Vegbox

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.

However, due to COVID-19, the lack of labour, the associated logistical challenges, etc., our 2020 vegbox season now only includes Small Vegbox Subscriptions. Our planned 2020 season was to include:

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.

Vegbox distribution

Vegboxes can be collected from Jubilee Farm on Thursdays or Fridays, or in Whitehead on Fridays. Jubilee raised free range pork can also be collected at the same time in August/September.

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).
