Veg Box News
We are now entering a challenging time of year for the box scheme known colloquially as "The Hungry Gap". With stores of UK produce quickly depleting, the knock on effects from the long hot summer combined with a cold snap in Europe means availability of certain produce is starting to get limited. We won't even mention the dreaded B word but this is also likely to have an effect on imported produce going forward.
We will do our very best to keep the boxes varied during this time but in order to offer you the best value for your money we may have to replicate certain items and stick to UK veg where possible.
If you have any issues at all with the content or quality of produce in your box please get in touch asap and we will do our best to resolve any problems.
