In our share this week

August 27, 2009

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

Small boxes have an assortment of:
*potatoes (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)

*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:

This 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.
