Grace & Flavour is a community single urban farm, run as a co-operative. Working together we grow our own veg, and share the crops when they come. We also have enough space for about 20 allotments.
The purpose of Grace and Flavour is to grow food for the people who live and/or work in the surrounding areas. Crops grown are distributed to those working on the project, those wishing to buy it (through local retailers), and 10% is set aside for free distribution to those in our community who do not have access to fresh, locally grown produce.
We are a not-for-profit enterprise - all proceeds from the sale of our food are used to cover costs and to build up the business. In addition to being of great value to our local community, Grace and Flavour also addresses ecology concerns about the distance that our food has to travel from farm to plate. Currently, the way that fruit and vegetables are produced and distributed not only increases the amount of road traffic and contributes to climate change; it also creates a disconnect between producer and consumer that results in poor quality food and high prices, with not enough attention being paid to legitimate customer concerns about food safety, animal welfare, and damage to the environment. We aim to produce food that is tasty, wholesome, and grown in a way that is in harmony with nature and respectful of animal welfare. Since we are a non-profit making organization, our food will also be reasonably priced.
