Matt at Sheffield Organic Growers is providing bunches of beetroot for the boxes this week as well as plenty of beans, courgettes and cucumbers for the shop… and look, English Blueberries in the Q boxes – it must be summer…

Don’t forget if you are planning a trip away do let us now when – no-one wants to come back to boxes of mouldering vegetables on their doorstep.
Also, talking holidays, take your Beanies logo bag away with you and snap yourself with it in some Summer holiday situation - whether it be on a beach in Bali or in a paddling pool in Penistone – your picture will be entered into a draw for a chance to win a vegetable or fruit box. Find us and post your picture on Instagram and Facebook or send it via email to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)Beanies on Instagram - follow us for info regardijng new products etc  id=

Fuji apples are in the  boxes this week - this variety originated in Japan from a cross between Rall's Janet and Red Delicious.  They are a sweeter variety with good keeping qualities.  Ours of course are coming from South America as do many of our organic apples at this time of year.
