How to reach Bosavern Community Farm.

We are located one mile south of St. Just on the road to Lands End Aerodrome, just before the hamlet of Kelynack.

There are plenty of buses to St. Just from Penzance Railway and Bus/Coach Station. The “First” buses 10 and 10A are the most frequent, but the “Western Greyhound” 509 is cheaper and faster. The last bus on Sundays leaves Penzance early evening, but on Saturdays and weekdays buses run till quite late. See for more details.

Once in St. Just it’s a 10-15 minute walk down to the farm. The bus will drop you at the main bus-stop opposite the Fire Station. Facing the Fire Station turn right and follow this road past the Post Office into the main square of St. Just (OK, it’s triangular, and has a pub on each side). Turn right and follow Fore Street for three minutes, with The Star pub on your left. When you reach the knitting and needlework/fabric shop on your right, take the small lane (Lafrowda Terrace) immediately after the shop, and follow this to the end. At the next junction cross straight over onto another small lane, and the same at the next, onto Carallack Terrace. At the end of Carallack Terrace cross the stile and follow the path along the left hand side of the field – you can now see the farm straight ahead of you. Cross a stile and keep following the path on the right hand side of the field, cross another stile and keep following the path. Soon you will cross another stile and come to a garage near some cottages. Go straight ahead down their drive to the main road. You will now see the farm across the road from you, so come on over.

If there’s no answer at the house we’re working in the fields. Cross the farmyard and enter the first field, turn right and follow the path along the right hand hedge. The gate in front of you leads to our vegetable field and polytunnels, and if we’re not there we’ll be in the chicken field or maincrop field, both of which are above the vegetable field. Explore the farm to find us, or just shout!
