could someone tell me where to start looking for something local (doncaster, south yorks) and how much they pay/what they get and how often so i could work out if it would work for me. Hope that makes sense, tia
another vote for Riverford (Nene). Think it works out cheaper to buy from them then lets say Tescos plus the quality is much better. We used to order the large one (2 adults 2 DC) but then we eat a lot of veg.
Now we order just a fruit box and extra apples as have lots of vegetables in garden plus I won a weekly veg box for a year from another company and the quality is very poor!
I get a box from the riverford (hampshire) and supplement it where I need to. I find the veg keeps so much better than the same from tesco, and is about the same only more convienent. The chap is usually happy for me to swap an item if needs be.
I get my fruit from the local market weekly, much cheaper
Riven (or anyone) can you tell me what to do with chard? I've had it a couple of times in my veg bag and have little idea what to do with it?
Otherwise, I love my veg delivery, there is always something different in there I wouldn't have thought of buying myself. And I actually quite like the challenge of making sure I use all the different things up by the time the next delivery turns up.
We use a very local organic scheme, run from a nursery 2 miles away.
Abel & Cole are very good and you can indicate things you really don't like so they don't send it. They delivery weekly and the stuff is good quality. I used to use a local one but the quality wasn't too good.
Abel & Cole are national, but are supposed to be an excellent company to work for and ethical in all they do.
we have just started getting an abel and cole box once a fortnight. We don't eat much veg and although DS1&2 eat fruit, i don't so its a great way to make sure i actually eat properly! We get the baby box for now so we aren't wasting any and i also get eggs in my delivery.
