Further Afield Veg Box
We’ve created the Further Afield box in response to customer demand for colourful, easy-to-prepare vegetables, which have become the staples of modern cooking habits. Whether you’re seeking the health appeal of a Mediterranean diet, or essential ingredients for your pasta sauces and curries, this is the box for you.
What to expect in the box?
As a guide you can expect a selection from peppers, aubergines, courgettes, tomatoes, butternut squash, sweet potatoes, cucumbers etc, with no potatoes or heavy root veg.
Most of this produce is grown in Europe and there will be less variation through the year than in the Closer to Home box. When it’s possible to source from the UK, of course we will. NOTE :- due to recent uncertainties in the supply chain from Europe, prices have gone up - sometimes a lot! - for imported produce. In order to maintain value, boxes may contain more local produce than usual. Still no potatoes or heavy roots!
Occasional exotics like ginger come from even further away but none of these items are ever air-freighted.
