Read the below information then sign up here – We have sold all our veg box shares for 2018. Email us if you are interested in receiving a box next year.
Veg boxes – fresh, local, seasonal and naturally grown.
We grow vegetables in our half acre market garden using ecological/organic methods that build healthy, living soils to produce fresh, nutrient dense food. We never use any chemical sprays or fertilizer to grow our veg. For most of the growing season the vast majority of the veg box will be made up from produce grown by us, in our own garden. If needed we will supplement our own produce with organic veg from other Scottish farms.
We also sell free range eggs from our happy hens, either from the farm or as part of your veg box.
What’s in our boxes?
A typical veg box in the height of summer could contain a selection from – cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, salad bag, whole lettuce, radishes, herbs, chard, kale, carrots, broad beans, mange tout, onions, beetroot, turnips, potatoes and garlic.
When are our veg boxes available?
Our veg boxes will be available every week for 22 weeks from the 29th of June to the 23rd of November.
Where do we deliver to?
Our veg boxes are delivered on a Friday evening to several pick up points where you can then collect your box. These are:
- Tap o’ Noth Farm
- Rhynie (private garage shed in village, we will contact you with the address)
- Huntly (Forsyth Plumbers, near Asda)
- Lumsden (Scottish Sculpture Workshop)
- Alford (Donside Heating)
If we do not deliver to a drop off point in your town we may be able to set one up if we have enough custom – so tell your friends – or if it is on our route. We are happy to add Kennethmont to our delivery route if we can secure enough customers.
What size are your veg boxes?
We have two sizes available to choose from:
- Small – 1-2 person (living by yourself or a moderate veg eaters)
- Large – 3-4 person (perfect for a family or those on a vegetarian diet)
How much are our veg boxes?
As a signed up member of Tap o’ Noth Farm CSA you will receive a veg box every week for 22 weeks, containing a share of our farms harvest.
We ask that our members commit to supporting us throughout the season by paying for their veg boxes at the start of the growing season. When you sign up you sign up for the full 22 weeks. If you are away one week then you must organise someone else to pick up your share box for you – a great way to meet your neighbour by sharing your veg!
