Frequently Asked Questions…
Just how local is local? 40 miles we feel is a sensible distance for our produce to travel, no more. This 40 mile radius takes us as far as the south coast, so we will soon be adding an extensive selection of seasonal and responsibly caught fresh fish and shellfish to our product range! We’ll also soon be adding Wines, Beers, Ciders and Ales as we are very fortunate to have 3 award winning vineyards/brewery’s located within a mere 8.3miles of our base!
Can we really source a varied enough range of produce? You’ll be amazed and surprised at the great selection of produce we have sourced from within our target radius. In essence, most people weekly shopping basket, sourced from just 40 miles! Our products include; Handmade Cheeses, Smoked and Fresh meats, Game (when in season), Poultry, Artisan Breads and Handmade Pastries, Seasonal Produce, Free Range Eggs, Dairy produce, Juices, Vegetarian, Vegan & Gluten Free dishes, Soups, Sauces & Salsa’s, Wholemeal Pizza’s, Chutneys, Honeys, Beeswax Products – including Bath Bombs and Soaps, Body Lotions and Moisturisers. Award winning Curry Sauces, Pickles and Chutneys, Real Dairy Ice Cream – produced entirely from ‘cow to freezer in under an hour’, a mere 6 miles away, to name just a few items. We’ve even sourced a natural mineral water producer just 5 miles away!
What makes us different from other veg box schemes? We are so much more than just veg boxes! Our range already has over 800 items listed, of which 5 of these are ‘veg boxes’ and we’ve only just skimmed the surface of all sourcing these quality local products. Our unique selling point is we source only from 40 miles! No other produce delivery company does this, whilst offering such a wide, versatile range. But it is possible and it is truly remarkable what we have available right on our doorsteps! And as our products haven’t travelled halfway around the world, they will be fresher and healthier for you. Our own local economy will benefit from increased demand and crucially, as all products will have only come from within our target radius, we won’t be adding to the global food distribution problems known as ‘excess food miles’.
