Our mission to feed people
Submitted by Richard on 9 November, 2016 - 16:03
Recently we have been supplying over half a ton of carrots each week into Bristol and Somerset through our veg box deliveries and wholesale outlets. In fact we grow everything for our veg boxes here at Stowey Rocks Farm which is an important part of our mission; we want to feed people by supplying households with all their vegetable needs. This means growing larger quantities of staple crops like potatoes, carrots, parsnips and onions, in addition to all the other crops. To ease the strain on our backs this winter, we are working on restoring a well used carrot harvester to its' former glory. At the moment, after a pass with the undercutter to slightly raise and dislodge the carrots, we pull them from the earth by hand. It keeps us fit.
