2) Pesticide Free Produce
Under organic certification, all our organic produce is grown free from nasty artificial pesticides and fertilisers, making them healthier for you and better for our planet.
Pesticides are an extreme pollutant, generating tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions in their production, as well as polluting rivers and soils, damaging natural ecosystems and habitats and reducing populations of pollinator species. Supporting organic farming by choosing an organic vegetable delivery furthers the fight against pesticide use in agriculture and our reliance on them for growing food.
Additionally, the best way to ensure pesticides don’t end up on your plate and therefore in our bodies, where they can have potentially harmful effects, is by choosing organic fruit and vegetables.
3) Less Waste
Our organic vegetable and fruit deliveries help minimise food packaging and waste in your weekly shop, using 100% recyclable or reusable packaging, free from plastic where possible.
Our boxes are made from recycled cardboard, filled with sustainable WoolCool lining to keep your organic food fresh and protected during transit.
All the materials used to package your organic groceries can also be returned to us to be used over and over again in our free packaging return scheme. Find out more about this here.

4) More Nutrients
Studies have found that organically farmed fruit and veg on average contain more vitamins, minerals, enzymes and micronutrients than that which is conventionally farmed.
This means organic food is much more beneficial for our bodies, farmed with care and attention to natural processes, making it better in quality and taste as a result.
By buying organic produce, you are ensuring that you are getting the most nutrients out of the food you eat, and your body is benefiting from it in the best way possible.
5) Supporting Sustainability
Choosing organic vegetables and organic meat is arguably the most sustainable way to consume your food.
As we’ve touched on in previous points, an organic grocery delivery, reduces waste and supports the move away from using pesticides in farming, but also benefits the planet in many more ways.
Every aspect of certified organic food production has been devised to be as sustainable as possible, to provide you with delicious, quality food without having a negative impact on the planet. From the way our organic produce is grown, in healthy soils, using agroecological methods which protect and utilise the natural processes already happening all around us, to the packaging we put it in and our closed loop approach to food waste, putting it back into compost to be used to grow more in our very own Market Garden.
