Soil Association BOOM Awards 2017  id=We were delighted to be awarded a Highly Commended in the Best Independent Retailer category at the Soil Association’s annual BOOM Awards. We are the longest standing Vegetable Box Scheme in Sheffield starting over 21 years ago delivering vegetables and fruit to people’s houses in and around Sheffield and the local region. The market for organic veg has certainly changed over the past twenty odd years and it is so gratifying that you, our organic veg box customers are having a significant impact on the growth of the organic sector in particular.

You will of course be aware by now of our links to local organic growers: Sheffield Organic Growers, (who have an open day on Sunday 09.07.2017); High Riggs, who are part of Freeman College; and Wortley Walled Garden. Box schemes such as ours offer these growers a regular outlet for their produce so that they can plant with confidence.
We’ll see more and more produce coming from them as the summer progresses. Sheffield Organic Growers are this week contributing Cucumbers and Garlic to the boxes as well as some beautiful courgettes and strawberries on sale in the shop.
