Welcome to Five Acre Community Farm!
*** Update – Garden Organic are considering all the options they have received from the tender and have as yet not made any decision on what they are going to do. However they have said they do not expect anything to happen very fast and we believe there will be no major changes this year.
To keep our options open if anyone knows any local land owners, farms or other land that might be suitable for us please contact us @ firstname.lastname@example.org ***
As many people will be aware Garden Organic have put Ryton Gardens up for sale.
After a lot of discussion we have put in a tender to buy part of the site. This includes the land and buildings we have been using for over 6 years now as well as the gardens to make sure they are saved for the community.
The tender has been submitted to the agent, you can see it here or by following the top link on the right hand side of this page. There is also a press release under the media tab at the top.
If you wish to join our newsletter or find out more about how you can help please email us at email@example.com
We are an organic vegetable farm founded in early 2012, based at Garden Organic in Ryton, between Coventry and Rugby.
We are a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Scheme, to find out more of what that means click the “What is a CSA?” link in the FAQ menu above.
We are also a community and have regular social events such as bring and share meals, scarecrow building sessions and film shows as well as twice weekly work mornings for anyone who fancies helping out (Saturday and Tuesday 10am to 1pm). Everything is optional though, each person chooses how much to get involved.
You are always welcome to pop in on Saturday and Tuesday or come to a social event to see what we are like. You can even come at other times by prior arrangement.
Join us as a veg share member and enjoy fresh local seasonal veg every week, collect it straight from the farm or join a group to share the collection.
You can also come and help with general work around the farm such as weeding every Tuesday and Saturday Mornings. This is a great way to do some exercise outside with other people.
There is an introduction video here.
