Veg Box Newsletter w/c 2.4.18

Hello Folks,

There’s still loads of time to enter our Munch of the Month competition – all you need to do is share a photo of your veg box creation on Facebook or Instagram. Remember to include a brief description of what you’ve made, as well as the tags #locavoremm and #locavorevegbox.

If you’re looking for recipe inspiration, check out what your fellow subscribers are doing over in the Facebook group. Also have a browse of our veggiepedia for more information and recipe ideas.

We’re trying out something new this week with the contents list to include the origin of your veg. We’ll be updating the website soon, with more information on the farms that our veg comes from.

In the veg boxes this week:

Due to further delays with a haulier, there are no carrots in the veg boxes this week, we substituted the value with extra root veg.
