Henry and Liv are proud to be part of the Harvest Workers’ Co-op; a group of seven (Martin, Sara, Sophie, Jo & Kevin) like minded people. Together we run an organic farm shop in Okehampton and are launching an exciting programme of educational events on everything food and farming.
The Co-op aims to:
- Provide access to affordable local organic and sustainable food
- Support local producers using organic and ecological methods of farming
- Enable understanding of the social, environmental and health issues of food through educational activities
- Contribute to building food sovereignty and community strength
For us at Down Farm it is providing an excellent platform for us to sell our produce; currenlty you will see our salad, tomatoes, leafty greens, cucumbers, cabbages and blueberries on the shevles of the co-op. It is also an amazing supportive framework to help us run a shop: we defintiley couldn’t do it alone, and our other co-op members have helped ensure we are running a fruitful business.
The co-op is more than just a shop, we are going to be running workshops and events to get our community talking about where our food comes from, how is it farmed, and what effects does that have on our environemnt, community, local economy and life?
The shop is open:
Monday – Thursday 9 – 5
Friday – Saturday 9 – 6
Harvest Farm Shop, 5 Red Lion Yard, Okehampton, EX20 1WL
