  • Coleshill Organics

    Email:

    Coleshill Organics was started on a small farm at Watchfield in 1995; from an initial two acres this has grown to about seven acres in total now. The box scheme operates from within the walled garden in Coleshill, on the Oxfordshire/Wiltshire border. Free delivery is offered to collection points and individual homes within a 15 mile radius of Coleshill. New customers signing up to receive a regular box delivery get their fifth box free. There is also a farm shop located within the walled garden which is open from Wednesday to Saturday. Coleshill has thousands of visitors each year, mostly school/college groups who pick and eat their way around the garden and hopefully develop a lasting desire to know where their food originates from. The business grew out of a passion to provide local people with the highest quality fresh produce. Coleshill Organics can also be found every Saturday from 9am until 2pm at Cornhill Market Place (and surrounding streets), Stroud, GL5 2HH.

  • Fordhall Organic Farm

    Email:

    The Fordhall  Community Land Initiative (FCLI) is a social enterprise owned and run by 8,000 non-profit making shareholders. It owns Fordhall Organic Farm, utilising it to reconnect the community to food and farming through events, volunteering and educational activities. The FCLI leases the farm land to a tenant farmer, Ben Hollins. Like any other tenant farmer, Ben manages the land, livestock and farm shop with his own staff and pays a monthly rent to the FCLI. The farm shop and online store stocks meat raised on the farm as well as locally-grown vegetables and locally-produced produce including milk, cheese, yoghurt, honey, alcohol and other artisan foods. They now have their own bakery on site, making pasties, pork pies, sausage rolls, steak pies and more. Fordhall can deliver nationwide though the online shop or you can pop in and collect your meat and produce fresh from the counter. As well as the farm shop and educational visits, Fordhall also has its own 30-seater bistro. Arthur’s Farm Kitchen serves hot food all week (Tues-Sun), starting with breakfasts, followed by lunches and cold sandwiches or soups late afternoon. All this in addition to home-made cakes, scones, freshly ground organic and fairtrade coffee, organic/herbal teas and a great atmosphere.
