How can I pay?
You can pay for your whole subscription at the start of the season (one off payment) or on a monthly basis. We'll send a link for online bank transfer or get in touch for other payment options.
Can I swap items in my box?
We have found that customers love receiving a seasonal mix from the farm, but if you there's a veg item you don't like you can of course let us know your preferences on the sign up form.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
We are aiming to model a CSA scheme which means that the growers and eaters (you!) form a symbiotic relationship whereby the latter support the farmers livelihood and the farmer provides them with produce through the seasons. The commitment to a full season helps us plan the growing minimise waste and create a more resilient farm & community.
