Here are photos of our veg boxes from March, a mixture of our own produce and brought in veg from a local organic farm near Penzance. To order your veg box, please give us a call on 01736 788454 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Small boxes are £6 and standard boxes are £10. Collection from the farm or we can deliver veg boxes to your door for only £1 extra in the following areas – St Just, Pendeen, Morvah, Treen (Gurnard’s Head), Sennen, St Buryan, Crean, Paul, Newlyn, Mousehole, Lamorna, Porthcurno, Penzance, Madron, Heamoor, Newbridge, and anywhere in between. You can add our fresh free-range eggs, Vicky’s bread and Treen Farm organic milk to your box too.
With the farm waterlogged and polytunnels being battered by the repeated high winds, we’re still out in all weathers harvesting veg, and the polytunnels are really helpful at this time of year, allowing us to get an early start on sowing tomatoes, aubergines and peppers as well as sheltering crops such as green sprouting broccoli and our mixed salad leaves. Call 01736 788454 to order your box.
Here are the veg boxes from February so far:
Items marked * are organically grown near Penzance, all other items are grown on Bosavern Community Farm.

During January we have dug up some delicious carrots and parsnips and potatoes, as well as pak choi, salad leaves, watercress and celery from our polytunnels and black winter radish. We have also been supplementing our own produce with locally grown, organic cabbages, kale, swede and celeriac (from Crowlas).
Here are some of our small veg boxes from January.
We’ve been so busy picking, sowing and preparing land, that October’s veg box pictures are a little late. But we think you’ll agree that October is a great time to get a veg box with all the colourful polytunnel produce, plus greens such as chard and kale and newly dug carrots and picasso potatoes. Give us a call to order a veg box on 01736 788454.
This is our small £6 veg box, proudly featuring mixed salad leaves and flowers, half a kilo of tomatoes, the first of this year’s Picasso pink-eyed potatoes, 2 peppers, 2 ring o fire chillies, and half a kilo of mixed courgettes.
