****We are currently in the hungry gap period, when a lot of fruit and veg are imported. The current crisis is causing disruption in the supply chain, as we are no longer eating out in cafe, pubs and restaurants, instead we are eating at home. The situation is changing daily and we simply don’t know what the impact on produce prices might be in the next few months, but as long as the cost of produce which we buy in does not go through the roof, we hope to maintain these new prices (though maybe not for three years this time).
During this crisis we intend to keep you all supplied, however we will need to prioritise older and our most vulnerable customers. We may have to suspend our ban on single use plastic, and, as a last resort, include non organic produce, but we will inform you if we have to do that.
Thank you for supporting your local growers and the box scheme. We will do our best to support you.****
Sourdough bread from Coombeshead Farm is now available with your veg box.
Many of us at Keveral have enjoyed this bread made by our friends Ben and Tom at Coombeshead. The bread is made of water, flour and salt, and nothing more, using a very mild, not made too sour starter, so that the natural sweetness of the grain predominates.
Whilst the bread is with organic flour when its available, not all the ingredients are certified organic and the bread itself is not currently certified as ‘organic’.
We are only supplying 800g loaves which will cost £3.90 and are only available as an extra to a veg box order.
We are going to trial the bread for a few months to see if there is a demand from you all so if you think you will like it, give it a go, sooner rather than later!
We are both delighted with all of the boxes we’ve received to date. You’ve reminded us how bland and ‘samey’ supermarket produce can be. We’re now enjoying soups, stews and other good stuff that is bursting with fresh, wholesome flavours… The quantity you supply is just right for two adults. I started out being sceptical about the fuss and bother of a veg box… especially when we live two hundred metres from two large supermarkets! It didn’t take you long to convince me otherwise.”
