What's in the box?
You have the choice between two sizes:
Classic Box (£14): individual size (1-2 person), 6-7 items
Family Size (£20): family size (3-4 person), 9-10 items
During summer time this includes: lettuce, onions, garlic, beans, carrots, beetroots, radish, cucumbers, tomatoes, chard/spinach, kale, courgettes and fresh herbs (basil, parsley).
During autumn/winter: lettuce, leeks, squash, cabbages, kale, parsnips, carrots, potatoes, onions, swede/turnips and organic sourdough bread (from The Oven), eggs, apple juice and other seasonal produce.
We also buy from other organic farms in the winter months in addition to what we grow on our plot (e.g. pears, potatoes).
How does it work?
You subscribe for a season's veg box (or both seasons):
Summer Veg Box: from mid-June to end of September (16 weeks)
Autumn/Winter Veg Box: from October to Christmas (12 weeks).
What about summer holidays?
As ecological small scale producers we need to be supported by our customers ("veg boxers") so that we can plan, invest and deliver fresh and nutritious food to you. Summer is the most productive time but we understand everyone needs a break. So we will pause the deliveries for 2 weeks: the first week of July and August. On those weeks you are welcome to visit our Summer Farmers' Market to buy your veg.
As young growers we can't offer a "pause option" so if you are planning to be away at any other time outside these two weeks you can donate your box to a neighbour or we can offer it to the amazing Kinder Kitchen project.
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 prefer bank transfer as it is easier than cash when we deliver door-to-door.
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 please you can swap 1 item. Just let us know at the start of the season.
Where do we deliver?
All our deliveries are done by e-bikes.
We can deliver easily up to a few miles from the market garden in Bathampton (see map).
Our priority delivery areas are: Bathampton, Batheaston, Canal Path and Bath Centre.
If you are unsure please get in touch. You can also come and collect directly from the farm.
When do we deliver?
Summer Veg Box: Fridays between 12pm and 5pm.
Autumn/Winter Veg Box: Fridays between 12pm and 3pm.
What if I am not at home?
Please let us know where to leave the box. It can be outside your door, under the porch or a container (ideally a dry place), or with a neighbour.
