It’s Organic September Saturday on the 16th September!
We are celebrating by inviting you to come and meet the team at St Mawgan Vintage Rally!
We will have a stall with a sample of our organic goods and a few surprises!
Come and meet the team, have a chat about how we farm and why we choose to be organic. Look forward to seeing you!

Bees are of utmost importance to us at Gluvian. They are part of the indigenous ecosystem and are vital to the pollination of our plants and trees. Being an Organic farm, we don’t use pesticides, so our wildflowers, wild spaces, orchard and hedgerows are abundant with native species which the busy bees thrive in and it’s a healthy habitat for them!
Despite the major insecticide companies insisting that the chemicals they produce are ‘safe’, independent scrutiny from major field trials, have produced reports which are conclusive that the use of pesticides damage the survival of bee colonies, accounting in part for their decline. See here for a recent article from the Guardian.
So what can you do to help? The Soil Association has launched it’s summer campaign #BeeOrganic which we have been following closely and updating social media with images of our little friends on the farm. It doesn’t take a lot to plant bee friendly species in a window box or garden and feel good about being part of their recovery!
The past few weekends we have been busy getting our Organic vegetable garden ready for the new season of planting. Today, runner beans, chard and potatoes went in. Lots more planting to do before the Bank Holiday is out!
Come and join us in the shop this week for Christmas Cake and a mulled tipple! Seasons greetings to you all.
