Veg Box News: 12th - 15th September, 2017

Organic September is upon us - the Soil Association's annual promotion.

Win an Organic Hamper from Windmill Organics

 This year Windmill Organics are offering a hamper of organic goodies in return for you granting access to your email inbox.  Send us an email for a chance to win - put 'I want to win the hamper' in the Subject line - that's all -  and we'll add you to our mailing list and Windmill will add you to theirs. (You can unsubscribe at any time!)  Of course, if you want to share a vegetable related joke at the same time we'd be delighted to receive them - but the quality of joke will not affect your chances of winning

Here are the lists for next week's boxes.  At this time of year most of the produce is grown in the UK and so G Boxes will resemble the standard A and B boxes.  As usual some lines are grown very locally - this week the Leeks and Kale are both from Sheffield Organic Growers.  SOG are also supplying all our requirements for courgettes in the shop.  Cucumbers and parsley are also from these local growers. Fennel will be coming from Wortley Walled Garden.


  • Potatoes 1kg
  • Onions 500g
  • Carrots 600g
  • Broccoli 400g
  • Fennel
  • A Bag of Chard
  • Leeks 500g

B's will get a Kohl Rabi in place of the potatoes
D's will get a further 800g of Potates and a bag of Kale or Cavolo Nero
E's will get the Kohl Rabi and some Pointed Peppers
G's as per standard boxes
L's and M's will get the above additions and 2 Sweetcorn


  • Apples 600g
  • Pears 600g
  • A Melon
  • Grapefruit
  • Bananas 600g

Q's will also get a Mango.

This weekend (Sunday 10th, September) we will be attending Kelham Island Farmers market

Veg Box News 10th - 13th July, 2018

We are delighted to be including so much local and UK-grown produce in the boxes this week although for some lines this does mean a slight...
