Rhos Market Garden’s organic veg bags provide a weekly selection of organic vegetables and fruit to the local Powys community from £5 per week. We also have a market stall in Presteigne (Friday), Knighton (Thursday) and Knighton Farmer’s Market 2nd and 4th Saturday.
We established the market garden in 2008 with 4 acres of rented meadow, a caravan and a shed. Since then the smallholding has expanded to 6 acres, 3 polytunnels and a new eco-house.
We gained organic certification in 2010. This means we use minimal inputs, compost any waste and encourage the birds, bees & beneficial insects to help with pest control. We feel an organic system is the most sustainable way to grow healthy tasty food – best for people and the environment.
Well-placed to serve the surrounding areas of Presteigne and Knighton, we grow a wide range of crops for individual customers, as well as local pubs and restaurants. Out of season we also source produce from other local growers so that people can enjoy first class organic food throughout the year without having to travel further afield.
Market Gardens have a vital role to play in the future, as issues of food security and local food production become increasingly prominent.
