What we do

We're a not-for-profit organisation, investing income from our organic box delivery and wholesale business into our other activities. The money we make goes into making educational and community activities happen: children's farm visits, community events, activities for disadvantaged members of our community and opportunities for learning about farming and food. We are of and for the community. The Community Farm is a member-owned community benefit society with 500 members and share-holders.

Organic box delivery

Delivery to individual homes, offices and community hubs. We sell a wide variety of locally-sourced, organic fruit, vegetables and grocery items.

We deliver to Bristol and Bath and the Chew Valley and Frome areas.

The boxes include the vegetables we grow at the farm – you can't get much more local than that!

We work with a network of small suppliers that share our ethics and are as local as possible;

All the products we sell are organic, certified by the Soil Association (or an equivalent scheme if from abroad). None of our products are airfreighted.

You can choose from:

> a selection of box types and sizes

> exclusively local produce or from slightly further-a-field

> Monthly, fortnightly, weekly or one-off deliveries

> Vary your order whenever you need to.

Adult Learning and children's activities

We provide learning experiences to enhance the public's understanding of farming and demonstrate how food can be produced in a sustainable way. These include:

> School visits – primary and secondary

> Employee volunteering/team building

> Community Farmer Days

Why learn with us?

> The Farm is a real-life example of community-owned organic agriculture;

> Specialists in particular areas of expertise lead our workshops and visits, be they our own staff or carefully-selected tutors;

> Many of our workshops and activities are ‘hands-on’, so you can learn by doing;

> Learning takes place in the setting of a working farm, so it is easier to see how what you learn might be applied in the real world;

>We are located in beautiful surroundings overlooking Chew Lake;

>We have a purpose-built yurt for the indoor elements of our workshops and visits; there are also toilets, hand-wash, and tea and coffee-making facilities;

> The farm provides an opportunity for you to socialise with other members of your community
