Cradled between the ancient landmark of the Wittenham Clumps, you will find the lovingly tended fields of Cultivate. One of the earliest Farm Step tenants of the Earth Trust, Cultivate began its mission to bring local food to the people of Oxfordshire back in 2012. Now, 3 years later and with tons of experience under our belts, we are proud of the transformation and output from our 10 acres.
Our core grower team is led by Dan who, together with Made and Roger work to nurture the soil and tend the crops, ably helped by regular volunteers such as Jenny and others on the monthly Volunteer Days. Growing over 20 crops, you will always find the most outrageously fresh veg on the VegVan – often harvested to our order on the day we sell them to you!!
Fed up of being sat behind a desk, Dan sees organic farming as representing an opportunity to make a living within the natural long term limits of our world. When we asked Dan about his favourite vegetable he said: “You can’t beat mixed salad leaves for freshness and taste”.It’s no surprise therefore, that Cultivate’s salad bags are a weekly sell out!
