CSA Network UK

Bosavern Community Farm has recently joined the Community Supported Agriculture Network UK, and we have leaflets available in our shop with information about the organisation. A CSA is a "partnership between farmers and the community where the responsibilities, risks and rewards of farming are shared. This may be by CSA members paying for their veg boxes in advance, investing in the farm, or by helping out with growing and harvesting". Although our members do not pay for their veg boxes in advance (and neither do they receive a "share" of that week's harvest, but receive veg to the value of their box plus a little extra) some of them have invested in the farm through our Community Share Offer, and/or help as volunteers on the farm regularly or occasionally. Our veg box scheme has now been running since June 2011 and currently has approximately 40 members - please contact us if you would like to join.
