Plotgate Community Farm

Barton St David, Somerset

This will be their fourth year as a Community Supported Agriculture membership organisation committed to truly sustainable food production.

“We hold social and educational events for members and visitors, and host volunteers on at least 3 days each week.  The farm is run collaboratively by the 3 co-director growers Amy, Dan and Jane with support from volunteers and other members.”

As well as vegetable and some fruit production, the 9.2 acre off-grid farm is home to the pigs, chickens, and sheep that play important roles in the land management whilst also providing food and fleeces. The production system embraces human-scale, simple, effective technologies and low-input methods to care for the land while growing food with and for our community.
