Become a Member
Everyone is welcome to join in and enjoy the farm, including non-members.
If you feel that the costs below are too much, then please contact Carol about our bursary scheme to help members on a low income. Let us know if you know someone who would like to make use of this bursary. We also have a ‘work-share’ system that allows one or two members to provide work of real value to SCA in return for a veg share. If you would like to apply for this, please email Carol for an application form.
The Stroud Community Agriculture project also welcomes people who would like to join the community purely for the social benefits. As the project succeeds we hope it will expand to other farms and enterprises so that more people can get involved in this way of farming.
You can choose one of two ways to join SCA:
1. As a member only (which supports the general running of the project) at £3 (£2 concessions) per household per month.
As a member you can buy organic, pasture fed meat and eggs and take part in various farm events throughout the year.
2. As a member with a weekly veggie box (share of seasonal vegetables) at £3 (£2) for the membership + £46 for a single share (most members find that this is enough for 2 adults) and £40 for additional shares per month.
There is currently a waiting list for the veg share.
As of 1st November the full share price will increase to £60.
In addition to vegetables, all members can buy competitively priced frozen organic, pasture fed meat, all of it raised on the farm. They can also buy eggs from Rachel at Cultivate Abundance who keeps her chickens just down the road; as well as staple veg (such as potatoes, carrots and onions) all of which is bought in from local, organic suppliers.
Since the farm needs supporting throughout the year, monthly payments need to continue even if you are on holiday. Members usually arrange for a friend to collect their vegetables when they are away. If you decide to stop your standing order, then you may need to join a waiting list before you can rejoin. SCA needs three months’ notice for cancellation of a vegetable share. This ensures that the farm is fully supported and gives us time to recruit someone to take your place.
Please complete and submit the Joining Form below and Carol will contact you via email with information on setting up a standing order and scheduling your first pick-up.
