Go Local Food is a local food co-op growing a wide range of amazing vegetables all year round. From staples such as carrots, onions and potatoes to more unusual varieties like calabrese and mizuna, we provide a wide range of high quality, nutritious and locally grown produce, hand grown in harmony with the local environment.
How our crop share works:
Every week late on a Friday afternoon or on a Saturday morning our members head to the Go Local Food fields located by the Halls of Heddon nursery at Ovington to collect their crop share of our locally grown vegetables.
The vegetables to go in the crop shares for the weekend will have been decided upon earlier in the week and harvested from the fields and poly tunnels during Friday by our work shares. The crops are taken to the Palace by crate or wheelbarrow and placed on the tables ready for our members to collect. Our members weigh out their own share guided by the amounts written on the board above the tables. Yes it’s all planned, methodical and worked out so that everyone gets a fair and proper share of what is picked.
Our crop shares come in 3 different sizes: small (typically 5 items), medium (typically 7 items) and large (50% more above the medium share). Find out how to join us here if you are not yet a member.
Or you can just take the option to be a member and pay the annual membership fee. This allows you to receive news via email as well as being able to join in all our social events. We appreciate our active supporters greatly.
