding the issues of organic food, zero waste, plastic free ethics and running a sustainable, eco friendly business, please get in touch to discuss the options.
I firmly believe in the importance of organic food in nourishing our bodies and the planet. A huge part of this is our own self care. We must look after our bodies through the food we eat, exercise and our impact on our natural environment. As such, I have created a space for wellness adjoined to our Farm Shop called The Studio, where we plan to host workshops and sessions based around all of the things that make us feel good; whether that be exercise, art, crafts, music or whatever you enjoy. We will be bringing you a programme of sessions, but in the meantime, the space can be rented for you to run your own sessions for an hour, half day, full day or week - just head over to The Studio Page for full info. Bookings can be made on the Booking Page. I hope you enjoy reading my blog, and sharing this space with me, and I hope to see you at The Paddock soon!
