If you live within a 15 mile radius of Rhynie we can deliver a weekly box of fresh and tasty veg to you.
Our boxes will contain between 5-8 varieties of seasonal veg that we can grow outdoor here on the side of Tap o’ Noth hill. A typical veg box in summer could contain a selection from – cabbage, broccoli, salad bag or whole lettuce, radishes, herbs, chard, kale, carrots, broad beans, mange tout, onions, beetroot, turnips. Large crops such as potatoes are only grown in small quantities and will only be available to our CSA Members (see below) or we would advise buying from another local source.
We offer two options to choose from to get your veg – a weekly, pay for what you receive scheme and a special CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Membership deal. Your veg box will be delivered to a pick up point in your nearest town for you to collect. See below for details.
To secure your weekly veg box please sign up to our mailing list and choose your membership and box size preference. We will then be in touch to discuss your payment options. We have a maximum of 35 veg boxes available on a first come first served basis, so sign up to secure your box.
We are aiming for late June to make our first veg box harvest/delivery.
CSA Membership Share
A great way for grower and consumer to connect by sharing the risks and rewards of seasonal farming. By paying for a whole season in advance (and slightly ahead of the start of harvest season), members are in effect purchasing a ‘share’ of the farm. This greatly supports the farmer and in return the member receives a weekly share of the harvest. In the height of the growing season your weekly share will be bountiful and at leaner times of the year your box will contain the usual five – eight varieties of veg.
Other benefits of a CSA Share membership:
- You get more veg!
- cheaper than paying by the week
- a more varied selection of veg
- access to smaller harvests of unusual veg that may not make it into the standard veg boxes e.g herbs, seasonal fruit, hard to grow varieties, potatoes
- makes purchasing just one easy payment (no need to remember to pay our invoices!)
When you sign up you sign up for the full 20 weeks. If you are away one week then you must organise someone else to pick up your share box for you – a great way to meet your neighbour by sharing your veg!
