When you sign up you choose what size bag you’d like to order and start paying by monthly direct debit. Payment for the bags is taken monthly in advance at the beginning of each month (the payment amount will vary depending on whether the month has 4 or 5 weeks). When you first sign up we take payment for bags until the end of the first month. Holidays are credited to your online account and reflected in the next month's payment (see 'what happens when I am on holiday' below). Organic vegetables are ordered fresh from farmers every week. Most veg is harvested early in the week, delivered to us on Wednesday. All bags are then distributed to our shops and pick up points on Thursday where you can collect them at a time that suits you. We advise that you collect your veg as soon as possible after Thursday delivery for maximum freshness.
Bags will contain a selection of organic seasonal produce, always British unless absolutely necessary. For example, a small bag will always contain potatoes along with four or five other vegetable or salad items and carrots and onions on rotation.
No, bags are available at different sizes but in order to keep our prices low we cannot offer bespoke bags.
No, In order to reduce food miles (protecting the environment), keep costs down and support local businesses the scheme will deliver bags to a number of designated pick-up points each week. The bags are delivered on Thursday mornings and you can collect your bag at a time that suits.
If you are on holiday log in and select holiday by Thursday 10am the week before the Thursday delivery and we'll cancel your bag. If you let us know by this time you will not pay for the bag.You can do this by going to the homepage, click on 'log in'. Use the email you signed up with and password. Select 'forgotten password' if needed.
Most of our veg will be grown by our farmers who are located in Kent, Essex, Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgshire and Sussex. At certain times of year we will need to supplement local produce with items from other UK farms and occasionally from near Europe. We are committed to supplying veg that is as local as possible but we also want to give our customers an interesting variety. We work hard to get the right balance at a good price. We never use air freight and our use of pick up points rather than delivery to homes keeps our carbon footprint down.

The carrier bags we use are made from recycled plastic and we ask that our customers return them so they can be reused as often as possible. We use plastic bags because they are robust enough to hold the weight of the veg, waterproof and durable for customers to carry home in all weathers.Our suppliers sometimes use polythene bags for certain leafy greens. We are encouraging them to minimise using them and to use biodegradegable bags or other non-plastic materials to keep them veg fresh. Again we ask for them all to be returned for reuse.Plastic has the ability to preserve most veg such as leaves, maintaining freshness for the period from packing until pick up. So are working closely with our suppliers to source useable, practical and enviromentally sound alternatives to the current bags.We ask our customers to either decant their veg into their own bag at the pick up point and leave our bag or return our bag the following week so we can re-use it.For further information about the general use of plastic related to schemes like ours and the environment issues involved see what Growing Communities has said here.
You can sign up and complete the direct debit online. Provided you complete the direct debit instruction by Thursday 10am, you will get your first bag of veg the following Thursday.
