Our Organic Veg Box, Medium, Serves 2-3

Grown and sourced by The Best Organic Farm Shop in Britain 2016, Pillars of Hercules in Fife, Scotland.


Contains an array of the season's best organic veg (and a little bit of fruit) at the peak of freshness, sourced from our local organic farmer from Fife.

Each week, your box will contain amazing organic Scottish staples like tatties, carrots and onions, as well as seasonal delights, for example Pillars' own salad bags, pak choi and kale. Plus there's an organic fruit or two which they source from other organic producers when their own isn't available. Their boxes are primarily split 90% veg to 10% fruit and serve 2-3 people.

Although every box changes depending on the season, there's generally a selection of root vegetables, brassicas, salad items, tubers and onions.

Many of the vegetables selected are from speciality heritage varieties.

Some of these homegrown varieties have an incredibly short season, so ordering a weekly delivery of our organic veg box will guarantee that you don't miss one!


Meet the Supplier: Pillars of Hercules

Based in Falkland, Fife, this long established mecca for all things veggie and organic, is a welcome addition to our foodie family. Organic farmer, Bruce, has dedicated his life to growing the finest organic fruit, vegetables and herbs, with new varieties to excite your palate. It was over 30 years ago that Bruce started his Fife-based organic farm, Pillars of Hercules, from small but hopeful beginnings with a few veg in a shed with an honesty box, to the busy place it is today with a team of around 40.

It is their hard work, plus all the effort and enthusiasm of the volunteers, that have shaped this place. But the driving force has always been Bruce...his vision, his perseverance (especially in the harshest of Scottish winters!)

Lovely things in this box and all very fresh
Fantastic! Highly recommended!

I ordered fresh fish box (large), smoked fish box, fruit and veg box, butter,
two lots of tonic water and a Poacher's Pie.
All arrived, on time, snugly packed in insulated wool pockets and ice. The produce is outstanding - all of it! I am coming back for more.
Really fresh, excellent quality produce. Good to be able to support a local business.
Exceptional fruit & veg box delivered on the date requested. Will definitely use again.
The veg have great flavour
The veg was so fresh and so tasty when we steamed it. All in all fantastic, well done to Gillian and her gang.
Today is the first box I have tried. What a splendid selection of top
quality produce and so beautifully packed and presented.

I shall certainly order again.

Thanks again,

kind regards

Mrs. Lyn Humphreys

P.S. Your emails are also a joy to receive!
I received the parcel of veg and fruityesterday - absolute;y lovely and so well packaged. Brilliant - I will be ordering again soon.
Fresh local produce worth the money

Loved this box! I've tried out a few over the years and this was by far the cleanest, freshest most interesting one I've received. Delicate items were wrapped to keep them fresh and bruise-free. The quality of the produce was excellent. It was packaged really nicely in two recycled boxes and delivery was quick. Not the cheapest, but worth every penny to support local economy in my opinion.
The best fresh vegetables& fruit we have tasted in a long time
