Do you like fresh and locally grown produce? If so, then our crop share is for you!

Our Crop Share is an opportunity for you to eat fresh and locally grown produce whilst supporting our other charitable activities.

We have 6 shares available, on a first come first serve basis, for collection/delivery on Thursday 24th July (and will be available weekly whist produce is growing!)

  • A weekly share costs £10 and will provide for approximately 1 to 3 adults/kids
  • The amount and varieties of produce in each weekly bag will vary according to what’s coming off our veg patches and out of the polytunnels. Each share will have a contents list.

To purchase your share, please fill out the form below and if we have a share left we will send you a link to pay through paypal on Tuesday. We will also contact you if you haven’t been successful. Please check on a weekly basis!
