Freshly picked vibrant vegetables, herbs and fruit!
We grow a huge range of different fruit and veg throughout the year available through our Veg Shares and Online Neighbourfood Markets
How Our Veg Shares work
A bit differently to others as we ask members to sign up for the whole year so we know how much veg we need to grow at the beginning of the season.
We encourage members to come to the market garden to pack their own boxes so they get to see where their veg is grown, meet us to ask any questions, they don't end up taking veg they aren't going to use and can have a little bit of flexibility of what they get.
What you get from us: -Veg shares will receive the widest range of produce that we grow. Whilst we do sell our produce to other local outlets, priority will be given to our share members. -Farm access when you come and pack your veg box, including pick your own opportunities, -Some choice of varieties and/ or extras when packing your own box which allows for a degree of swapping items to help reduce waste -Minimal/Zero packaging -Good value for money -Our weekly newsletter with recipes, what we've been up to, updates and events -Access to our members only CSA facebook group with recipe shares etc -You will have one free ticket to come on our farm tours on Saturday mornings -The first invites to workshops, courses, seasonal feasts and parties -10% Discount at Comrie Croft Farmshop

If you are interested in a weekly box please read the details in the document below. Whats going to be in the box? Seasonal, super fresh produce! A mixture of roots, leaves and fruiting crops that moves and changes with the seasons as certain crops become available, boxes will be varied and always have a balance of different crop types and may occasionally contain some unusual veg but we will try and include staple crops all weeks and provide some yummy recipe ideas for those more unusual items! Each box will have between 8 - 12 different items

What is Community Supported Agriculture? CSA helps to address increasing concerns about the lack of transparency, sustainability and resilience of our food system. It is one of the most radical ways that we can re-take control and ownership of our food system. The approach can vary. Consumers, often described as CSA members, are closely linked to the farm and the production of their food, and provide support that goes beyond a straight forward marketplace exchange of money for goods. This involvement may be through ownership or investment in the farm or business, sharing the costs of production, accepting a share in the harvest or providing labour. Read about the different types of CSA in the UK.
Farmers receive a more stable and secure income and closer connection with their community, and consumers benefit by eating fresh healthy local food, feeling more connected to the land where their food is grown and learning new skills. Read more about the benefits of CSA. At Tomnah'a our members sign up to a weekly veg box for the year, they come to the farm each week and pack their own box and some volunteer for a day helping to harvest the fruit and veg and help with packing. We organise work days when we have a big job like tattie harvesting and events to thank our members and celebrate harvests. We also plan to have flower picking and arranging workshops and pick your own days.
