To support us we have a couple of options:
RealVeg CSA Supporter member £25 a year This is for those of you who believe in what we do, and just want to add a little financial support. In return for your generosity you will receive quarterly newsletters, keeping you up to date on RealVegs progress, and we will hold two events which all our members will be invited to through out the year. The events will involve good food and good fun!
RealVeg Trial 4 week veg share This is for those of you who would like to experience our veg for 4 weeks at any time before committing to a longer term membership.
RealVeg veg shares We offer a range of options from a monthly payment to a full year payment. As a CSA we encourgage you (where financially possible) to pay for your share of the harvest at the beginning of your membership. This is what being a part of a CSA model is all about. Support the growers financially with a commitment. A commitment to be with them throughout the year - through thick and thin, through abundance and the lean times. It's believing in what we do. Thank you :)
We have two veg shares on offer:
£10 SMALL – contains 5-7 items (including seasonal fruit from the farm) weekly or fortnightly
£15 MEDIUM – contains 7-10 items of veg (including seasonal fruit from the farm) weekly or fortnightly
Our veg is completely organic and its seasonal – we don’t offer veg that is out of season so you won’t find tomatoes in the winter or french beans in March. We aim to have only our veg in each veg share – there will be occassions throughout the year where this is not possible, if that happens we buy in from local organically certified farms.
Membership is free and automatic at sign up it includes:
A quarterly newsletter, an invite to social events throughout the year and an invite to our annual AGM where you get to share any feedback from your experience with RealVeg. You also get the opportunity to come and join in the fun of what it is to grow on the land with us. We send out regular emails informing you of volunteer days.
“Items” are for example 3 parsnips; a 150g bag of mixed salad leaves; 2 leeks; typical veg share from the seasonal selection of Organic veggies that we’ve been growing between the tree alleys at Wakelyns agroforestry farm.
Veg shares are run from June through till the end of March.
If you collect from us we will have a swap box available for anyone who fancies swapping veg if you’re super keen on courgettes but don’t want runnerbeans for example – if it’s in the swap box then you can swap.
We encourage you to come to the farm and collect your veg – we want you to come and see where the veg is being grown. We encourage you to get involved, come and volunteer, grow with us.
We are now offering delivery to your door if you live within a 6 mile radius and pick ups from collection points outside of that radius upto 15miles.
We know you probably have questions, we’ve tried to answer as many as we can in our FAQs page, please do look. And contact us if there’s something we haven’t covered.
