The Community Farm, based in Chew Magna, Somerset, is a community-based social enterprise owned by over 500 people, the farm grows and sells organic food via their award winning veg box delivery service which covers Frome and the Chew Valley.
The public are welcome to the community farm to learn about sustainable farming practices and to lend a hand. Any help is welcome down at the Community Farm and there are many volunteering opportunities if you fancied getting involved.
Overlooking the Chew Valley Lake on 8.3 acres of beautiful sandy loam, organically certified, Grade 1 agricultural land, the Community Farm also has an educational center which is funded from the profits of their award winning food boxes; each month they host groups of school children and lay on special events and workshops in an effort to help educate people on sustainable farming practices and to help reconnect people with where their food comes from. If you happen to be driving by, pop in to meet the team and take advantage of the various wildlife that can be seen around the farm including skylarks, woodpeckers, lapwings, yellowhammers, buzzards, kestrels, stoats, badgers and deer.
Working alongside other local and organic food producers, the Community Farm can supply a wide range of fruits and vegetables to their customers.
