Field scale vegetables
Vegetables such as carrots, onions, peas, beans, swedes, leeks and brassicas are grown commercially on a field-scale, principally for human consumption, and with most being sold through the major multiple retailers.
Many vegetable crops are highly perishable, and if they are not quickly marketed when mature, then produce can go to waste.
Purchasers of organic vegetable produce are often keen also to support local growers, through box schemes and farmers' markets, and this consumer preference can make organic vegetable production viable on a smaller scale than is usual with conventional production.
