Our service is still in it’s early stages and our deliveries are continuing to support elderly, and vulnerable customers each week. New customers help fill up our delivery runs and make our service viable. And with only 3 allowed in the shop at present, collecting a ready made box can help also help save time on the shop floor. Making up boxes is an important part of keeping our overall fresh service operating smoothly at present , so we appreciate everyone’s support.

We also appreciate any orders for delivery and collection. It’s been challenging to adapt the business so quickly but everyone has seemed really happy with their boxes and we have been pleased with the quality and value of the produce we were working with. It’s been nice to get things out around the new delivery days when it was all really fresh. Thanks for all the messages of support. We aim to follow the seasons with our ready made boxes and they will be different each week and reflect what is popular in-store.

We are just a small business with a bit of a smaller team than usual . But we have had a lot of requests for veg boxes and delivery at the shop recently. And we know from the trade that our organic boxes offer good value and quality, and so we are happy to start doing more in the present circumstances as part of making the best quality locally sourced organic fruit and veg more accessible at reasonable prices.

We often work with independent organic farms and have a different supply chain from the supermarkets and most other greengrocers. And we find our low waste supply chain respects growers and results in a better product and a better price for everyone. A lot of our fruit and veg is picked to order and arrives direct from the farm.

Thanks for visiting our page. We expect the current situation will be continue to be a bit of a challenge for us as business and for others at large, but we hope with your support we can keep up our sales of fresh goods. We can keep the prices down, and the quality up only as long as we can keep our weekly orders big enough.
