Veg Box Newsletter w/c 17.12.18

Hello Folks,

You’ll each find a couple of small non-vegetable surprises in your veg box this week, which is a festive gift from us as a token of our thanks for your custom. We’re incredibly grateful to have of all of you as customers, and are looking forward to the new year, and what it will bring.

Curly green kale grown at Royal Oak Farm is gracing all of the final veg boxes of 2018! As I’m sure you all know by now, kale is a wonderfully versatile leafy green and is delicious in all its forms – even raw (but remember to massage the leaves to soften)! Our favourite recipe of the moment is this one by Anna Jones’, which pairs sautéed curly kale with crispy butter beans, tomatoes, lemon, walnuts and nutmeg.

This week we’re delivering pasta, pulse & grain boxes alongside our veg boxes. There’s more information on our monthly specials over on our website, and if you’d like to add one to your order, simply drop us an email. Here’s some recipes…

  • Hearty soups and stews are a delicious use of your lentils and old veggies. Perfect for lunchtime visits.
  • We’ve got quinoa once again as it’s such a beautiful resource to be found grown here in our islands’ soils! Looking for a special Christmas dish for veggies?
  • Pop your own popcorn and dress it with these fun toppings for a healthy (or not so healthy) snack.
  • Find out more about Castagno Pasta on our instagram.


Remember to reuse your paper bags at home as we’re unable to recycle these in store for you. You’ll notice we’ve used some of our bio bags (made of thistle!) and any feed back on these is welcomed. These can be reused at home too!

***If you missed the email about our delivery schedule over the festive period, all the information including deadlines for changing your order can be found here. ***

As usual, join your fellow subscribers over in the Facebook group!

As previously noted, we’re delivering double size veg boxes, unless you’ve already been in touch to make alternative arrangements, so this week’s boxes are listed by price (if you’re getting a double box, double your usual price for the corresponding contents list):
