We have managed to hold our prices steady since spring 2014 but with ever increasing costs we need to make some changes to make sure we can continue to improve the quality and variety of the produce we bring you. So from 1st October 2015, box prices will increase as follows:
Mini boxes from £6.50 to £7
Mini Salad and 1,2,3 Veg from £7.50 to £8
Small boxes from £12 to 12.50
Medium boxes from £17.50 to £18
Large boxes from £23 to £23.50
All the other £12 boxes change to £12.50.
Despite the challenges of delivering to a sparsely populated part of the country, we still make no extra charge for delivery. However, if you come and pick your order up from Low Luckens, you can (for the time being at least) have your order at the old price. And that’s also the way to take advantage of our most generous seasonal special offers.
Here are this week’s bonus offers to add to your regular order.
BARGAIN BONUS APPLES: The first of eight varieties we grow at the Houghton orchard is Discovery. The crop looks very good this year so we can bring you 2 kg for £5 or 5kg for £10 – time to get your juicing machine out!
BONUS TOMATOES: a tasty selection of up to six varieties. £2.50 for 500g
LOW LUCKENS SPECIAL BONUS BOX: a generous selection of our summer produce. £5
BONUS CUCUMBERS: Two for £1
EDIBLE FLOWERS BONUS: a selection of marigold, nasturtium and viola: 10 assorted flowers for £1.
GENERAL BONUS BAG: Choose any ONE item we supply (fruit or veg) and as long as supplies allow, we’ll bring you a bag of it weighing more than you would normally get for the price. £2 a bag.
WHAT’S IN THE GARDEN?
