Christmas Veg Boxes: What you need to know!

I’m writing today with lots and lots of Christmassy information so you can start preparing! There’s a lot of info, but for most of you, there’s no need to do anything, unless you want to opt out of the bumper bag. Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions!

Order Change Deadline

Because it’s such a busy time of year, and we’re dealing with so much extra veg, we’ve got an early order change deadline for veg boxes in the week commencing 16th December. Please let us know of any holidays or changes by 9am on 9th December, or we won’t be able to guarantee that the changes will go through.

We’re back for the new year! Veg boxes resume!

Bumper Boxes

In the week commencing 16th December, you’ll receive a veg box that’s twice as large as usual.

This counts as your box for the weeks commencing 16th and 23rd December, so you’ll be charged for two boxes.

If you’d rather get your usual box in the week commencing 16th December, please let us know by 9th December.

All boxes will have the Christmassy staples- potatoes, carrots, parsnips, red cabbage, sprouts, unless they’re on your opt-out list by 9th December.

Fortnightly Customers

It’s a little different for fortnightly customers. All of you, regardless of your usual schedule, will get your usual box in the week commencing 16th December. You’ll be charged as usual.

Monthly Customers

If you get your delivery in the 3rd or 4th week of the month, you’ll get your box in the week commencing 16th December. So if you’d usually get your box in the week commencing 23rd December, you’ll get it a week early. This will be a normal box, and you’ll be charged as usual.

That’s everything! Don’t forget to order your Christmas tree, handmade wreath, and lots of presents from the Locavore Christmas Shop, and to sign up for some of our Saturday night workshops to make your Christmas as eco-friendly as it is festive. It’s not too late to book for tomorrow’s decoration-making session! There’s no better way to get into the spirit of the season than some environmentally-minded Christmas crafts.

Have a wonderful festive season to those of you celebrating!
