CSA Winner 2015

Joint winners of the Cornwall Sustainability Awards 2015 in the category “Best Contribution to a Sustainable Food Economy – From Nature to Plate”.

Bosavern Community Farm was previously owned by Cornwall Council. was purchased from them and secured for the community on March 31st 2014 financed by a substantial grant from Local Food Lottery, a share option and an incredibly generous loan from a local benefactor. Bosavern is now under the stewardship of BCEnts, a locally run, not-for-profit community organisation.

The farm was originally (going back to 1918) used as a training farm to encourage new farmers into agriculture.
