Are you looking for locally produced veg that is as fresh as possible?
We produce seasonal veg boxes delivered locally or you can collect from the farm. For 2020 membership is now FULLY SUBSCRIBED.
To be kept up to date if a share of our harvest becomes available or if we grow so much produce that we can accommodate more shares this year, please subscribe to our Future Veg Box newsletter.
Vegetables, herbs and fruit are harvested the day of delivery or collection to ensure that they are as fresh as possible.
Our Local Veg Box scheme is run as a CSA (please see What is a CSA?). By joining our CSA scheme you will become a valued part of our smallholding.
Standard Veg Box £10 per weekly ‘share’ contains a minimum of 7 different vegetables, herbs and fruit. Large Veg Box £15 per weekly ‘share’ contains the same selection of vegetables, herbs and fruit, but has more of each variety.
When available (because our girls are fussy layers) –
6 chicken eggs £2.00
6 duck eggs £3.00
HOW IT WORKS.
Each ‘share’ of our harvest is picked and packed by hand and is subject to the joys and not-so-joyous effects of the weather.
You will share in the glut of an abundant harvest and when the harvest is not so abundant there will be less of whichever vegetables are affected.
We grow using bio-intensive methods to provide as much food as possible from the space we have, without the use of ‘chemicals’ like herbicides, pesticides etc.
Our vegetables will not be evenly sized and may not be straight (expect wonky carrots!).
Vegetables, herbs and fruit will be unwashed, we recommend that you wash all produce prior to use.
At the height of the growing season you may receive an abundance of vegetables, fruit or herbs, making it an ideal time to preserve some for use during the winter months or to share them with family and friends.
Payment is normally made in advance, so we know how much food we need to grow for the year.
During our second season (2020) payment will be in advance for the whole season (except where this would exclude you from joining the scheme, in which case, please talk to us and we may be able to arrange for monthly payments in advance.)
Payments can be made by bank transfer, Paypal or cash, we’ll send you details with your membership contract.
You will be invited to visit the farm and see how and where we grow your food and ask any questions that you may have about it.
If you are away or on holiday, you will need to arrange for someone else to have your veg box delivered to them or to collect it from the farm.
You can cancel your membership at any time by giving us one month’s notice in writing, which will allow us some time to find a new member to receive your veg box.
We can deliver to pick up points in Caldicot, Caerwent and Chepstow or you can collect from the farm – we will confirm the delivery or collection day in your membership contract.
We occasionally offer volunteering opportunities.
WHAT OUR MEMBERS SAY.
Don’t just take our word for it, here’s some feedback from our 2019 CSA Veg Box Scheme.
I have been having the veg boxes since Liz started and am loving the variety and quality of the produce. I love that I am supporting local organic growing and getting such lovely fresh veg every week.
I had a standard veg box for the season and absolutely loved it. Plenty of vegetables for 2 people, all super fresh and so much nicer than shop bought. Liz also provided suggestions on what to use veg for and introduced me to roasted garlic which is just delicious.
I really enjoyed receiving the veg boxes from Liz this summer as I met quite a few vegetables I hadn’t met before. I am not normally very adventurous with my meals but Liz would explain what each colourful vegetable was, and even included edible flowers too, and each meal gained something new. My boys were delighted to see such colour in their food.
Liz runs a unique veg box scheme. You aren’t just buying fresh quality vegetables, you’re a part of the yearly lifecycle of the amazing land it’s grown on!
