FARM:shop is the brain child of three eco creatives, Andrew Merritt, Paul Smyth and Sam Henderson of designer agency Something & Son. Bringing together their knowledge in art, engineering and business they came up with the ingenious social initiative FARM in 2010, a concept which aims to encourage farming in the city and involves inspiring Londoners to grow their own food, fabric and medicine with the potential aim of selling it in the FARM:shop. Housed in a once derelict store, the shop grows-its-own (there's a fish farm, rooftop chicken coop, allotments and polytunnels on site) and both sells what it produces and uses it in its shop café.
