How we grow
At the Rosewood Acres market garden, we are committed to growing the freshest, most nutrient-dense food possible. We ensure this by harvesting other in ne morning or the night before and growing all our own veg from seed in our own nursery to be planted out in our ’no-dig’ permanent beds. We don’t use any chemicals and follow organic principles, although we are not certified, preferring instead to be certified by our community of supportive customers.
Come on one of our farm tours and we’ll happily show you how we grow your veg!
What we offer in 2022…
All our veg will be available from our Farm Shop at the front of the farm, first come - first served,
Fridays 10am to 7pm. We sell everything by the bunch with simple pricing (either £1.50, £2.00 or £2.50). If you can’t make Fridays we will always set aside a portion of the harvest for collection on Saturday, with an honesty box set up.
If you wish to help out in the gardens, we hold a regular volunteer day on Wednesdays. For more info check out our volunteer page.
If you wish to support us in other ways, take a look at our membership package, where you can receive discounts on all our workshops, invitations to ‘farm feasts’ and more!

Q & A
What is “no-dig” growing and why is it so important?
'No-dig' leaves the soil undisturbed. Unbroken soil structures nurture organic matter such as bacterial and mycelial networks. This helps drainage and aeration and mimics natural patterns.
How do I pay for my Veg Box?
Payment can be taken when you collect by cash or card or by monthly standing order at the beginning of the month. For more details see our terms and conditions or send us an email.
Are you Organic?
We use Organic standards as a guideline - we are organic with a lower case o - and strive to go further than organic. We take soil management more seriously than is needed for organic certification.
We believe in customer-certification for small farms; if you want to see how we farm, come on one of our tours! Organic certification is expensive for small farms, and is more appropriate for larger farms that cannot have a direct connection with their customers.
How much should good food cost?
Farming environmentally produces healthier soils, food, and humans, but has some higher costs. Our prices are needed to earn a living wage, cover costs, and remain competitive. Our farm will publish transparent financial reports annually.
How do you grow vegetables 'regeneratively'?
Annual vegetable farming in high rotation, even in a 'no-dig' set up, requires high quantities of compost and inputs. Our system is sustainable which is the most you can ask for.
The aim of our farm is to introduce more perennials and less annuals. Perennials do not have to be replanted every year. We will place a stronger emphasis on tree crops like nuts and fruits combined with pasture.
