Closer to Home Veg Box

Closer to Home Veg Box


In the Closer to Home box you’ll find organic veg mainly from local growers in East Lothian, but also some from other parts of the UK depending on seasonal availability. We’re also developing links with small-scale growers and community gardens even closer to Penicuik.


What to expect in the box?


Box contents will vary considerably throughout the year and will reflect the limitations of the British, particularly Scottish, climate. As a guide you can expect potatoes, carrots and onions, some leafy greens and  3 or 4 other items such as courgettes, beans and tomatoes in summer, cabbage, root vegetables and squashes in winter. NOTE :- Local and UK farmers are experiencing difficult harvesting conditions this year (flooded or frozen fields). In order to maintain some variety in box contents, we may sometimes include imported items. Let us know if that's a problem for you.


Produce coming from local farms will come straight from the field to us so root veg will carry soil (it helps to keep them fresh). Many types of veg will come with leaves attached, which you may not be used to, but rest assured if the leaves are there you can eat them!
