WE ARE NOW SIGNING NEW MEMBERS FOR 2012 SEASON!
SPECIAL OFFER!!! SAVE €50 BY RECEIVING FRESH CUT FLOWERS JULY- SEPT WHEN YOU PAY YOUR FULL YEARLY SUBSCRIPTION IN ADVANCE WHEN SIGNING UP.
Become a member
As a community supported agriculture scheme, members sign up annually for the full season (veg supplied from June to December). A percentage of the overall cost of their veg is paid in the spring in the form of a membership fee. This money is used directly by us to buy seed and equipment for the season ahead and it plays an invaluable role in supporting us as small scale farmers. Because of this initial subsidy, once members start receiving their veg, each week will be just €12.50. These weekly payments will be paid via direct debit (unless an alternative has been arranged directly with us) over 30 weeks starting 4th June 2012. These payments must be completed in order to bring the balance to the full yearly subscription price of €450 for weekly members and €227.50 for fortnightly members.
A delivery service is also available with an additional charge of €3 per delivery (please contact us in advance to check that you are within our delivery area)

1) Choose what type of membership suits you best….

** SPECIAL OFFER!!!By paying your full yearly subscription upfront when you sign up you will join our cut flower scheme and receive FREE cut flowers with your veg July-Sept. This is a pilot scheme to grow and distribute fresh flowers between our members of our flower scheme each week in the summer. I will be aiming to provide two bunches of cut flowers each week per member, however, if the harvest is good this may increase/larger bunches in some weeks and likewise at other times there may be fewer. Flower varieties to be grown are Sunflower, Sweetpea, Dahlia, Larkspur, Cosmos, Nigella, Snapdragon, Cornflower and strawflower. Memberships for this scheme are limited to just 10 in its first year. Additional memberships, not taken up through this promotion, will be sold at €50 per share.
