Cotswold Market Garden was founded in 2019 as a partnership between career-changer, James Butterworth, and Jonty and Mel Brunyee of Conygree Farm.
Our mission is to grow delicious, seasonal, organic vegetables that are eaten fresh within 10 miles of the farm. This way we can do our bit to build a truly local and more sustainable food system.
The market garden occupies a 2.5 acre site at Conygree Farm, an organic and regenerative farm on the National Trust Sherborne Park Estate (www.conygreefarm.co.uk). Throughout the year we grow around 50 types of vegetables and over 100 varieties using only hand tools and following 'no-dig'/'no-till' principles. Although labour intensive, this allows us to maximise the amount of food that can be grown on a small area and helps support more people working on the land.
Our produce is sold through our veg box delivery scheme and through a pop-up farm shop at Conygree Farm on Saturdays. At the farm shop you can also buy organic ‘Pasture-for-Life’ beef and lamb, free-range rare-breed pork and wildflower honey (all from the farm), as well as a growing range of local produce including sourdough bread, cheese and eggs.
Our Organic Mixed Salad bags - our speciality - are available year round and can be found in a range of local shops (see the Wholesale page for more details).
