Thoughtful packaging – right for
the product and the environment
Growing, packing and delivering your food ourselves puts us in a unique position to use as little packaging as possible, and to collect what we do use from your doorstep for reuse or recycling.
Nothing is packaged without careful thought. If it doesn’t need it, we won’t wrap it – and where packaging is absolutely necessary, we choose the most sustainable solutions that fit the product’s needs. As much as possible is made of paper or cardboard.
Ordering a veg box means less plastic than buying the equivalent organic veg from the supermarket.
We’ll collect your packaging
Leave out your cardboard boxes, chill packs, and anything you can’t recycle at home. We’ll take it all back to the farm to reuse or recycle. Our veg boxes can be reused up to 10 times!
We only use packaging when it’s strictly necessary to prevent food waste. All that can be is packed into the veg boxes loose, and we’re always finding new ways to use less. Since 2017…
By the end of 2020, we’ll be using certified home compostable plastic for all our punnets and bags – made from renewable materials which are quick to break down.

Rather than doing what we assumed was right, we wanted to make sure we were making sustainable packaging choices. Read the results of our sustainability study with Exeter University
