Welcome to North East Organic Growers

North East Organic Growers is a workers' co-operative based at Earth Balance, Bomarsund - twelve miles North of Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

Existing since 1995, we grow organic vegetables on our twelve acre site, and run a "box scheme", which is a cost-effective way of buying certified organic seasonal vegetables and fruit on a regular basis. All produce is certified organic and guaranteed to be free of added pesticides, herbicides and GMOs, grown using ecologically sound and sustainable methods so members will be supporting a healthier environment as well as their own health.
