Veg Box Newsletter w/c 4.6.18

Hello Folks,

We’ve finally reached new potato season! They are limited in availability this week, so only feature in the small and extra large veg boxes, but if you get a standard or large veg box, you can look forward to getting them next week.

This glorious weather might be great for us, but is potentially not doing your veg any favours on delivery day. We would recommend leaving out a cool bag/box with an ice pack to for us to pop your order into to keep the delicate fruit & veg and any chilled produce at it’s freshest, especially if it’s going to be sitting out for a few hours. If you’re going to do this, let us know, and we’ll add a delivery instruction to your order.

If you’re looking for more information on your veg or recipe inspiration, check out our veggiepedia, and join your fellow subscribers over in the Facebook group.
