Some of the schemes listed here are run by single farms, such as Organic by Order who are located in Clungunford, in South Shropshire. Others like Boxfresh Organics are run by growing communities, or groups of farms working together. Selecting from any of the schemes we have listed, you can be sure you are getting locally sourced, seasonal produce and the warm feeling that comes from supporting the decent folk who work the land and fish the seas to keep us fed.

Whether you are interested in the health benefits of organic, farm produced food, the smaller carbon footprint of local produce, supporting your local rural economy, or the desire to eat vegetables that actually taste how they should, there is no doubting that veg box schemes are enjoying a renaissance. In a rural county like Shropshire it is perhaps not surprising that we are spoilt for choice when it comes to box schemes. Listed here are what we would class as traditional box schemes, and we aren't just limited to vegetables.
