We have been growing vegetables on our holding since attaining the Soil Association's Organic Symbol in 1996. From planting just over one acre at first we are now filling about 11 acres each year, with more under green manures. We attempt to grow just about everything that is possible in this climate, from potatoes, carrots, and onions, through to squashes, jerusalem artichokes and various oriental brassicas.
Suppliers & Outlets
Our main outlet is delivering direct via our box scheme. We deliver a mixed box of in-season vegetables, selected from what we have available, to households within our catchment area on a regular basis, usually weekly. In order to maintain supply, particularly when we have a crop failure, we do buy in Organically Certified vegetables from elsewhere which enables us to provide a year round service. Our main suppliers are Leigh Court who are constantly expanding the area of land they have under Organic status in Abbot's Leigh, and Flight's Orchard, a co-operative of farms extending from Ledbury down through Gloucester with a very good reputation, who also act as importers for the more exotic items. Unlike a lot of wholesalers they only supply Organic produce so there is no danger of contamination.
We also deal with Essential Trading, a Bristol based company, who supply the bulk of the add-on items we offer. They are one of the oldest worker co-operatives within Europe, and base their business on a very strict ethical policy. By buying through them we can be assured that the producers are getting a fair deal, and that they will only offer the very best quality products.
We buy in the dairy products from Yeo Valley who are based in Blagdon, and are probably one of the best known Organic brands in the country. I've always been a big fan of their yoghurts, and it's great to be able to offer their products.
We also attend Bath Farmer's Market every Saturday from 9am until 1pm at Green Park Station, where you can buy a variety of our products.
