Veg Box News 17.02.14
Rain, rain and more rain! Who wants to bet we still get a hosepipe ban in the summer? Thankfully, as we have our own water supply from the natural aquifer that sits under Bradley so we don’t have that as a problem. Our plants are mostly watered with the finest Lincolnshire chalk filtered water.
On the landscape this week we have been doing prep-work in the poly tunnels and more tidying up. We’ve had a move around to enable us to create storage for the chipper we have acquired. We are pleased, as getting our own kit means we don’t have to rely on other people and become more self sustaining.
This week we have picked up a trial contract for another local cafe so if that works out well, then again we will be moving towards being more self sustaining. The lottery funding we received runs out end of March so it is really important that we generate as much of our own revenue as we can. We are keen to try and get new customers in the streets that we already deliver to, so if you know your neighbours or fancy putting some post cards through a few doors, please do let us know.
Sean was interviewed by Estuary TV, as we are the first place in Lincolnshire to sell British Baked Beans. Although they are made in Norfolk the food miles are still considerably less than normal baked beans, plus you are supporting British Farmers and helping grow crops that naturally put nitrogen in the soil, reducing the use of artificial fertilisers. You can of course order these with your veg box.
We’re all about sustainability and are proud to be in partnership with Good Energy http://www.goodenergy.co.uk/affiliates/green-futures, a green energy supplier whose electricity comes from certified renewables like sunshine, wind and rain.Switch to Good Energy quoting GE2209 and help transform the way we make and use energy in the UK.
