Chagfood is a community supported market garden supplying fresh, seasonal vegetable shares to households in Chagford and its neighbouring parishes. All of the vegetables we supply are produced on five acres of organic certified ground at Rushford Mill farm just outside Chagford, we use working horses for the cultivation and tillage of our veg and we’re all about putting the culture back into farming.
As a community supported market garden our customers sign-up for a year’s supply of our vegetables which are delivered to a collection point every Thursday during the season. Customers pay either up front in April each year, or set up a monthly direct debit, either way they tend to feel a lot more connected to where their veg is coming from, how its produced and the people producing it.
We supply a full veg share (box or bag) from July-February each year and a few items a week outside of those months. Everything we supply has been harvested on the day its delivered and has all been grown within half a mile of Chagford. For the 2015 season we will be offering three sizes of veg share: A large share which is suitable for a family and costs £660 for the year, or £55 per month. A small share suited for a smaller household which costs £500 for the year or £41.66 per month. We are now also offering a weekly veg-bag suitable for individuals which costs £360 for the year of £30 per month. As we’re producing local veg for local people we don’t have the added costs of alternative veg-box schemes and as a result we’re able to remain extremely competitive on price.
If you would like to find out more or sign-up for a fresh weekly share of Chagfood produce for the 2015 growing season please give Ed a call on 07858 381539
