Local Organic Vegetable Boxes

If you are looking for local organic vegetables then you have come to the right place. We supply boxes of home grown organic vegetables to families from the Quantock Hills to Bridgwater and Taunton.

We are at Stowey Rocks, an 80 acre organic farm just outside the village of Over Stowey in Somerset where we grow more than 100 different types and cultivars of vegetables, herbs and soft fruit to provide a good variety of produce for our award winning local box scheme.

I started growing organic vegetables in 2000, delivering just a handful of boxes in Goathurst, Enmore, Spaxton and Bridgwater. Remke joined me in 2003 and together we formed Plowright Organic Produce and began to increase our production and the number of boxes. In 2004 we received second place in the ‘Organic box scheme of the year’ awards and were runners up in the Somerset life ‘best organic product and trader’ award 2006.

We manage all the land at Stowey Rocks to organic standards and are certified organic by the Bristol based Soil Association certification Ltd. License number UK5 /AB17796.

We believe strongly in the principles of organic agriculture as agreed by the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM) www.IFOAM.org. These principles cover a wide range of issues from social justice to animal welfare, environmental management and biodiversity. In organic farming pests, diseases and weeds are managed rather than eradicated . Organic farming promotes healthy soils for healthy crops and healthy people!

Growing organic vegetables is hard work and requires attention to detail but we would not want to grow them any other way. Our box scheme enables us to produce affordable organic food on a small scale. We use minimal packaging and sell locally to reduce food miles. Ultimately we want to develop a sustainable organic system to provide good quality seasonal vegetables to local people and in so doing, help to re-make the connection between the land and people.
