A family size veg box for xmas dinner and xmas week. All organic veg will be sourced locally as we can and will be grown in the UK. Normally includes Potatoes, Leeks , Onions, Carrots, Parsnip , Cabbage, Brussel sprouts, Swede.
Our chirstmas root veg is fresh picked and stores easily in cold environment such as a fridge or a shed for a couple of weeks. It’s only sprouts that will go off sooner. Just cover any veg you store in an outbuilding to protect it from frost.
Produce is usually all Northumbrian but some years we need to fill up with some other produce from around the north if our local farms have difficulty. As usual we will be buying the best quality produce we can source.
Contents may vary in Christmas week itself but we are planning to have the following in our Christmas day veg boxes this year:
2.5kg organic potatoes
500g organic leeks
1 kg organic onions
1.5 kg carrots
1kg organic parsnips
750g Brussel sprouts or sprout stalk
Our christmas dinner boxes are ready made and we can’t adjust the contents individually. We qre encouraging customers to get their boxes early this year to ensure they get the best chance to get all their essentials for their Christmas meal.
We don’t put broccoli or cauliflower in our boxes as these are traditionally picked in the north east before the winter starts in the north to avoid frost damage. We should however have these available christmas week in the shop even if they have to come from the continent. apples, clementines and other popular lines will be available in xmas week in the shop for customers who want to top up.
Please place any order for Christmas poultry or veg boxes separately from any weekly order.
