News from Woodside about their vegetable box scheme, which is just about to start up for the 2022 season. They have a few spaces left. See below for details about how to join and order a weekly box:
We are nearly back with our popular CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) box scheme.
Woodside Arran CIC is a non-profit social enterprise farm in Kildonan on the Isle of Arran.
Focusing on local food production we currently have a market garden, rare breed free range pigs and rotationally grazed free-range egg hens. Our aims are to tackle some of the issues surrounding food security on the island as well as to get as many people as possible involved in growing delicious organic food. By becoming a veg box member you will support local jobs, encourage further education opportunities, and have a distinct voice on how the farm develops over the coming years.
For 2022 we are running for 14 weeks from the 7th of July to the 6th of October with delivery every Thursday. You can either opt for a home delivery if you live between Kildonan and Brodick, or a Farm or Vending machine pick up if you are out with our delivery areas.
