Should you wish to cancel your order, you can do so within the deadlines specified above.

We will notify you of any items that are out of stock when we process your order, and give alternative options where applicable.

PAYMENTS

Invoices are sent by email on the Monday following your delivery. Payments are to be made by bank transfer within 7 days of the invoice date.

CLAIMS

You will receive a delivery note with your order, and this will note any last minute changes or items out of stock.

We require you to check your order on delivery and contact our office by email or phone within 24 hours of delivery if something is wrong with your order:

1) Check your order is correct, ensuring all items are there.
2) Check the quality of your order – certain items can turn quickly after our own careful quality control.
3) If anything is missing or of poor quality, let us know within 24 hours of receiving the box. Please also attach photo evidence where appropriate.

Should credit be deemed necessary, a credit note will be added to your account, and the balance will deducted from your next invoice.

We will not be able to process any claims made after 24hours of delivery.

If any produce turns bad unexpectedly outwith the 24 hour period then please do get in contact (with a photo) but first please ensure you have stored the item correctly by referring to our storage guidelines.

PACKAGING

We endeavour to keep our plastic consumption to a minimum

Locavore Grown Produce

  • Retail bags of herbs, salad & cooking greens will be packed in BioBags, which are made of (non GMO) thistles grown on non-arable land. We encourage our customers to reuse these as food waste caddy liners, or put on a home compost heap.
  • Loose leafy greens are sold by the kilo, and will be packed in large plastic bags to retain moisture. You can return this to us for reuse.

You can read more about our packing practice here.
