About the veg boxes
The aim is to provide really tasty, fresh, local vegetables in a way which is convenient and affordable.
Boxes will be delivered weekly between the 6th of July and the 9th of November. Almost all vegetables will be picked on the day of delivery, so they'll arrive in the freshest possible condition.
Here is a list of vegetables which will be grown in the garden:
Roots: beetroot, carrots, turnip, celeriac
Peas and Beans: broad beans, runner beans, peas, mangetout
Onions: spring onions, onions, leeks
Courgettes and pumpkins
Brassicas: cauliflower, brocolli, kale and cabbage
Salad: spinach, lettuce, rocket, mustard, celery, chard, parsley
The veg boxes have been planned so that each will contain between 7 and 11 different types of vegetables, with a good range of the different groups.
All vegetables will be grown outside in the field, so they also need to be able to withstand our Scottish weather. So no aubergines this year I'm afraid but perhaps in the future!
Sarah and Paul will be growing organic potatoes on a field scale which can be ordered separately in larger quantities to be delivered with the veg box. You can also put in orders for their beef and lamb to be delivered in the same way, see www.coldwellsorganic.co.uk.

Cancellation and refunds
If some weeks you're not around to take your veg box we will refund it, provided you let us know 48 hours in advance of the delivery. There may be other people who would like a veg box but would be around more often, so if you cancel more than 3 week's of veg box we reserve the right to end your subscription.
