Welcome!

Sims Hill Shared Harvest is a community supported agriculture scheme (CSA). We use natural growing methods and permaculture principles to produce high quality fruit and veg for the people of Bristol. Sims Hill is in Frenchay, just two miles from Bristol city centre.

Fruit and veg is delivered to pick up points across the city where you can collect your weekly share. It’s similar to a veg box scheme, but is owned and run by its members.

Sims Hill also offers opportunities for education, work and recreation, supports people who are socially or economically marginalised, and builds community by creating a relationship between food and its production.

  1. We visited Sims Hill on Friday 28th March to see what a CSA scheme was like first-hand, as my colleagues and I are currently researching why people participate in CSAs and how their experiences differ, for an undergraduate project. We were shown round the site and participated in weeding some land. Everyone there was very friendly and happy to talk to us about our research, and the ideas and opinions they provided were extremely helpful. We would like to pay particular thanks to Tim, who gave us lots of useful information on CSAs, Sims Hill, Feed Bristol and many other things. We were able to appreciate that the work undertaken at Sims Hill is highly important, not only for those receiving the produce, for promoting food quality and local produce, helping the community and for the future of CSAs. Although it was a wet and windy day, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would like to thank Sims Hill for letting us come down for the morning!
