What is a CSA veg-box farm?

Community supported agriculture (CSA) is a partnership between farmers and consumers in which the responsibilities and rewards of farming are shared.

The real local food revolution…

CSA helps to address increasing concerns about the lack of transparency, sustainability and resilience of our food system. It is one of the most radical ways that we can re-take control and ownership of our food system.

Direct connection…

The approach can vary. Consumers, often described as CSA members, are closely linked to the farm and the production of their food, and provide support that goes beyond a straight forward marketplace exchange of money for goods.

Benefits for all…

Farmers receive a more stable and secure income and closer connection with their community, and consumers benefit by eating fresh healthy local food, feeling more connected to the land where their food is grown and learning new skills.

The Essex Allotment Farm CSA…

A 22 week seasonal veg box service, providing organic seasonal vegetables for collection weekly from various collection points across Essex.

Our veg box service runs for 22 weeks from June to the end of October. offering many sign up and payment options, as well as different sized boxes. We cater for individuals and large families alike.

Along with a closer producer/consumer relationship we offer our customers the chance to be involved in the production in the food through a volunteer programme.
