Locavore Farms

Locavore Farms

Compared to most farms we have quite an unusual set up. We grow on three sites, which are all within 15 miles of one of our shops. Our largest site is Left Field, on a windy hillside overlooking Glasgow; we also grow on an ex-council site in Bellahouston park and have recently purchased land at Narrowboat Farm.

We manage all of our growing to organic principles. Left Field and Bellahouston are accredited by the Soil Association, and Narrowboat Farm is “in conversion”, which means we follow organic standards there, but the site is not yet accredited.

We previously grew at a site in Rouken Glen Park, but have now passed this on to Tenement Veg, a small growing collective. We also have a site called the Croft in Queens Park. This is where our growing began all back in 2013.

I love the variety and quality we get from our weekly delivery, and have found our food waste is greatly reduced by using Locavore's recipes to use up our well-stocked box of veg every week!
