Welcome to Moyns Park Organics
– the seasonal organic vegetable box of choice –
Moyns Park Organics is a market garden, located in the upper Stour valley on the Essex/Suffolk border, and is based in the old kitchen garden on the historic and beautiful Moyns Park Estate. From there, using growing methods that respect the soil and the natural environment, a wide range of seasonal vegetables, herbs, and fruit are grown year-round, to supply a home delivered veg box scheme and regular Farmers’ Market stalls.
The vegetable boxes delivered by Moyns Park Organics are unlike many others, in that customers can select the contents of their box from a regularly updated availability list. For the adventurous there is an option to select a ‘standard box’ – if you don’t mind the odd surprise, or if you just want to test your culinary skills. Choice also extends to the regularity that you order; there is no obligation to take a box every week, just as and when you would like one.
Our Soil Association certificate
” We firmly believe that, you are what you eat, and so our crops are grown naturally, without the use of pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic chemical fertilizers; at Moyns Park Organics we like to work with, rather than against nature, and are passionate about following a sustainable approach to food production. The market garden is Certified Organic by the Soil Association, and equally importantly, so are the fields, paddocks and woodland that immediately surround it, thereby eliminating the risk of contamination from any airborne spray drift.
We grow as much of the produce that goes into the boxes that we can on our 2 acres, however, particularly during the lean months of winter we source some crops from other certified organic farms in East Anglia to supplement our own production.”

Check your oil tanks/electric meter/log piles; it looks like we are in for a cold spell of weather, and I would hate it if you got caught out. I have been sawing logs today, and the inglenook is fairly well stacked with them now, so bring it on! There is, however,...
“Organic farming appealed to me because it involved searching for and discovering nature’s pathways, as opposed to the formulaic approach of chemical farming. The appeal of organic farming is boundless; this mountain has no top, this river has no end.”
