The Medium Harvest Bag contains a variety of 10 different seasonal vegetables and herbs grown organically by more than 50 local small-scale farmers in the Umthunzi network.
These bags are curated with you and the farmers in mind:
1. To provide 2-4 people with the essentials needed to cook delicious, nutritious meals for a week,
2. To maximise the earning potential of farmers,
3. To reduce the risk of crop loss, and
4. To reduce the risk of food waste.
It couldn't be a better scenario - delicious nutritious #vegwithimpact & no non-recyclable packaging.
About Umthunzi Farming Collective : In March 2018, small-scale farmers across the Cape Flats had a crisis: hundreds of brinjals were ripening in their fields and they had nowhere to sell them. Without adequate business skills and access to market, vegetables rotted in their fields and the farmers suffered a severe loss of income. In response, Umthunzi Farming Community was established. UFC is a social business working in the Cape Town food system, who currently work with more than 50 small-scale organic farmers from Khayelitsha, Gugulethu, Nyanga, Mitchells Plain, Philippi and Malmesbury. They economically empower small-scale urban farmers in Cape Town through marketing, sales & distribution of their veg & business skills development & are a firm favourite amongst clients : Clarke's, The French Market, Puregood, Home Bao & Arthur's Mini Super amongst many other restauranteurs & caterers.
