Veg Box Newsletter w/c 30.11.17

Hello Folks,

We have a colourful array of produce in the veg boxes today to cheer up what has been a very grim start to November, with golden beetroot from Chapel Farm, squash from Bedlam Farm and our very own Red Russian kale. Oh, and cherry tomatoes from the Isle of Wight for a taste of summer…

If you’re looking for inspiration for what to do with your veg, check out our veggiepedia and online community of fellow subscribers.

Entries are open for the autumn edition of Munch of the Month. If you’d like to be in for a chance of winning a hamper of delights from our shop, all you have to do is share a photo of a dish you have created using ingredients from your veg box alongside a brief description and the tags #locavoremm and #locavorevegbox. Feel free to enter as many times as you like, the competition closes on Friday, December 1st.

In other news, we’re looking for a few more investors to help launch our new store on Victoria Road. You can invest anything from £250+ and choose your term and rate of interest. Take a look at our loanstock offer and register your interest here.
