We believe that changing the way we produce and distribute food is fundamental to solving the world’s most pressing social and ecological problems.
We are Nicky & Lily, a mother/daughter duo.
The Edible Acre is a small regenerative no-dig market garden set upon a 1 acre site, which was once used as a plant nursery.
We have over 40 no-dig beds and 2 large glasshouses used for food production for our veg box scheme and wholesale to local chefs & restaurants.
We work with the land in a re-generative way, using Organic principles and techniques to create an abundant garden and nourishing food. We specialise in salad, herbs, an array of vegetables and interesting and heritage variety tomatoes. Growing vegetables has always been a fundamental in our lives and creating The Edible Acre has been a chance for us to share this foundation and get fresh, quality & local produce to our community.
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.
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.
