About the boxes
Each box contains seasonal vegetables all grown here on site at Fat Hen Farm. We grow traditional and specialist vegetables and try to grow produce you can’t get from the supermarket. You will receive an equal share of the harvest that week between all of the customers. This may mean in the early season the boxes contain fewer vegetables and in high season you will find you will have lots of produce. We are always happy to offer advice regarding storage and preserving your food.
Our vegetables are grown using no dig, permaculture methods, we use natural growing techniques and never use chemical fertilisers or pesticides. We work with nature by using mulching, companion planting and by encouraging beneficial birds, worms, insects and pollinators to help us grow our delicious produce. Boxes are picked fresh just before delivery or collection, with each box you receive an email with best storage instructions, as well as recipes! Our vegetables are grown with love and care which you can taste when you eat them and see when you visit the farm!
Extras you can add to your box:
Eggs – six for £2.40, Honey – £6.50 a jar, Beeswax wraps – £12 for a pack of three
