North-East Organic Growers

Box scheme information

Our box scheme is a pretty simple system. Customers place a regular order for the type of veg and fruit bags they want, and contact us to add extra items to their order. The veg is harvested and bags put together at our premises near Bedlington. On Wednesdays and Thursdays the bags are delivered to our Collection points throughout the region and then collected by you.

Here is our policy on using plastic packaging (DRAFT)

We take great care to keep the use of plastic packaging to a minimum:

  1. Any packaging that we send out can be returned to us and we will reuse or recycle it. Please leave them at your link where they will be collected
  2. Until we find a viable alternative, we use small plastic bags when we consider it essential for keeping your produce in good condition, e.g. cut salad leaves, for anything else we use paper bags.
  3. We have no control over some bought in items that are in plastic bags.
