The Keveral Community of Growers brings together innovative farms located in South East Cornwall

Keveral Farm sits high above the South Cornwall coast near Seaton, around five miles from Looe. It has supported a community of growers since the early seventies becoming one of the first Soil Association Certified farms.

The produce boxes are packed at Keveral Farm and is run by a collective of growers from Keveral itself as well as local growers from around South East Cornwall.  The packing barn sits in the middle of the action on the farm, surrounded by the apple press, chickens and a range of other buildings that the community have big plans for. Down a short and winding lane a series of polytunnels huddle together and supply some of the best heritage tomatoes and winter salads that you will ever taste.

Bill – is our contact point for customers, as well as delivering to Plymouth and Saltash. He grows in his tunnels and outside areas at Keveral Farm. He specialises in mushroom production and runs courses in Permaculture. He will be growing salads, beans and cucumbers and shiitake mushrooms.

They will be supplying potatoes and brassicas. They also supply occasional Non Organic punnets of micro greens and salads which cannot be registered Organic as they are grown in compost on staging. (Crops cannot be called Organic if they don’t spend 80% of their life in the soil). No agri chemicals are used to grow these crops.
