Our Business Model
RHUBARB FARM is the largest producer of organic fruit and vegetables within the area.
Our placements, training courses, cafe and other offerings build on the experience of our Managing Director, Jennie Street, in running a similar service - where quality attracts a wide range of people to take advantage of our provision.
A placement at RHUBARB FARM means more than just coming to work - it generates social capital and attracts a wide base of customers.
RHUBARB FARM is small and local in nature - flexible to meet customers' demands. We are not only concerned with maximising income, but also with creating a social and working environment that suits the people who come to the Farm as users to volunteer.
RHUBARB FARM is a local aagriculture-based social enterprise serving the locality. Its basic priciple is to improve the quality of lives of people in and around
north Nottinghamshire and north Derbyshire (Bassetlaw, Mansfield Bolsover and North East Derbyshire district councils, and Chesterfield Borough Council).
We grow 130 varieties of fruit and vegetables selling to local Farm shops and veg bag customers, as well as fresh flowers for farm shops.
None of our produce travels far - low food miles and really fresh produce.
