Swallows Market Garden is helping to rebuild local food economies

We believe that changing the way we produce and distribute food is fundamental to solving the world’s most pressing social and ecological problems.

About Swallows Market Garden

We grow the veg we love to cook with and we're aiming to put the best of the season in your box as well as keeping it varied.

We are growing regeneratively which means we're always aiming to have living roots in the ground, keep the soil covered and grow a diversity of plants to build soil and increase bio-diversity. We use compost from Knepp's regenerative farm and as well as feeding people, we are also feeding the microbes!

We are always enthusiastic to talk about what we're growing, how we grow it and how to cook what we grow. Why not buy a box and come and see where your delicious veggies are grown? You can find us every Saturday at the pick-up point in the car park next to Swallows Market Garden, we look forward to see you there.

Fair prices for farmers and artisan food producers is vital

We pay our suppliers at least 50% of the retail value for any products we buy in, and when dealing with wholesalers, we check to make sure they pay fair prices to their growers.

The benefits of buying local

Local food supports local economies. Food grown in the local community supports local jobs and encourages variety in our diets. It also requires less transportation, so it's fresher and has a smaller environmental footprint.
