How does it work?

You subscribe for a season's veg box (or both seasons):

  • Summer Veg Box: from June 3rd to end of September 9th (15 weeks) 

  • Autumn/Winter Veg Box: from September 16th to 23rd December (15 weeks).

What about summer holidays?

We offer a pause option if you are planning to be away during the veg box subscription period. You can also choose to donate your box to a neighbour or we can offer it to the amazing Kinder Kitchen project and other local food charities. 

How can I pay?

You can pay for your whole subscription at the start of the season (one off payment) or on a monthly basis. We'll send a link for online bank transfer or get in touch for other payment options. 

Can I swap items in my box?

As we are a small producer and have a limited availability of produce we would rather not swap too many items. However, if you really don't like a veg you can of course let us know your preferences on the sign up form. Just let us know at the start of the season :-D 

Trial box 
We offer a small number of trial boxes available to collect from the farm on Friday afternoons if you would like to sample our produce before committing to joining the veg box family! email middlegroundgrowers@outlook.com for more information. 

Where do we deliver?

All our deliveries are done by e-bikes. We have two options: 

- Home delivery: we can deliver easily up to a few miles from our market gardens in Bathampton & Weston (see map - although we now also do Upper Weston!). Our priority delivery areas are: Bathampton, Batheaston, Canal Path, Weston and Bath Centre. Home delivery fee applies (£1). 

 

- Collection: you can collect at a neighborhood hub. We currently drop off boxes at: Oak Restaurant, Landrace Bakery and two collection hubs in Upper Weston and Batheaston. Bear Flat collection option and possibly others to be added in 2022!

If you are unsure please get in touch. You can also come and collect directly from the farm.
