    I receive fortnightly deliveries of fruit and veg, plus local eggs and honey. Always great produce, and I like supporting businesses that care about the environment and reducing plastic waste.

    Delivery days are now my favorite day of the week. Great variety of veg at very reasonable prices. My food bills have massively dropped while the quailty of items have dramatically increased.

    My friends at work also very happy with all the amazing vegetarian/vegan food im letting try.

    Big thank you to Laura and the team.

    Very happy with the produce and flexibility offered by The Paddock. Lovely tasty produce and we look forward to the eggs , sausages and asparagus in particular! Great not to be tied to weekly order- I do an order every 2-3 weeks and that suits our little family.

    The Paddock ethics and food is so amazing and refreshing.

    The produce is always so fresh and full of positivity. Tastes delicious. Different types of veg and now a pantry! Wow!

    Ditch the supermarket and go with Paddock supplies, local where possible, organic always, ethically sound food supplies. We all need this in today's climate.

    I discovered The Paddock’s lovely website very recently, and was completely ‘with’ them by the quaint tagline: fresh food delivered from the land to your hand. Well, who doesn't want that?

    After browsing the truly tempting selection of food order options, I settled for the Medium Veg Box and a dozen fresh eggs. What followed was impressive, personal email correspondence from Laura, the owner of The Paddock.

    Delivery day came. I wasn't expecting this, bloody brilliant value! This is the good life people: mud still on and vibrant-veggie colours. (To be honest, all veg should be vibrant, but… have you ever had a tasteless carrot from Tesco? I have.) The eggs were perfect- yummy orange yolks which held together really well when poached. All of the veg was extremely tasty and actually lasted longer than the usual supermarket shelf life.

    For a reasonable £15 I received:

    – Half a dozen fresh eggs
    – Organic beets
    – Organic purple sprouting broccoli
    – Organic carrots
    – Organic leeks
    – Organic mushrooms
    – Organic large savoy cabbage
    – Organic large spring onions
    – Organic carnival squash
    – Organic kale
    – Organic salad lettuce

    Final musings: Everything that an impersonal, corporate supermarket is not. If you desire good value, organic food then we highly recommend The Paddock.

    Really enjoying the variety in these boxes. Myself and my husband eat a lot of veg, the medium veggie box keeps us going for an entire week. You can definitely taste the difference in the paddocks fresh greens compared to supermarket counterparts. I look forward to each weeks delivery to see which yummy goodies I get to eat and what meals I can conjure up. At the moment I'm really enjoying the beetroot, Kale and Kohlrabi. We can't wait for pumpkin and parsnip season.

    Just wanted to say that I'm loving the new bad of mixed salad leaves - they are really delicious. Hints of mustard & peppery.

    I've had a regular delivery from the beginning and have varied from veg, to the Mediterranean box and now a mixed fruit and veg box. We always have eggs which are delicious. The produce always tastes wonderful and I look forward to building my meals around the content of the box every week. Will be ordering another hamper at Christmas as last years was perfect. Strawberry jam with champagne for the Christmas cross aunts and the most delicious range of veg pickles and cheeses. The locally baked bread the a Paddock sources is delicious too. Highly recommend!

    Hi Laura

    Can I just thank you for the speedy supply of Potatoes and Eggs,

    I was most impressed with the freshness of both eggs and your potatoes, the yokes of the eggs were a lovely deep yellow unlike the shop bought free range.
    The potatoes were so good for cooking, easy for cleaning and the taste was so good, I hope you have a good supply as looking forward to lots more.

    Thanks again, George Hayes

I have had different varieties of potatoes, all have been firm, lovely and white and they are delicious boiled, roasted, baked and mashed. The eggs have beautiful yellow yolks (I have even had a few double yolks), they have a beautiful taste prepared in all ways. Knowing they are from a local producer, so fresh and from really happy free range chickens is wonderful. I am now looking forward to trying the cheeses.

A very happy customer.
