How it works

Beanies has been delivering Organic fruit and vegetables throughout Sheffield for more than 20 years and was one of the first Organic Box schemes in the city. We select produce both from local growers and from suppliers further afield to offer a seasonably-biased yet interesting variety throughout the year. We never use air-freighted produce in the boxes.

You can tailor your delivery to suit your needs – for example, a weekly veg box plus a fruit box every fortnight. If you don’t like a certain fruit or veg, let us know and we can leave these out – we will replace with something of similar value.

We apply a £1.50 discount to each extra box you have with that delivery. You can also order extra items from the shop with your delivery, with the following charges applied:

  • If you receive just one Veg or Fruit box there is NO CHARGE – a £1.50 delivery charge is already incorporated into the box price.
  • If you receive two or more boxes there is NO CHARGE – and the £1.50 delivery charge is removed from the subsequent boxes
  • You can receive up to 5 product lines in addition to your boxes and there will be NO CHARGE
  • If you receive veg boxes and MORE than 5 product lines there is a Packing Charge of £3.50 to cover this cost.
  • If you don’t receive organic veg boxes but do put in an a la carte order each week – regardless of the number of product lines, this will incur a packing charge of £3.50 and a delivery charge of £1.50 – a total of £5.00

If you are going away or want to pause for a while, just let us know by email or phone. You can make changes or additions to your delivery up til midday the day before (although please do give more notice if you can!).

You can pay for your box in the shop, by phone or you can set up a Direct Debit which we take monthly. Speak to your driver about which method best suits you.

The contents of the boxes varies each week as we make seasonal selections but the information on the right gives you some idea of what you can expect.
