Bosavern Community Farm

Bosavern Farm was a Cornwall Council owned organic farm on the outskirts of St Just which had been used to encourage new farmers into agriculture since the First World war. In 2009 Cornwall Council considered selling the site but after representation and proposals from the local community a short lease was granted to the Lands End Peninsula Community Land Trust. This was to give time for the community to show that it could manage the farm and to raise the funds to purchase the site. This has now happened and the purchase went through in March 2014. They grow vegetables, and keep chickens, pigs, and turkeys and sell these through veg boxes and a farm gate shop. There are plenty of opportunities for volunteering!

Bosparva Bakery

The Bosparva Bakery was created by Jordan Jones in 2013 at the age of 18. After a childhood of baking heavy cakes and butterfly buns with her Granny in Cornwall it was time for her to follow her dream of becoming a baker. With only one oven in a small home kitchen she began making bread and cakes for small local markets and shops. Jordan's main aim when opening the bakery was to produce a wide range of organic breads that everyone could love for every occasion. With this in mind she's created signature loaves like her 'Earl Grey Tea and Apricot' loaf or 'Carrot and fresh Coriander,' both of which fly out at food festivals and markets. Two years she was running a purpose built bakery making over 50 types of sweet and savory breads and a wide range of cakes and delicate french macarons. She attends Farmers' Market every week in Penzance, St Ives and Pendeen.

McFaddens Butchers and Bakers

The Mcfadden family are proud farmers and have been farming their own 42 acres of land since the family business was established. This has always enabled them to rear their own pigs and sheep in order to supply their shop and bakery with guaranteed quality local Cornish produce. They provide complete traceability of all livestock from birth to the butcher’s block. They lamb their sheep between October and March and this enables them to have a steady supply of the very best quality lamb throughout the year. They also keep a constant supply of healthy pigs which are traditionally fattened and used for their own shop and Mcfadden’s products. Master butcher and owner Kevin Mcfadden will only purchase the finest quality beef from Truro livestock market every Wednesday. Kevin takes great care in selecting local produce and always ensures that meat is sourced from a high standard of breeding, therefore guaranteeing they have complete traceability for their beef.

PEAT Project

The PEaT (Plant, Eat and Teach) Project is an open gardening programme which includes a wide range of informal learning activities aimed at helping people gain valuable skills and acquire accredited qualifications if wished, whilst promoting a healthier lifestyle.

Various accredited (NOCN) and non-accredited courses are delivered throughout the project with the emphasis always on providing a training area where people of all levels of abilities and skills will be able to integrate happily with activities on site and with other volunteers.
Volunteers benefit through increased self-confidence and self-esteem, gaining new skills, enhanced employability if in the job market plus improved health and wellbeing through exercise out in the open air which is proven to be beneficial to both mind and body.

Penwith and Helston Organic Gardeners and Growers

POGG is the Penwith part of this organisation and was founded in 1990. Both groups are affiliated to Garden Organic, the national organic association, and they have the same aims: to help their members gain from each other’s experiences of gardening and growing using organic methods by pooling ideas and knowledge. They also aim to promote the organic movement to a wider audience, as well as among manufacturers and retailers. POGG and HOGG work closely together, with the structure of both groups kept to the minimum necessary. They hold friendly informal meetings which are an ideal opportunity for exchanging tips, contacts and information. Summer meetings take the form of visits to gardens (members’ and others); speakers and topics of interest are arranged for the winter months.

The Co-operative Food

If you're going to be using a supermarket then the least worst one that you can use has to be The Co-operative Food. As part of the largest consumer co-op in the world it's owned by its membership. That could very easily include you as it doesn't cost anything to join and if you have your card swiped every time that you purchase something then you'll receive your share of the "dividend" at the end of the year. As one of the smaller players in the market The Co-operative is unlikely to be as cheap as the really big supermarkets but it's surprising how much comes back in the form of the dividend and other member benefits making the difference not as great. Most importantly you know where the money you spend there is going and - as a member - you have the opportunity to vote for people to go on the area, regional and national committees which control the organisation. The Co-operative is well represented in Penwith - of the local stores the largest is in Hayle.

The Cornish Chicken Company

The Cornish Chicken Co started on a family farm in Morvah in 2013. They'd noticed a gap in the market for great quality chicken produced in Cornwall. Until then all the chicken sold in Cornwall came predominately from Devon. They now supply many of the best restaurants in Cornwall. They also want to share their delicious free-range chicken with domestic kitchens; and you can find us them at various farmers’ markets and farm shops across the county.

W W O O F

WWOOF stands for World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms and WWOOF UK holds a list of organic farms, gardens and smallholdings, all offering food and accommodation in exchange for practical help on their land. Hosts range from a low impact woodland settlement to a 600 hectare mixed holding with on-site farm shop, cafe and education centre. Hosts do not expect you to know a lot about farming when you arrive, but they do expect you to be willing to learn and able to fit in with their lifestyle. All WWOOF hosts must sign a declaration stating that they are farming using ecologically sound methods. Some are also certified organic or biodynamic by national bodies. The list of hosts is available by joining WWOOF UK for a membership fee. Once you have the list, it is up to you to contact hosts directly to arrange your stay. Volunteers do not pay to stay with hosts and hosts do not pay volunteers for their help. There are several local WWOOF hosts.

West Cornwall Food

This site will help you in your quest to buy and eat local food. You know that you have bought locally when you can find out who produced your food. Local food will also be seasonal food. Global food distribution has meant that we can buy almost any food at any time of the year. Whilst this has given us far greater choice in the food we eat, the cost of this has been great: vegetables are picked before they are ripe; varieties are chosen for long shelf life and transportation instead of taste; and food is overpackaged and treated.
