To plant more fruit for people to enjoy in local communities
for free and reduce our carbon footprint as we do it
Once upon a time…
In March 2020 three friends (Ryan, James and Matt) decided to follow their dream of making fruit freely available to everyone and Freely Fruity was founded. The vision to provide food to people and wildlife through planting fruit trees and bushes in local communities. Beyond sustenance, there was the added benefit the trees would directly reduce carbon emissions and lower the carbon footprint of shop bought fruit.
Where it all began
We want to create a positive change by…..
- Reducing carbon emission
- Educating to eat healthy
- Save money from weekly shopping
- Reduce global food waste
- Inspire the younger generations
- developing community spirit
We currently farm a compact two acre, organic site in Sindlesham. Onsite there are large netted enclosures, a 60ft polytunnel and several raised beds. Aside from this we also have our fruit tree nursery; these trees are destined to be planted in various local community projects. All food grown on site is donated to local food banks and other charities.

It is a passion of ours to help alleviate the burden placed on natural resources by current global intensive farming practices. Here are just a few facts that might surprise you about the UK’s yearly figures:
