The Community Farm Limited
Organic farming (Environment)
A vegetable box scheme for Bristol and Bath, set on 34 acres in Chew Valley, Somerset. The Community Farm believes in increasing knowledge of growing. Through activities, courses and volunteer days they offer hands-on experience to people from all walks of life which not only gives them the opportunity to learn new skills but also allows them to reconnect to where their food comes from.
Organic agriculture recognises the relationship between our environment, our health and the food we eat. As well as high animal welfare standards, organics avoids the use of pesticides and chemical fertilisers and helps to revitalize the earth. And, because organic farming releases less greenhouse gases than non-organic farming, it means a smaller carbon footprint for the environment. Lending in this sector varies from dairy and meat, to forestry and fruit.
