Hello Folks,

Christmas trees have arrived this week ready for our deliveries to start at the weekend! As well as trees and wreaths, we have organic meat, vegetarian and vegan roasts, cheeses and puddings. There’s also a selection of great gifts. Check out our Christmas shop and place your order here.

Last call for entries to this round of the Munch of the Month competition – the deadline is Friday, 1st of December. Simply enter by sharing a photo of your veg box creation to social media, with the tags #locavoremm and #locavorevegbox.
