22/04/20: PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO LABOUR AND LOGISTICAL CHALLENGES ASSOCIATED WITH THE COVID-19 CRISIS, THERE ARE LIKELY TO BE SIGNIFICANT CHANGES TO OUR 2020 VEGBOX SCHEME AS ADVERTISED BELOW. WE HOPE TO CONFIRM THESE CHANGES IN DUE COURSE, THOUGH THE SITUATION REMAINS FLUID AND UNCERTAIN. PLEASE CONTACT US WITH YOUR QUERIES.

We grow it. You eat it.

Receive fresh, high quality, chemical free (grown to organic standards but not certified as organic) vegetables from us, all grown on Northern Ireland’s first community-owned farm.

Through the first Community-Supported Agriculture scheme in Northern Ireland, we believe that we are ‘putting the culture back into agriculture’ (to quote ourselves), and we’d love to have your custom and support in doing so.

How it works

Our vegboxes are sold through a Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA) scheme, meaning you sign up for the whole season, receiving either weekly or bi-weekly veg boxes (FAQs from 2019).

Our 2020 program runs 30 weeks, from June to Christmas.

Small Vegbox Subscription with 6 items per box costs £240 (£120 bi-weekly). Suited to singles or couples.

Medium Vegbox Subscription with 8 items per box costs £300 (£150 bi-weekly). Suited to small families or veggie loving couples.

Large Vegbox Subscription with 10 items per box costs £360 (£180 bi-weekly). Suited to larger families or veggie loving couples.

These can be paid for in 1 – 6 installments.

A vegbox can be picked up at the farm or at our other collection points.

Vegbox distribution

Vegboxes can be collected from Jubilee Farm on Thursdays or Fridays, or from one of our other collection points on Thursdays or Fridays in Whitehead, Greenisland or Ballygally. Jubilee raised free range pork can also be collected at the same time.

Alternatively, if you don’t want to commit to a full vegbox CSA subscription, you can buy individual items from Jubilee Farm every Friday, as part of Veggie Fridays (cash only).

Please Note: We have limited quantities available currently for gate sales but this will increase after May/June.
