Your food source for the year ahead

This is an exciting way of producing and distributing food that connects you with the local people who grow it. You’re not just buying our veg. You’re choosing to co-create a food community.

Your upfront help ensures we can buy seeds, compost and pay for labour to nurture the seedlings before they reach you.

As part of the CSA* membership you will:

  • Support local Cornish small scale farming with the shortest supply chain
  • Because we harvest the day before or hours before delivery the veggies are packed full of vitamins, nutrients, and minerals
  • Support our food justice mission – together we will make a more just and equitable food system
  • The ability to pick up your box from the Food Barn and swap any items for anything else
  • Support the farm through your commitment – it’s an awesome way to support a the farm, because it provides funds to the farmers at the beginning of the season and guarantees a home for the produce
  • Enjoy food free from harmful sprays and aquaponics
  • Get to know your farmer
  • Reduce food waste
  • Receive food in plastic-free packaging where possible (we use degradable plastic in some cases as it keeps salad fresher)
  • Choose from two options: pay for the full season in advance or in instalments

You can visit our FAQs to see if we answer any questions you might have there.

Support our social justice mission

The next season starts in May 2022 and ends mid-February 2023. We take a week off at the end of August to get ready for winter and we take a week off over Christmas.

We’re operating on a sliding payment scale. Those who join the “upper” and “higher” income brackets will help us fund shares for people experiencing food poverty in Cornwall.

In a typical box, you can look forward to

We grow the food that doesn’t travel well, these are salads, greens and things with tops e.g carrots. Our aim is to get into your hands in the shortest time. These items shouln’t be moved from cold store to cold store and down the A30.

  • A visually appealing, nutrient-dense salad bag every week, with a bit of spice and remarkable flavours
  • We love super-healthy, zingy microgreens e.g. Pea Shoots, Radish or Sunflower shoots
  • Bunched root vegetables e.g carrots or beets are firm favourites
  • We always try and include a cooking green e.g spinach, baby kale or chard
  • In the summer you’ll have the finest cucumbers and tomatoes
  • You’ll also get some more fun seasonal stuff, expect some fennel, green sprouting broccoli, green beans, cabbage, snap peas and more
Boxes vary across the season

The Full Share has about 8-9 items

and generally feeds 2-4 people

The Half Share contains 5-6 items

and generally feeds 1-2 people

Pickup locations

It’s still early, so  pick up locations might flex and change. You can switch locations before the start of the season. Exact pick-up times will be confirmed by Spring.

 

  • The best place is to pickup from The Food Barn Tregew CIC in Flushing – a Saturday covered market with some other local suppliers. You can pick up your box, make swaps and buy more. Get your coffee and meet friends.
  • If you vulnerable or shielding or have transport issues you can choose delivery for £5 a week but we will need to check that you are on our route

Pickup spots include:

  • Flushing Food Barn
  • Penryn
  • Stithians
  • Carnkie
  • Falmouth
  • Truro
  • Or you can gather 5+ people and suggest a new pickup spot

We ask that you pick up your share if you are able. This gives us more capacity to deliver to vulnerable and low income households who don’t have transport.

Our sliding scale payment system

Our sliding scale pricing means there is an affordable box for everyone. And through that you choose to support our food justice mission – together we will work towards a more just and equitable food system.

Please consider carefully which payment level best aligns with your income and background. A fairer food system is possible if we all work towards it, using our available resources as a guide.

A Community Supported Agriculture scheme asks for commitment to the full season. We can’t operate week by week so we need your help.
We know life gets in way so you can give us a month’s notice if you need to stop. And if you pay upfront you get 5% off. See our T&C’s here.
