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. The £10 standard veg box had extra potatoes, plus the first of this season’s parsnips, 2 extra chillies, an extra pepper, a bulb of elephant garlic, and rainbow chard (but not the salad).
To order your veg box, please call us on 01736 788454.

Due to continued demand we are running our 3rd ‘Introduction to Bee-Keeping’ course with Matt Pitt of The Cornish Black Bee Company and the bees of Bosavern Community Farm, St Just on Saturday 15th August 2015.
The day consists of a morning of theory, a short break for a shared lunch, and then an afternoon of practical hands-on experience in our apiary.
Matt is a great teacher and leads a very approachable, enjoyable class, suitable for all ages. This course is suitable for you if you are thinking of getting bees or if you are in your first season of bee-keeping and would like to understand more about your hives.
Class size is a maximum of 6 people, to ensure everyone gets the best experience. This means places are limited!
The course is weather dependent so we ask that you are available to come on the Sunday 16th August if the weather is poor on the Saturday.
We are aiming to keep the costs as low as possible to ensure that everyone that wishes to has the opportunity to learn about keeping bees, hence the bargain price of just £30.00- this price includes Personal Protective Equipment, all course materials, insurance, teas and coffees, and a £5 donation to Bosavern Community Farm.
If you would like more information or to book a place please email Nikki at the farm: info@bosaverncommunityfarm
or call 01736 788454.
