Local Food Box Schemes

Catchbox is a Community Supported Fishery run by a not-for-profit community co-op. Members pay for a share of a fisherman’s catch (caught by responsible methods) and over a 10 week period receive a regular supply of seafood, straight from him. You choose whether you want whole fish or fillets, on a weekly or fortnightly basis, enough for two or family size. You won’t get to choose what fish you’ll be getting, it depends on what the fishermen catch that day.

Only 35 shares of the Fork and Dig It 2013 Veg Share harvest are available on a first come first served basis so it may too late for this year, but if you’re interested in a weekly supply of top quality ultra fresh ultra local vegetables – which you have helped to grow – check it out for next time.

A sheep-share scheme that gets land-preserving sheep (Herdwicks) grazing on Brighton & Hove Downs back into the city as lamb, and shares the meat between interested residents. The winter deadline for placing orders for a share of the sheep is 29 November. See website for full details.
