Fare of the Field has evolved over years of mainly women and babies, gathering at the Chagfood field and enjoying flowers. We would harvest and bunch flowers to add to the Chagfood market garden veg shares. Then we began selling flower shares as an optional extra, as well as proving posies for local pubs and restaurants.
Alongside so many wonderful friends who have helped with the flowers, I would like to say a special thank you to Chinnie, Ruth and Izzy, who have been the backbones of what is now Fare of the Field.
Chinnie Kingsbury is now starting a business growing organic medicinal herbs alongside their wonderful campsite-
Izzy Knowles is a talented ethical clothing and dress maker. www.isabelknowles.com
Ruth Knowles is the mother of all mothers and we hope will remain a regular presence in the flower field…
As we are part of a community farm, the field is always a social place to be. Like the bees, people come flocking to be amongst the flowers
