Welcome to our Veg Box scheme, we’re really excited you’ve chosen to support us & be part of the Root Connections project. We’re looking forward to sharing the fruits of our labour with you & journey through the seasons together.

Fresh, seasonal, chemical free Veg Boxes delivered to the Collection Hub of your choice.

Our veg is packed full of flavour & nutrition, but not just good for you – it’s good for your local community too. We’re a ‘not for profit’ CIC - community interest company, so the money generated from our sales is reinvested in to the project, to support our residents living in community with us & to help bring an end to rural homelessness.

The wooden boxes have been made by our Dairy House residents & decorated with our Root Connections logo. We ask on your first purchase you place an order for a wooden box for £10 & this is refundable should you no longer want to continue with a regular order, but yours to keep if you’re happy with your veg & you wish to carry on supporting us.

The only plastic we use is for our salad bags & these can be washed out & reused.

Our veg is grown to Organic principles – without the use of chemicals or pesticides & we only use Organic compost & seed.

More often than not the veg will have been picked & packed by our residents & volunteers the morning of your collection day; fresh & packed with flavour & nutrition.

Our Collection Hubs are local to us & logistics have been carefully planned to minimise mileage & carbon footprint. The Hubs are all en-route to existing delivery destinations – therefore, minimising our impact on our local environment.

We aim to keep the boxes going throughout the winter, but may need to collaborate with other growers to keep us going through the ‘hungry gap’ & to top up any shortfall. These growers have been carefully selected to fit with our ethics & will be local & Social Enterprises in their own right – we love to work in community & support other local growers wherever possible.

We have two sizes of Veg Box; the large is designed for a family of four & the small with a couple in mind.

How it works:

If this is your first order please purchase a wooden box & then choose the size of your Veg Box & add to basket. Then choose your ‘Collection Hub’ & proceed to the ‘Checkout’ – we’ll handle the rest for you & you can look forward to picking up your box within the time frame listed. On your next order, please bring your empty wooden box & collect a new full Veg Box – we will recycle all the returned empty boxes & use the following week.


Please note the deadline for ordering is 11am the day before your chosen collection day.

Thanks so much – we’re really looking forward to growing together.
