Image is of a proposed Family Box. Big on value, low on frills. What do you think? 🙂
A bit of survey feedback we got was to introduce a Family Box for families who want more volume for less money.
It could have more volume of cheaper things like potatoes, beetroots and cabbages and less of the fancy things like avocadoes, apricots and peppers.
We’re thinking of a larger medium box – with the 3 core veg (potatoes, onions, carrots) + at least 2 additional veg + 2 fruit for £15.
If you think this is something that might interest you or people you know, please tell us as soon as you can. We could launch it soon if there is demand.
We do like growing herbs so we have put some more in the shop – our own herb fennel, dill, lovage and huacatay are all in there.
Huacatay is also known as Peruvian mint and is a hugely aromatic South American herb – excellent for those exciting Peruvian recipes you have been meaning to try!
The basil and parsley have been slow this year but are on their way.
We also added some red kohl rabi (Borders) to the shop. These are planned for next week’s boxes. We’ve also got ‘Pink Lady’ apples (Argentina).
Next week’s plan for boxes
The plan is for Small boxes to have kohl rabi and ‘Melody’ potatoes (UK), broccoli (Italy), onions (Egypt), chestnut mushrooms (Holland) and bananas (Dominican Republic).
Medium & Large boxes should have all that as well as aubergine (Spain), spring onions (UK) and ‘Packham’ pears (Argentina).
Gardener’s boxes are due to have chestnut mushrooms (Holland), bananas (Dominican Republic), aubergine (Spain), ‘Packham’ pears (Argentina), cocktail tomatoes (Isle of Wight), red peppers (Spain) and apricots (Spain/Italy).
This week’s is a delicious Cabbage Pepper Salad.
All produce in our pre-packed standard and Gardener’s Boxes this week is organic (class II), supplied to current EU organic standards.
Organic Certificates are available direct from our suppliers.
Salad bags, lettuce, rhubarb, coriander and dill are homegrown in Llansadwrn and are not certified organic.
