CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture and is a partnership between us (the growers) and you (the eater), in which you can support us by subscribing to a whole season's worth of weekly (or fortnightly) veg boxes. This allows us to plan in advance, in terms of crop production and soil regeneration but also logistics. It is by far the most effective (and appreciated) way to support what we do and it has been recognised globally as one of the most radical ways to re-take control and ownership of our food systems.

Why should you become a CSA member?
As a CSA member you will:

  • secure a year's worth of our high quality, fresh, nutritious veg, harvested within hours of delivery or collection, meaning produce retains more nutritional value and stays fresher longer.

  • be connected directly to us and support our regenerative methods, aimed at improving the biodiversity and resilience of our landscape, as well as return ownership of our food system to our local community.

  • be introduced to new varieties and recommended exciting recipes to try.

  • be invited come to one of our 3 CSA-dedicated garden tours to see what we do, why we do it and ask us all your food and veg questions.

  • get our produce at the best price possible and with a lot of extras throughout the year. Whenever there is abundance of some crops we will gift you some items, and whenever there is a limited amount of a specific vegetable, we will reserve it for you. 

  • receive free delivery or collection at a discounted price.


How does a CSA work?
To become a CSA member, see the options below and select the box you prefer. The process is very simple:

  • Choose a box size: Large, Medium and Small. To see what is in a typical box in Spring, Summer and Autumn, see below.

  • decide to get a box weekly or fortnightly. 

  • If you would like to collect your box on a weekly basis, you can access our membership at a discounted price. 

  • Alternatively, you can select the Free Delivery option, and we will deliver the veg boxes to your doorstep on a weed day that will be decided in the new year. We offer delivery to Exeter, Exminster and Topsham.

  • You can pay either in one solution or in 6 monthly instalments. 

  • What if you go on holiday? If you are away for a period of maximum 3 weeks, there are three options:

    • arrange for a friend to collect and enjoy your box

    • donate it to a local charity

    • Get a discount voucher for one of our courses
