Local Veg Bag Scheme & Free-Range Meat
Contact Us

We’re proud to provide nourishing, sustainable, local food to local people in our area.

One of our missions at The Husbandry School is to help with a transition; we need to move towards a future where lands and communities care for, look after and belong together more than they do at present. We believe that we need thriving land communities, and thriving small scale, local agriculture.

Our Local Veg Bag Scheme

In response to the pressure on food supply and the difficulty felt by many during the COVID-19 to access fresh produce, in 2020 we began an organic veg bag delivery service to our local community in the Ashburton & Buckfastleigh area.

Each week we supply bags filled with nutritious, seasonal and delicious vegetables and herbs, lovingly grown here at The Husbandry School, in Bickington. 

We offer two sizes of bags – Standard (ideal for 2 people) for £13 and Large (for 4 people) for £17 per week. 

If you are interested in getting involved in our weekly deliveries, feel free to call on 01626 821145 or email us at produce@husbandry.co.uk for more information.

Husbandry Free-Range Meat

Our livestock are reared on our land with no nasties, plenty of space to roam and lots of care.

We maintain a herd of around 30 Boer Goats, a flock of around 40 sheep and a small family of Tamworth Pigs, from which we sell a variety of meat and goat & sheep skin rugs.

Our students on our Re-engage & Re-inspire programme are involved with the care of our animals, taking part in feeding, cleaning out, welfare checks and lambing & kidding season. 

Caring for animals supports our empathy for living creatures, our environment and each other, and helps children to engage with concepts around our food system, nutrition, cookery, science and other learning areas.
