The Farmoury, a community space and home to The Veg Box aims to provide healthy local produce by bridging the gap that has grown over the last 40 years between farmers of the land and consumers of the food.
We believe that produce grown in a simpler, less industrialised way, creates food for healthier family meals. This is the basis of all well-being and therefore through our choices we can begin to see the change that is needed for a sustainable agricultural system and future generation’s health.
Choosing naturally grown, pesticide-free, organic, locally grown produce builds stronger communities by supporting those who are at the root of our food system. It is imperative that we support those who work the land in a traditional and non-exploitive way. Shopping at The Veg Box is an experience. Sometimes it’s meeting the very people who grow your food, other times it can be learning about the organic farming process, permaculture and so much more. It’s understanding the value of each and every piece of produce you buy and consume whilst appreciating what this tiny island has to offer, all in the middle of the beautiful rural north of Manikata. Prior to COVID restrictions, the Farmoury also held eco-friendly events encouraging a more circular and sustainable economy such as flea markets and thrift shop treasures, as well as workshops with local educators and artisans.
Adjusting the size of our weekly shopping basket as well as understanding the process and produce could make all the difference to a healthier society and planet.
