Our organic food network

We grow as much produce on Sutton Community Farm as possible and to keep a good variety of vegetables in our box, we source organic food from other local producers. Here are some of the farms we work with:

A G Brockman

A G Brockman is Kent’s longest-running organic farm. It’s a family farm of around 200 acres lying in a valley of the North Downs between the villages of Chartham and Garlinge Green. Traditional crop rotation is used for fertility building as well as weed, pest and disease control. The land has now been free of pesticides, herbicides and fungicides for up to five decades, during this period the soils have improved, showing higher organic matter levels as well as increased biological activity and improved soil structure. Crop yields have also increased over this period. The farm practices biodynamic farming and places great importance on breed and variety selection for quality and taste.

Wholesalers

Perry Court (A G Brockman)

As well as growing their own organic food, Brockman’s also wholesale organic food under the guise of Perry Court. They source fruit, vegetables, herbs and other produce from other farms in the UK. We source our biodynamic eggs from them – which come from Orchard Eggs in Forest Row.
