We will be offering the usual medium and large veg bags for the runup to Christmas, but will also be offering a Bumper box (£30) for those of you who need a little more veg over the Christmas period but also to keep you going for a little longer than usual, as there will be a two week pause before we restart the bags again on the week commencing 11th January 2021.
So, our final veg bag deliveries/collections will be on Tuesday 22nd December (for those of you who usually get your veg on a Tuesday) and Wednesday 23rd December (for those of you who usually get your veg on Fridays). Please note that on your account on Buckybox it will still say delivery day is 25th December!
Please note, that all orders will need to be in by Saturday 19th December for these deliveries.
We are offering the Christmas veg bags plus extras that you can add onto your order. If you would like to change your order from the regular bag that you get, it is probably easiest to add a new order for the Christmas week by logging onto buckybox (https://store.buckybox.com/trill-farm-garden) and then just make sure that you change payment for that week. Then you can put an order in to change back to your usual bag for January. Sorry - we realise that the Buckybox system isn't the most flexible - we are looking to change over to a more user friendly system next year!!
Alternatively just email us with any order change and we can sort it out for you!
In addition to the "extras" that will be available from us over the Christmas week (Onions, Potatoes, Sprouts, Red Cabbage, Squash, Parsnips, Leeks, Swede, Salad, Bread) there will be an opportunity to donate to help get food to people experiencing food poverty in our area. All donations will be used to supply the food bank with good fresh produce.
Please make sure you tick "Include extra items with next delivery only" when you add any extra orders onto your Christmas week order.
New Market Gardening and Salad Growing course dates for next year
We are excited to announce new dates for our popular 3 day Introduction to Market Gardening course and our Salad Growing: Spring & Summer and Salad Growing: Autumn & Winter courses. We have a new addition to our Market Gardening Course, bringing in the wonderful Lally Owen and Tomas Carolsfeld from Springtail Farm who will be giving us a farm tour of their relatively new market garden. One day will be with us at Trill Farm Garden and one day with Ruth Hancock at Fresh and Green near Ottery St Mary. Find out more information and book on our Market Gardening course page.
Our seasonal Salad Growing courses will focus on how we grow salad through the year, with information on propagation, successions and planning in the Salad Growing: Spring & Summer course and polytunnel production, growing for restaurants, harvesting techniques, pests and diseases and irrigation in the Salad Growing: Autumn & Winter course. Find out more information on these courses on the Salad Growing: Spring & Summer and Salad Growing: Autumn & Winter course pages.
