Meanwood Valley Urban Farm is helping to rebuild local food economies

We believe that changing the way we produce and distribute food is fundamental to solving the world’s most pressing social and ecological problems.

About Meanwood Valley Urban Farm

We are part of one of the oldest and largest city farms in the UK and we are 1 mile from Leeds city centre. Proud to be home to animals, gardens, and flourishing woodland and provide a space for community and environmental projects.

Proud to train the next generation of food growers through our volunteer and trainee programmes.

Proud to be a small-scale producer, and passionate about growing fruit, vegetables, salads and herbs for our local community.

We absolutely commit to a chemical-free, living soil approach to our growing, we will not do anything other than this, for the health of ourselves and the planet.

This is a new website and currently we are unable to change some of the content. This may be confusing and apologies for this! Please note: We DO NOT deliver and you collect weekly, NOT fortnightly. We DO NOT allow pauses or customisation of your boxes. Every box type gets the same contents in it for every person. If you have any questions regarding the scheme, please email [email protected]

The benefits of buying local

Local food supports local economies. Food grown in the local community supports local jobs and encourages variety in our diets. It also requires less transportation, so it's fresher and has a smaller environmental footprint.
