Apologies for the lack of Veg Box News recently – Mark, who orders the fruit and veg for the boxes, uses various suppliers across the week and so piecing the box recipe together can be a drawn out process. Recently it has been hard to pin down recipes until the last minute but if you ever need to know what plans we have you are very welcome to phone the shop and ask. We’ll give you our best guess!

It’s lovely to have some of the new season English grown veg coming in. We’re hopeful for some lovely Spring Onions from Sheffield Organic Growers for the no potatoes boxes this week – although there is a slight issue over availability so the usual warnings apply regarding last minute substitutions.
