A weekly guide to the honey tree

The most common question we are asked in our organic food shop  ? When does your veg come in ? Here’s a quick guide to what happens each day of the week  in our organic food shop.


 Our cakes are fresh out and sandwiches are available from 10am.  Fresh takeaway food is prepared every morning Monday to Friday before the shutters are opened.

We do our organic veg and chilled reductions on a Monday and from midday there is a great chance to start picking up some bargains on the veg display or in the chilled fridges.


Veg reductions for the week are all finished by midday to make way for the new deliveries coming in.

Fresh milk, butter, and cream from acorn dairy and harry hodgeson’s eggs from piercebridge organic farm are on the shelves by midday.

We love our Monday afternoon and Tuesday shoppers as they hoover up the last of our fresh produce at cost and help keep everything in the shop as fresh as can be. And it’s a great way to make organic food more affordable.

Bread from Pauls bakery is out for sale by 2pm.


Our new fruit and veg display is out each week by midday on a Wednesday.


Thursday – Social media for the week has been updated before opening.  Local organic Chicken is out for sale by 2pm.


Glass milk bottles from acorn dairy are out by 2pm and our fridges have been restocked with chilled goods by the same time. Fresh stocks from broomhouse farm arrive for the last Friday of each month.


Our Suma delivery is out on the shelves by 10am. Our deli counter is restocked with new cheeses by the same time. By opening on a saturday all our small scale local food suppliers have topped up their wares and the shop is ready for it’s busiest day.  Any pre-orders for bulk items customers have placed are also available from 10am on the Saturday.

We don’t take orders for fresh goods but will happily put them aside for you on  the day of delivery if you give us a call.
