The box scheme operates from within the walled garden in Coleshill, on the Oxfordshire/Wiltshire border. Free delivery is offered to collection points and individual homes within a 15 mile radius of Coleshill. New customers signing up to receive a regular box delivery get their fifth box free. There is also a farm shop located within the walled garden which is open from Wednesday to Saturday. Coleshill has thousands of visitors each year, mostly school/college groups who pick and eat their way around the garden and hopefully develop a lasting desire to know where their food originates from. The business grew out of a passion to provide local people with the highest quality fresh produce. Coleshill Organics can also be found every Saturday from 9am until 2pm at Cornhill Market Place (and surrounding streets), Stroud, GL5 2HH.
