We are a community-run, non-profit farm growing organic vegetables and fruit for 150+ households in Leamington Spa and the surrounding area. There are approx 10 acres of field vegetables, 2 acre orchard and 7 large polytunnels. We were established by and for the local community to provide sustainable and organic food in harmony with nature, with people not profit at the core.

We are one of the UK's most successful Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) projects with a membership of over 150 households. We provide a "share" of vegetables and fruit all year round and do not buy anything in from other farms, so our members get to enjoy truly seasonal produce every week of the year. We are a good place to visit if you are interested in alternative forms of community-based food production, especially CSAs. We have a small staff team but are supported by regular volunteers from the community which makes us a very sociable place to volunteer.

We host one 2-week "volunteer camp" per year, when we will have up to 8 volunteers staying on site, so although there is no host family as such at the site, there will be other volunteers so it is very sociable! This year our volunteer camp will be from 11th - 23rd June 2018. If you are interested please apply early as spaces tend to fill up quickly!
