    Camel Community Supported Agriculture’s vegetable boxes contain a fantastic selection this week.

    • Small boxes have an assortment of:
      *Chard-camel csa 31-07-09potatoes (Camel CSA)  
      *onions (Camel CSA)
      *Swiss chard (Camel CSA)
      *courgettes (Mark Norman / Bokelly, St Kew)
      *carrots (Jeremy Brown)
      *beans (Bokelly, St Kew)
      *small salad bag (Jane Mellowship)
      & tomatoes (Rest Harrow Farm, Trebetherick)
    • Standard boxes are filled with the same as above, but not the Swiss chard.  They also have:
      *
      large salad bag instead of small (Jane)
      onions-camel csaplus
      *peppers (Jeremy / Jane)
      *parsley (Jeremy)
      & baby leeks (Rest Harrow Farm, Trebetherick)
      AND some plums donated by Mark Norman’s Dad, who lives in Devon!* = grown to organic principles

    Once again, the boxes contain freshly-picked vegetables from Camel Community Agriculture’s own plot at St Kew Highway plus high-quality produce from our three expert growers and an outside supplier.

    As the label of our mixed salad bag explains:

    salad-bag-camel csa 28-08-09This mixed salad has been picked this morning from Carruan Farm’s veg plot managed and grown chemically free by Gav and Jane Mellowship… 
    … This bag represents a main ethos of community supported agriculture.  It is supporting an existing agricultural business in the local community by creating a new market and securing it.  We’re sharing the risks and benefits in a close working relationship.
