Veg Box News 27th Feb to 2nd March, 2018

You will no doubt be aware of the imminent snowfall forecast for this week.  As ever we will aim to continue our deliveries as usual but apologies in advance if we are unable to get through to you.

We are well into that part of the year that is described by growers as The Hungry Gap – the period after most crops have been harvested and new crops are not yet ready.  So we rely on stored local produce, roots particularly and other crops that tolerate standing in the winter fields, augmented with produce from Europe.  Over the next few weeks we will be turning to Europe for more produce – onions, carrots and new season potatoes will be ready in Spain and Italy before our growers can harvest any home-grown crops.

So here are the lists, with a large Disruption Warning attached:


Potatoes – Cara   1.2kg
Carrots 600g
Onions 500g
Bag of Sprouts
Celeriac 800g
Red Pepper
Punnet of Mushroom

B’s will get a portion of Parsnips instead of potatoes
D’s will get a further 800g Potatoes and a lettuce
E’s will get 600g Leeks
L’s and M’s will get the above additions and Green and Yellow Peppers


Apples -Fuji 600g
Grapes 400g
Bananas 600g
Oranges 600g

Q’s will also get a portion of Clementines
