What is a Cyrenians Farm Organic Veg Bag?

Our Fruit and Veg Bags give your household a supply of fresh, seasonal and Organic produce while directly supporting the work of Cyrenians tackling the causes and consequences of homelessness.

How does the scheme work and how much does it cost?

You can choose a Veg Only bag (£15) or Veg + Fruit (£22) on a flexible weekly or fortnightly subscription.

Everything found in the bags is grown Organically by us at Cyrenians Farm, or specially selected by us from other Organic Farms in the UK where possible or further afield, depending on seasonal availability.

What’s in the bag?

All Bags contain the staples of potatoes (1kg), onions (500g) and carrots (750g), and an additional 5 – 7 portions of seasonal vegetables. Veg + Fruit bags contain the same veg as Veg Only bags with an additional 3 – 4 portions of fruit.

Here’s an example of a Veg + Fruit Bag in autumn:

Potatoes (1kg), Onions (500g), Rainbow Carrots (750g), Butternut Squash (750g) Salad Mix (150g), Rainbow Chard (220g), Yellow Courgettes (350g), Italian Gold Beans (250g), Coriander (25g), Purple Garlic (bulb), Apples (600g), Pears (500g), Lemons (200g).

Which option should I go for and how do I make changes?

For households of 1 – 2 we recommend choosing a fortnightly subscription to our Veg Only or Veg + Fruit Bags, for households of 3 or more we recommend a weekly subscription. Entirely flexible, you can pause, change or stop your subscription at any time to make it work for you by contacting us, just try to give us at least 7 working days’ notice of any changes.

By trusting us to grow and curate the contents of each bag across the seasons, we can build stronger relationships between farmers and consumers, which means better value for everyone.

If there’s anything you really don’t like or can’t eat and we’ll do our best to swap that item for something else just let us know.

What is so good about them?

We believe in the power of food to change people’s lives for the better. By choosing Veg Bag from Cyrenians Farm you are supporting our work distributing surplus food, delivering community pantries and cook clubs and offering free access to farming and rural skills employability training for young people on our community farm.

All of the produce grown on our farm and found in our bags is grown to Organic standards, a set of standards in farming which is better for the planet, better for nature and wildlife, and better for people.

A study from the New Economics Foundation and Soil Association found that for every £1 spent by customers on Organic veg schemes like ours, a further £3.70 is generated in social, economic & environmental value, which we think is better for everyone.
