Why do I have to pay even when I’m away?

The scheme relies on members paying their share of the costs of growing their food. It’s like paying a subscription to a club which entitles you to a share of the farm’s harvest. We encourage members to give their veg to someone else if they are away. Perhaps a house or pet sitter or a friend who is interested in joining the scheme.

If you are away a lot a fortnightly bag might work best for you and you can change your collection week if needs be. Some people choose to share their bag with friends or family so there is generally someone around to eat the produce.
