Veg box delivery service

If you eat vegetables, live in Fife and can find £15 a week (or £14 paid by standing order) then we're in business.  We have 2 regular delivery days. Wednesday is north and east Fife and Thursday we deliver to south and west Fife.  Best to contact Ralph (who delivers the boxes) directly. Either email: box@pillars.co.uk or telephone 07858 076801. I'll put a wee Ralphie button just below you can click on to save you copying out his email (I know you're busy). He'll get you organised.

Meantime here's some (too) Frequently Asked Questions (with approximate answers) below. 

How many people does the box feed?  Well it depends on how much you eat of course, but most customers find one box a week is enough. Leafy vegetables will not always keep a whole week even in a fridge, so you may have to top up. A common 'complaint' is that there is too much in the box-slightly galling to be hoisted on our own petard of generosity. 

What's in the box?  We try to provide a good variety. Potatoes, carrots & onions are staples. One sort of fruit usually and then whatever else we feels makes up a decent selection of vegetables. We try to get a balance between using our own seasonal veg,such as leeks & kale and bought in and exotics like peppers in the winter months. All the produce is certified organic.

What if I'm out when he delivers?  No problem - just tell Ralph where to leave a box (somewhere dry) - shed, porch, neighbour, under a plastic box, wherever. You can leave a cheque there too.

What if I don't like some vegetables?  Well, possibly this isn't for you. The economics of this service rely on us being able to put together lots of identical boxes. However, we do try to vary the box contents week to week.  Curry spices were invented to solve this problem (my thesis).
