Potatoes, dug yesterday, bagged today, delivered on Friday.

Our fresh seasonal veg boxes this week will include (all being well!):-

Small veg box - Carolus potatoes, kale, salad leaves, a red cabbage, and a cauliflower.

Standard veg box - Carolus potatoes, kale, watercress, a red cabbage, a cauliflower, some mixed herbs, spring greens, oriental greens, and purple-top turnips.

All grown here on the community farm except for the red cabbages and cauliflowers, which are travelling 14 miles from another organic grower.



Please follow this link to watch a beautiful new film, made last year by a film maker called Kate Colenbrander, who volunteered as a WWOOFer on four farms in the UK, one of which was Bosavern Community Farm. The film is a very good introduction to the ethos behind our farm, and similar farms, and the growing sustainable food movement in the UK and across the world.

If this film inspires you to join in, whether as a residential WWOOF volunteer, or in some other way, please contact us through the email on our website, or phone 01736 788454, or find us on the WWOOF website (or Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc...). Or walk down to meet us and have a look around!
