Richard started growing organic vegetables in 2000, delivering just a handful of boxes in Goathurst, Enmore, Spaxton and Bridgwater. Remke joined me in 2003 and together we formed Plowright Organic and began to increase our production and the number of boxes. In 2004 we received second place in the ‘Organic box scheme of the year' awards and were runners up in the Somerset life ‘best organic product and trader' award 2006. We moved to Stowey Rocks farm in 2006 which allowed us to expand our growing area to about 25 acres each year. We continued growing vegetables for our own vegbox scheme and also began supplying wholesale markets. Growing organic vegetables is hard work and requires attention to detail but we would not want to grow them any other way. Our box scheme enables us to produce affordable organic food on a small scale. We use minimal packaging and sell locally to reduce food miles. Ultimately we want to develop a sustainable organic system to provide good quality seasonal vegetables to local people and in so doing, help to re-make the connection between the land and people. We manage all the land at Stowey Rocks to organic standards and are certified organic by the Bristol based Soil Association certification Ltd. License number UK5 /AB17796.
