Community supported agriculture (CSA) is a partnership between farmers and the local community, in which the responsibilities, risks and rewards of farming are shared. Benefits are enjoyed by all sides: farmers for instance can receive a more stable and secure income and closer connection with their community, and consumers can benefit by eating fresh healthy food, feeling more connected to the land where their food is grown and learning new skills.
We set out primarily to grow our own food. We wanted to grow tasty, nutricious food for our family in a sustainable way. As our journey in reconnecting with the land has moved on, we find that many people are interested in what we are doing and are asking if any of our produce is for sale. The simple answer is "Yes, we have more than we need." With that in mind we have taken our produce to a couple of regular, local Farmers Markets but want to make it easier for others to share in the food that we are growing. So welcome to our website - an up to date lsit of what food we have available for sale.

YOUR PRODUCT RANGE IS QUITE SMALL
We are still in the early stages of establishing our land and are aware that out produce is limited.
Choice will increase over the coming seasons and we will look to include produce from other local producers, offering them a fair price for their goods. This all takes time to "grow" but we wanted to build the infrastructure now to share what we have.
