Gold Award Winners!

We did it! At the Soil Association Organic Food Awards ceremony last Thursday night, we won a fantastic gold award for our Variety veg box (we had to choose one of our wide range to enter), and overall runner up in the category! The awards were a great celebration of organic produce, from flour and cakes to baby food, chocolate and beer. They were presented by long-standing organic food champion, writer and broadcaster Hardeep Singh Kohli, and we were thrilled with our prize. The overall winner of the category was another small box scheme based in Devon, and we were the only two gold award winners for veg boxes in the whole country – beating all the big national schemes! The judges said our boxes were a “foodies delight; excellent variety of seasonal produce. The pot of Greek basil the icing on the cake. Heart-warming commitment to the local community and the organic movement as a whole. Worthy gold and close runner-up.” So we carried on celebrating with some organic beer on the train home late Thursday night…
