Barcombe Nurseries

In 1997, Adrian Halstead, always a keen allotment gardener, took a leap of faith and bought the nursery in rural Barcombe, four miles west of Lewes and twelve miles north of Brighton. He began the conversion to organic status under the auspices of the Soil Association with the idea of starting a local vegetable box scheme.

And here we are, still going strong! A crew of ten permanent employees, living in the area, from all walks of life, sharing the varied, relentless tasks that producing a veg box offers.
