Organic, fresh, locally grown veg and fruit delivered to your door. Red Earth Organics is part of Hockerwood Park, a family farm in Southwell. Our seven acre field, polytunnel, and orchard are fully certified as organic by the Soil Association and we grow the majority of the contents of your veg boxes ourselves. In the summer and autumn, almost every item in your box will have been planted and harvested by myself here on our farm. We grow more than 30 varieties of fruit and vegetables throughout the year, including staples such as potatoes, lettuces, tomatoes and apples. One of my aims is to help people rediscover varieties of vegetables which have fallen out of favour, often due to commercial reasons, and to increase the range of seasonal vegetables to enable creative cooking at every time of the year. In the last few years, our customers have been able to sample less familiar varieties of cucumber, including an eyecatching and delicious golden globe; physalis, also known as cape gooseberry, usually imported by supermarkets; and agretti, similar to samphire. We have even grown melons and globe artichokes with great success. When sourcing crops which don't grow well in our heavy clay soil, such as carrots and parsnips, we liaise with other regional growers to minimise any unavoidable foodmiles. We are a family run organic market garden in Nottinghamshire, and deliver organic fruit and veg boxes to your door. We limit our delivery radius to 25 miles, because we believe that local is best for the environment and for the community. A person, not a brand. We are not a distributor for other farms; we sow, grow and pack most of the veg in your box by hand ourselves. You talk directly to the person who grows your veg, because we believe that is how we can give you the best service. If you call me about your veg box, you know who you are talking to, and I know what I am talking about!
