Chris has just left for his summer holidays so i'll be trying to keep you up to date for the next few weeks (please bear with me!).

So here goes:


  • New Potatoes (Ulster Scepter-on the waxy side so good for boiling) 800g
  • Carrots 600g (UK now!)
  • Onions 500g (Also UK)
  •  Broccoli 400g
  • Spinach Bag
  • Broad beans 600g
  • Tomatoes 400g

B's will have 400g of Matt West, Sheffield Organic Grower Courgettes

D's will have an extra 800g potatoes and a Lettuce (some of which are also from Matt)

E's will have 400g of Matt's mini Cucumbers and a Lettuce (check out the Cucumber Curry recipe I added to the recipe section on the website)

L & M's will get an additional bag of kale (first of the new season!)

As I was typing this in it occurred to me that this will be the first time in about 10months (or quite some time at least) that all sizes of the veg boxes will be UK! Hurray!

(The poor old growers are still struggling with unseasonable weather so please dont be too upset with us if we have to substitute from the above recipe!)

For the K boxes:

  • Royal Gala Apples 700g
  • Bananas 600g
  • A lemon
  • Oranges 700g
  • 2 Avocado's 
  • A pineapple portion

And the Q's will have 400g of Sicilian new season seedless green grapes

In other  Beanies news....

It was the Sheffield Organic Growers open day last sunday which Dave went along to,  so here's a few photo's from where the magic happens!
