We are absolutely delighted to have teamed up with Mungoswells Malt & Milling to bring you fantastic flour that is not only organic but is grown, milled and packaged in East Lothian.

The mill is run by the McDowall family, with Major Andrew McDowall inventing the world's first electric tractor in the 1920s! Some of the early wheat seeds from the 1800s are being multiplied at the moment to give us a flavour of the past, which it is hoped we will get a taste of once they are ready for milling!

Their flour has dark flecks in it coming from the bran, and which you won't see in commercial flours, but which is more wholesome than processed white flours. If you wish to read more information, please visit their website at https://www.mungoswells.co.uk/.

Our first piece of news

Read More

Welcome to our new website! 


We are very excited to unveil our new site. We would like to say it's been a labour of love...well, it's definitely been a labour!

As you can see there is now room for much more content on the site, which is great news for you. We have informational sections on what's seasonal, how to store your fruit and veg, the dreaded 'Hungry Gap', and there's now a section for recipes! We've also included a page for delivery areas as well as an FAQ to cover just about most things we could think of.

Finally we have a blog! This was a nightmare to manage with our last site and made posting an ordeal. No more though! With a bit of administrative manoeuvring Thursday has been freed up to concentrate on getting information out to you, our customers, and to give you more of a connection to the farm and your food. We are really excited about this, and can't wait to start posting.

We have a new order form in keeping with the old one. You will notice that we do not have the capacity to accept online payments, but that is coming. As some of you will no doubt be aware, we are still running on the same database as we have for the past 17 years. It is very tired and cannot keep pace with today's needs.

The website has been designed by John, and his team, at Enterprise Systems with a new database in mind. Work can finally begin on it now that the website has been completed. This will allow you to order and pay for your boxes via the website. It will also allow you to add extras onto your order and to suspend your order, as well as letting you subscribe to newsletters and more, saving us a lot of time and taking some of the pressure of the administration side of things. It is going to take more than a few minutes to get it all up and running, but we are on a journey and we see the destination ahead more closely than we did this time last year.

So, have a nosy around and tell us what you think!
