Box schemes in the Bristol area with locally grown food:
Leigh Court Farm
This is by far the most local box scheme for Bristol, as Leigh Court Farm is situated just beyond Leigh Woods, off the road to Portbury. The vegetables are mostly grown at the farm; much fruit comes from abroad in the winter, but they try to source as locally as they can.
Boxes delivered to Bristol collection points on Thursday. Order by post/email.
£11 and £19.50 veg boxes, £9.50 organic fruit bag, £15 mixed fruit & veg box.
The Community Farm
The Community Farm has taken over running the Better Food Company box scheme. There are a variety of boxes priced £6.95–£21, and this week’s box content is listed on the website. Boxes are delivered to the door, and to a range of ‘hubs’ in Bristol, where they can be picked up by customers.
Bristol veg boxes
The scheme sources very local and fresh vegetables (the majority come from within 15 miles of bristol ) and delivers them all over Bristol. They are grown without the use of artificial fertilizers and pesticides. Boxes are as seasonal as possible and come in three sizes – small £7.75, medium £11.75 and large £20.77. Fruit, eggs and other extras are also available.
