New storage shed will protect our harvested vegetables

June 25, 2023

Volunteers Nick and Stan are busy building us a new insulated cool store at the back of the packing shed on our site at Treraven Farm. We really appreciate their input as they’re both highly skilled and super efficient.

The store will be used mainly for winter storage of vegetables like squash, pumpkins, onions, beetroot and various root crops that are harvested earlier in the growing season. It will protect them from extreme temperatures and attacks from rodents until they are needed in the veg boxes. It’ll also be useful for storing apples once our newly-planted orchard becomes productive.

The timber and insulating materials were financed from Wadebridge Renewable Energy Network – WREN‘s community benefit fund with money donated by Wadebridge energy firm CleanEarth.

In all this week’s veg boxes:
*peas in pod
*rhubarb chard
*green onions
*French beans (Camel CSA) or broad beans (Mark Norman, Bodmin)
*cucumber (Camel CSA) or *courgettes (Mark Norman)
new potatoes ‘Swift’ (Camel CSA) / ‘Foremost’ (Mark Norman)

Standard boxes also have:
*lettuce / *cucumber
*turnips (Mark Norman)
*calabrese (Camel CSA) or purple sprouting broccoli (Trerair Farm, St Eval)

* = grown to organic principles.  Please wash all veg thoroughly  
Produce grown by Camel CSA, unless indicated otherwise
