Welcome to Banc Organics!

Banc Organics is a not-for-profit community supported food scheme which grows Organic* vegetables and fruit in Bancffosfelen and distributes them in the Gwendraeth valleys. Our members get a weekly Organic fruit and veg bag delivered to a pick up point near their home. Much of our work is done by volunteers, and we encourage our members to get involved in growing their food, as well as getting to know each other.

We are a small group of people who want to provide fresh, Organic, local food for ourselves, our families and our communities.We are now in our seventh year of producing vegetables and fruit from our two growing sites in Bancffosfelen. Most of the hard work so far has been done by dedicated volunteers, though we hope to eventually pay our main workers for more of their time.

The idea is that our members tell us what they’d like us to grow and we grow it for them. Our members commit to buying the produce in a weekly vegetable bag and we commit to supplying a great value bag of fresh Organic vegetables every week all year round.

In This Week's Bag

14th June 2018

The bags are really packed with good things now - broad beans in full flow, French beans starting, as are tomatoes and mini cucumbers; strawberries galore!

We will be giving green onions this week - which really means new season onions with the stems still on them. I love this time of year just for these onions - use the green tops as well - plenty of lovely oniony taste and not too strong. If they start to get untidy, just pull them off and use the onions as you normally would.

Still some more carrots from the poly-tunnel, and then we will start thinning the outdoor crops. We may have a few turnips this week; still some kohlrabi left for ordering.

Salads are difficult for the grower! Those lovely lettuces all came at once and then went to seed quickly in the hot sun - we are waiting for the next batch! Just a few multicolour lettuces for the lucky ones!

Bought in fruit has been lovely quality. Cherries are beautiful,melons and plums going down in price; forelle pears now available.

Bags this week will likely contain a selection from potatoes, onions, carrots, sugar peas, tomatoes, mini cucumbers, broad beans, French beans, lettuce, courgettes, spring onions, broccoli, strawberries, mixed salad, turnips, kohlrabi, celery or red cabbage.

Please remember to return bags and punnets for recycling; please place orders by 8pm on Friday.

Here are some opportunities to get more involved with Banc:

Every Tuesday morning we meet to garden and work (Suzy in the office; Sue and Martin in the garden). Midway through the morning we stop for 11ses, including from time to time treats brought in by volunteers.

Every second Tuesday evening (between 8pm and 10pm normally) the core group meets. We would love some reps from our volunteers and members to join, so if you're interested please let me know.


We have a new manager for the facebook page.
