At the risk of confusing you, we thought it might be helpful also to give you a list of the basics going into the boxes during Christmas Week, so that you can plan your shopping. Quantities may vary a little (as indeed may the actual contents - we will do our best to give you what we say we will but sometimes things just don’t turn up!)

Potatoes 1400g – Maris Piper, a great roaster
Onions 500g
Carrots 600g
Parsnips 600g
A portion of Red Cabbage

Additional extras (probably) as follows
B’s Tomatoes 5600g
D’s Potatoes 700g and a Lettuce
E’s Tomatoes, Cucumber and a Red Pepper
L’s and M’s – as above but also Tomatoes and Green Pepper

Don’t forget that during Christmas week all deliveries will be coming a day earlier than normal so if you’d like to add anything onto your order or need to alter it in any way please give us as much notice as you can.

How about making up your own hamper in the shop – we can provide a basket at a nominal cost or you could present it in one of our new 30th Anniversary long handled tote bags. The bag was designed by our competition-winning customer, Simon Brock. We think it’s beautiful and a contribution of £1.00 from every bag sold will be going to charity throughout our anniversary year.
