EAT YOUR GREENS VEG BOXES

Getting a veg box delivery is a great way of eating seasonally and provides a fab source of inspiration for your weekly meals.  At The Vale Grocer we put a lot of care into planning your seasonal vegetable box, and get great feedback from customers on the variety we manage to provide.

What's in the boxes changes with the seasons, but we'll always give you potatoes, onions and carrots.  We've provided a few example boxes below to give you an idea.

We grow our own vegetables and soft fruit in Prion using environmentally friendly methods and without chemicals, and supplement with organic veg from Organic North. 

 

Our veg boxes are always organic, always seasonal. We try to limit plastic and packaging, and reuse as much as we can. More here on how we try to tread lightly.

When you sign up for a box we need to check we can fit you on the round and then confirm which day we'll deliver.  Once we know the box size you'd like and your address/directions we will let you know when you'll get your first box. We'll also send your first monthly invoice - most customers pay by BACS or set up a standing order.


We ask that you don't cancel during the first month as the admin involved in adding a new customer costs us time and money. Also it may take you a few weeks to adjust to using a box rather than cooking with vegetables you've chosen yourself.

After the first month, we'll issue regular monthly invoices by email. You can cancel at any time by emailing us at least 10 days ahead of the box you would like to cancel.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS TELL US

(these things make us happy!)

 

I am always really happy with the quality and seasonal variety of vegetables in our weekly box and the whole family looks forward to Thursday to see what’s in it! It has completely changed the way I cook for the better and we feel healthier. I also love knowing that it’s from just down the road!

Guys thank you so much as always for this weeks fantastic box. We had forgotten all about sprout tops & how much we loved them last year.


I can’t quite believe we get all we do for £15 to be honest.

Thank you so much for the box. First thing I did when I got home was eat one of the delicious apples. 

The smell of the veg was lovely in my kitchen. I’d like to upgrade to the regular box ASAP as I’ve renewed my love for vegetables!
