The Cumbrian potatoes are Ambo. The new potatoes from Cumbria will be late this year because of the continuing abnormal position of the jet-stream giving rise to unusually low temperatures for the time of year. The same phenomenon means our strawberries are still green – this time last year we were picking ripe fruit. We also have English asparagus, leeks, mushrooms, carrots, green cabbage and onions as well as clementines from Spain.
We have 25 different box types and they may or may not contain the items listed above. If you would like to receive any of them, let us know by Friday of the previous week and, if stocks (and the value of the box) allow, we’ll include them in your box.
PLEASE RETURN YOUR EMPTY BOXES!
