You may choose from our selection of set price boxes comprised of a set number of organically grown, seasonal, UK grown vegetables. The contents will vary weekly as much as is seasonally possible but we will always aim to include some staples such as potatoes, carrots and onions although we cannot guarantee to include all 3 every week. Some boxes do not include the staples - please see full descriptions below.
Please inform us in the special instructions section of the checkout form if you have any allergies or do not like a particular veg.
Have a look at the link "What's in my box this week?" for an idea of what you can expect to find in each box. This page is updated every Monday evening/Tuesday morning, so check back then to see what is coming in your box that week. The box scheme works around the principles that you do not necessarily know what's coming in your box when you order it by a Sunday evening. Please let Laura or Mike know by email by Tuesday lunch time if there is something in your box you do not like so this can be substituted. The best way to avoid receiving veg in your box you don't like is to include a list of the veg you don't like in the special instructions box of the checkout form. Within reason, we are happy to substitute items if possible.
The descriptions below are a guide only and the box contents will depend upon product quality and availability, if you have any special requirements or would like to discuss which box may best suit you, please don't hesitate to contact us. Please note, the quantities described below may vary depending upon the time of year and the availability of produce.
The Paddock has worked hard to create a network of local producers with whom we work, and as such availability can vary weekly. All of our fruit and veg is always grown organically, we aim to source as locally as possible and at certain times of the year, such as the Summer months there will be an increased amount of produce available locally.
