  • Harvest WholeFoods in Lydham, with a fresh delivery every Tuesday morning
  • A number of local restaurants


We grow a variety of veg, including:

  • Beetroot, Radishes, turnips
  • Lettuce, Spinach, Rocket, Rainbow Chard
  • Black Kale, Red Russian Kale and Baby Kale
  • Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Peppers, Aubergines, Courgettes, Squashes
  • Salad Onions, Herbs & Chillies
  • Rhubarb

This season we are offering a limited number of subscriptions for our veg box scheme. Please get in touch if you are interested in a weekly veg box from late April to October.

If you are a restaurant or local shop, please get in touch and we'll be happy to provide you with our wholesale prices.

See you at the markets!

The market garden emerged as a result of years of academic research on sustainability in local food systems. This shaped our vision of what we think a food system should be: We feel that local food should not only be delicious and accessible but can be produced in a way that benefits the environment, community and local economy. As we develop, we are keen to serve the community as an educational tool and a source of healthy, quality, and responsibly produced veg. We welcome suggestions on how we can best engage with the community.

We were recently featured in The Shropshire Star (July 3rd edition) . This article charts our move from London and our first few months of veg production in Bishop's Castle. Article by Mark Andrews.

Or just drop by! If you're on the Public walking path that runs up to Cwmmawr Dingle, we'd be happy to show you what we're doing.
