Hay for sale

This year's hay is now for sale at the farm, at a very competitive £3 per small bale. Please pay in the farm shop. Local delivery may be available if requested, for a small charge.

Farmers' Markets

Bosavern Community Farm always has a stall at our three local farmers' markets:-
Sennen, in the hall behind the school, 09:00-12:00 every Tuesday;
St. Just, in the WI hall near the church, 09:30-12:30 every Saturday;
and Pendeen, in the Centre Of Pendeen, 10:00-13:00 every first and third Saturday of the month.

We are one of many stalls at these markets, with other stalls selling bread, raw chocolate, cheese, meat, curry sauces, crafts, jewellery, books, pies, cakes, quiches, jams, chutneys, soaps, chilli sauces, smoked fish, upcycled furniture etc.... Please come along and support your local producers and artisans, and support your communities and the local economy.

Each market also has a seated cafe, with cakes and tea and coffee.

Farm open day Sunday 1st October midday till 4pm

On Sunday 1st October, in association with CSA Network UK, we will be having an open day from 12 till 4pm, which is a free event to which everyone is invited. There will be a tour of the farm, a visit to the bee education shed with its demonstration hives, Rosie's food van, stalls from various conservation organisations, face painting, vegetable monster making, our farm shop, plus whatever else we can think of over the next week and on the day! Please come along to eat cake, learn about the farm, have fun, meet people, eat more cake, and maybe lend a hand - see you there...

Bethany, Celine, Martin and Mira

The team of four wwoofers who helped us during hay harvest (and a lot more besides) have all left the farm over the weekend. Bethany (from Falmouth, on her third visit), Celine (from France), Martin (from Germany), and Mira (from Italy) all came to the end of their volunteering stays with us, and we thank them for their hard work and commitment during their time at the farm.
