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-so we try to go for more variety rather than large quantities of any one veg .
What's in the box? We try to provide a good variety all year. 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 supply as much of our own grown produce as possible during the season-salad, cucumber,beans, celery, beetroot, and courgettes are some of our favourites. In the winter months we supplement our own produce (such as kale, leeks, neeps &tatties) with bought in vegetables so as to provide a good selection. All the produce is certified organic.
What if I'm out when you deliver? No problem - just tell us 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 I reckon.
Do I have to get a box every week? Well, yes-this is a weekly delivery service but you can pause at any time for holidays.
