To provide members of the farm with a share of fresh organic vegetables on a weekly basis. We are what is called a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) which is a partnership between our growers and the local community and we are based in a field at Ryton Gardens.
The partnership involves the members committing to pay a regular amount per month, and work a few times per year, in exchange for a share of the harvest. The monthly payments allow the grower to earns a regular wage rather than having to wait until the harvest before knowing if they will be able to sell thier veg.
Most of all it is fun! We share the work together, and have regular socials!
to be done shortly.
