Chagfood is a subscription farming scheme based on the idea of Community Supported Agriculture. This is a relatively new approach to farming where consumers become members of the farm and commit to buy a share of the farm’s harvest for 12-months at a time.
In this way we have a secure market and are able to tailor our production to meet local demand. As a result we are able to adopt a more ecological and low-input approach to farming while our members take an active interest in where their food is coming from and how it is produced.
Community Supported Agriculture is popular across the rest of Europe and well established in the U.S. There are now more than 65 schemes operating successfully throughout the UK. Chagfood is one of the first schemes of its kind in Devon.
