Gerald Miles – Caerhys Organic Farm – http://www.coca-csa.org

Caerhys Organic Community Agriculture (COCA) is an agricultural scheme run for and supported by the local community. COCA members share delicious organic food grown in partnership with local farmers.

Our concept is simple and based on mutual benefit and shared risk.  Sharers pay a monthly membership, throughout the year, and once a week visit Caerhys Organic Farm (close to St David’s) or the nearest pick-up point to where they live to collect their share of freshly harvested seasonal vegetables.

Apart from a colourful array of vegetables, sharers can also buy fresh local produce – organic milk, cheese, eggs and free-range organic meats – and other locally sourced organic fruit and vegetables.  We work with nearby organic farmers to ensure the range and quality of produce available to members is the best it can be.

Our vision

  • A community of people sharing and supporting organic food production, in a spirit of friendship and trust

Our aims

  • To produce organic vegetables, fruits, flowers and herbs, and enable wider access to local organic meat, dairy products and eggs
  • To enable members to live and eat well in an organic and sustainable way
  • To support sustainable food production in the local area
  • To grow a community around the project based on shared work, social activity and a spirit of friendship
  • To develop in whatever way the members feel will help achieve these aims

Our principles

  • That organic food production provides the best and most nutritious food for all, maintains fertile soils and ensures a healthy, diverse environment into the future
  • That supporting local organic farmers and producers is worthwhile for local consumers
  • That co-operation, shared risks and shared benefits, and a spirit of friendship are fundamental to the operation of the group
  • That decisions should be arrived at by consensus wherever possible
