Locavore is an editorial-led magazine, defined by beautiful photography and intelligent writing. Firmly based in the British Isles, we’ll also roam the world for the best local food stories and the most inspiring people.

Locavore will explore how food is found, grown, prepared and served. We’ll meet foragers, farmers, artisans, teachers and cooks, and learn about their ideas and what motivates them. We’ll discover flavour, variety, method, tradition and ritual.

We’ll look at community projects, networks and campaigns, and investigate the science and effects of modern agriculture and production. We’ll explore food philosophies that put the land, consumer and animal first and contrast these with a globalised food system that homogenises taste and commodifies nature. And we’ll examine food security and sovereignty within a changing climate.

At 132 pages and perfect bound, Locavore will be published quarterly and printed to a high eco-standard. It’s available via individual issue sale and subscription. The first issue was published in November 2017.

Not just another trendy foodies’ magazine, we want Locavore to be the journal of local food, telling stories of slow, seasonal and sustainable eating, engaging in debate and delivering images and writing of the highest quality.

Launch Issue: Seed

Locavore has grown substantially since the first idea for it; with 30 writers and more than 45 contributors, the launch edition clocks in at just under 60,000 words.

It features an array of well-known and emerging writers, including Rose Prince, Louise Gray, Oliver Rowe, Rachel de Thample, Pat Thomas, Valeria Necchio, Kieren Jefferson, Thom Eagle, Nicola Miller and Jane Mason.

We launch Locavore with an extended feature over thirty pages on Seed with a series of essays about local responses to the global seed crisis.
