Our Vision is to develop a self-financing, community-led, food-growing initiative to benefit the wider community of St Just and West Penwith in an economically, environmentally and socially sustainable way.

The objectives of the Farm are:

  • To produce and sell local food
  • To provide community access to land and its produce
  • To provide opportunities for the local community to come together and learn about growing food, agriculture and  sustainable living
  • To provide a space for events, workshops, training, social time and celebration

 

Currently we grow and deliver fresh, local vegetables and eggs to the local community through our veg boxes, our farm shop, local farmers’ markets and to local businesses and schools. We have 6 polytunnels, a fruit cage, several bee hives and a number of outbuildings including the Hive, our education space.

 

In addition Bosavern Community Farm provides an environment for education, workshops, events and for the community to cultivate skills and join together to celebrate the produce and the seasons.
