Bristol Pound Farm Link Initiative
Outline of Scheme and Qualifying Criteria
The Farm-Link initiative extends special, beneficial terms of £B membership to primary producers based within 50 miles of the City of Bristol. If you or your business qualifies for Farm-Link, all payments you receive in £B can be exchanged for the same value of pounds sterling (£).
The £B scheme offers free widespread advertising and marketing as well as direct business to business opportunities. The £B helps maintain a healthy money supply for all the members through customer loyalty and recirculation of money between businesses and their customers.
Why are there special terms for Farm-Link members?
The purpose of the £B scheme is to improve economic, social and environmental conditions of the Bristol city region through increased spending in the independent sector.
We are committed to supporting the development of a local food network and generally increasing the proportion of food, energy/fuel, products, building and other materials supplied to the city, that originates in the region.
£B account holders want better access to locally sourced products and we believe it is healthier, better for communities and part of building a resilient and more sustainable economy.
Farm-Link is open to primary producers based within 50 miles of the City of Bristol. Business of all sizes, including individuals, producing goods such as fruit and vegetables, dairy, grain, meat and fish are eligible. Timber and other forestry products such as coppice, wild fruits, nuts and game also qualify. Qualifying businesses may have linked activities, producing secondary (processed) products e.g. cheese, sausages, building materials, bio-fuels etc.
What if I canʼt spend £B?
Farm-Link membership means you can spend £B with every other member business via an online account, mobile phone sms texts or using the paper pounds in circulation. If you do want to change the £B to sterling, itʼs quick and easy to do from your online account, at no cost.
