🥦🥔🥕 Update on Veg 🥦🥔🥕
We will now no longer be taking orders for veg boxes. The season for most local, seasonal veg is now coming to an end and to fill the boxes now we would have to be taking in veg from wholesalers which defeats the purpose of the boxes and would be more expensive! The boxes will start again as soon as local veg becomes available in July.
It often surprises me in the shop how many people don't realise how little veg is grown in this part of the country and how seasonal it is. Simon and Sarah at Achnagairn Eat Your Greens do a fantastic job growing most of the veg we've had in the shop and the boxes since last July. However there are very few others in this area who grow such a range of veg. The climate we farm in here also makes the job very difficult, and is why for the next few months, potatoes and carrots are really the only local veg available.
We will of course still stock the veg rack in the mean time with the best British and seasonal veg we can get, and we are already seeing the first tender stem broccoli and pak choi coming from the south of England.
