Chagfood, Devon

Chagfood, started in 2009, rents three acres of land from two local farmers in Dartmoor National Park. They successfully applied for planning permission to put up 3 polytunnels and 2 sheds. Two part-time growers, with the help of volunteers, produce more than 50 varieties of seasonal veg supplying 50 local households. They have recently planted 20 apple trees and over 50 fruit trees. In order to reduce the impact of machineryon the land, and the use of fossil fuels, Samson the horse ploughs the fields and pulls the cart loaded with fresh produce boxes into the nearby village each week.
