Ever thankful for rain, however...

The Farmer's WifeMarch 21, 2021

…enough is enough, for now! We've had so much rain in the past week or so that it's nigh on impossible to get out into the field. The wheelbarrow is stuck in the mud somewhere, crops are set to burst and we may not manage to get out and harvest,...

Autumn - week 2 - and how our boxes changed :)

The Farmer's WifeMarch 07, 2021

We had a cracker of a week last week, with many of you enjoying our new box line up. The Autumn Family Basics Box hit the spot and we sold out early! Juggling picking and inventory is tricky, so please be sure to order early in case we sell out before you jump online! As promised our weekly boxes will only have minimal changes depending on what Hapi is picking and what is best value at the markets. This way you can feel confident that you are ordering the right box every week. Let's take a look at this week's changes…
