Our produce

We keep our whole operation as local as we can, using as much of our own produce in the box as possible:  we are fortunate to be able to supplement our outdoor winter crops by having one acre under glass and polytunnels, which gives us good season extension particularly on leafy crops; and summer crops of tomatoes, peppers, aubergines etc.  Then we source close to home, e.g. potatoes from Boathouse Farm in Isfield; apples and juice from Oakwood Farm in Robertsbridge; a variety of different vegetables grown on Laine's Organic Farm in Cuckfield and by Metske Van der Laan in Winchelsea. 

We also have seasonal treats such as Forced Rhubarb in the spring and Figs in the summer which we like to offer as additional items to your orders.

To maintain good variety and quality we do sometimes have to go further afield to Herefordshire, Lincolnshire and Cornwall; and Southern Europe at times.

Deliveries

If you would like to receive a box this week, please make sure to order by 9am on Tuesday.
 
Delivery is to the door and free.  We deliver our boxes as economically as possible, so you will be put on a round according to your address.  We will tell you when to expect your delivery which will be roughly the same time each week. 
 
We are happy to leave your box for you if you are not in, just let us know if there is a particular place you would like it left.  Even if your doorstep is right on the street some customers leave out a recycling box for us to pop the box into, so it is not obvious and is sheltered from marauding seagulls!

This gives you a rough idea where we deliver and when - it is not set in stone, and when you set up your order, we will let you know which day you will receive your box.
