Tombreck Market Garden

*** Update, September 17th ***

New website for veg box orders

We have partnered with Growing Good, a company specialising in online veg sales, to create a new website for ordering our seasonal veg boxes:

 

https://www.tombreckmarketgarden.co.uk/

 

There are various options for managing your order, including specifying the dates you will receive one, when you need to pause eg: to go on holiday, a choice between five different drop-off points in Killin, Kenmore, Aberfeldy, Camserney or Tombreck Farm itself, and the option for various add-ons subject to availability.  For the remainder of the season we will continue to provide the small veg box for £10 as standard and produce will all be grown by us on the market garden unless otherwise indicated. As before we will attempt to keep a balance between leaves, roots and fruits and have some variation from week to week. It's still early days, but we're looking forward to expanding what we're able to offer from 2024, both in quantity and variety. We expect to have enough veg to supply customers until Christmas and perhaps for a few weeks into the new year before pausing for the 'hungry gap' until late Spring/early Summer. See the photo below for an example of what you might receive:

Sadly the Neighbourfood hub for Killin has been discontinued due to a lack of funds for delivery and admin costs. However you can still order individual items for delivery to the Handam Refill Stations in Pitlochry and Aberfeldy via our Neighbourfood page (for deliveries to Aberfeldy order through the Pitlochry market page and select Aberfeldy as your collection point in the checkout section). Otherwise our produce is still available from the Handam stores, MacGregor's Community Shop in Killin and the Farm Shop here at Tombreck.

Hello, and welcome to the webpage for Tombreck Market Garden!
 

A brief introduction: We are Rachel and Ian, two growers who moved to Tombreck in February 2023 with the goal of setting up a market garden and selling veg to the local community.

Our background is in organic growing where we have around twenty years' experience between us, and we intend to apply the various techniques and practices we have learned along the way to grow a mixed variety of produce from the land here, initially for sale in the farm shop, but also via Neighbourfood and now a veg box scheme. We will also look into various forms of community involvement inspired by the CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) model.

To keep up to date with our progress please sign up to our monthly newsletter using the form below, or scroll down to see the most recent example. If you would like to get in touch, our email address is: marketgarden@tombreck.co.uk We look forward to supplying you with quality veg, hopefully for many years to come!

Wish List

Due to the nature of this project we expect to incur large costs for the first few years while we set up all the necessary infrastructure, acquire the materials, and build the relationships, as well as doing the work of preparing the land for growing vegetables. It will likely be a number of years before our income will start to cover (and ideally repay) these initial investments. With this in mind any help with meeting our requirements at these early stages would be greatly appreciated! We would gladly accept donations of the following, in reasonably good condition. Please contact us via: marketgarden@tombreck.co.uk to make further arrangements.

Gardening/farming hand tools, particularly:

  • Rakes

  • Hand forks & trowels

  • Digging forks & spades

  • Hoes

  • Sledge hammer

  • Buckets/trugs for weeding

  • Plant pots & seed trays

  • Bed roller

  • Plastic crates

  • Tarps, mesh, garden fleece, weed barrier fabric, used polytunnel plastic

General DIY or woodworking tools, particularly:

  • Drill & drill bits (would accept hand-powered)

  • Pipe wrench

  • Wood saws

  • Hack saw

  • Chisels

  • Spirit level

  • Carpenter's square

  • Screws & nails

  • Nuts & bolts

  • Ladder

  • Wheelbarrow

We would also consider more bulky items, eg: timber, pallets, construction materials etc. subject to transport arrangements. Also, if you have any other items which you no longer need and think might be useful, please don't hesitate to get in touch!

 

Many thanks,

Ian & Rachel
