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

17th May 2018

Its an exciting week for lots of reasons! Our own produce is really starting to come through.

Mange tout peas and broad beans from the tunnels: also lettuces, beetroot, a few strawberries, and very soon spring onions, courgettes, calabrese - carrots! Bought in produce is equally exciting: lovely summer fruits, cherries, peaches, nectarines from Spain; also more choice of apples from the Southern hemisphere - and don't forget our own rhubarb, which is lovely quality.

We've been very busy the last two weeks planting out the crops for late summer and autumn; that is ongoing & very exciting too in a different way!

This weeks bags should include a selection from potatoes, onions, carrots,, broad beans, sugar peas, beetroot, lettuce, cucumber, rainbow or Swiss chard, garlic and herbs, mushrooms and rhubarb or strawberries; and possibly broccoli, mixed salad, celery or courgettes.

Hope you get the chance to enjoy the sun!

Please remember to place orders by 6pm 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.
