Bosavern Community Farm is situated near St Just at the very western tip of Cornwall near Land’s End. We are a not-for-profit Social Enterprise run on Wholesome Food Association principles by a community of employees, members and volunteers.

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. 

 

  • Virginia and Ben
    Virginia returned to volunteer on the farm for a second time, for ten weeks, and Ben for his third time, for two weeks. It's always lovely to have wwoof volunteers come back to us and help again.
  • Spring cleaning the farm shop
    The farm shop only closes for three days every year (Chrsitmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Year's Day), so we have to take the opportunity to give it a good clean and tidy (last year we painted the floor too). Virginia and Ilaria spent all day yesterday doing this, and we were open again at […]
  • Christmas farmers' market
    To support the turning on of St. Just's Christmas lights, and the walking nativity, the farmers' market opened for the evening of Friday 13th December, offering all the usual stalls, plus mulled wine and mince pies, with a special guest appearance by the incredible Pendeen Silver Band playing carols.
