Good for your community, good for you.

Happy New Year!

At this time of year many of us reflect on the changes we'd like to make for the better; changes that can improve our own lives and the lives of others around us.

Changing the way you do your weekly shopping could make a big difference.

The Community Farm is a not-for-profit organisation. The income we make from selling organic boxes is reinvested into our educational and community activities.

So you can support your local community while enjoying the benefits of having organic and locally-sourced produce delivered to your door each week.

 

 

How we reinvest box sales income

At The Community Farm, we're developing a new model of sustainable, organic farming, where all members of the community can come together and play a part in producing their own food.

We aim to enhance the public's understanding of farming, reconnecting people with the land and demonstrating how food can be produced in a sustainable way.

Our educational and community activities include school visits, children's activities, adult learning, community events and volunteering opportunities;

We are also in the process of developing activities for a range of vulnerable groups of people.

Why buy from The Community Farm?

Local and ethical

  • Unlike some box schemes, The Community Farm is owned by members of the local community, with more than 500 investor members
  • Our 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 (Soil Association certified or equivalent if sourced from abroad)
  • The products we sell from abroad are never air-freighted.
  • We accept Bristol Pounds


Variety

  • As well as a wide variety of vegetables and fruit we sell a range of grocery items.
  • Vary your order online, whenever you want to.

Choose from:

  • a selection of box types and sizes
  • exclusively local produce or from slightly further-a-field
  • monthly, fortnightly, or weekly deliveries


Convenience

  • Our organic boxes are delivered direct to your door. We may also be able to set up a local delivery hub near you, such as a school, workplace or community centre
  • We deliver to Bristol and Bath and the Chew Valley and Frome areas.


We deliver vegetable boxes to more than 400 people each week. Why not join them?
