How it Works

We buy in our produce from local suppliers (as local as we can find!) who meet our strict criteria for healthy and "climate friendly" food. We currently make up bags once a week, for delivery to collection points across the South Pennines. So if you'd like a bag of fresh, seasonal vegetables every week or fortnight, to be collected from a convenient outlet near you, just follow the steps below and you can get started within a week. You'll be eating healthy food, supporting the local economy and helping to stop climate change, all as part of your weekly shopping experience. Well done you!

You can place your order on our website here. You will need have an account with us before you can make any orders or changes.

Take a look at the Collection Points page and decide where you'd like to pick up your bag.

Step 2

Next head over to the Veg Bags page and select your bag. Then:

  • add in any extras you'd like to receive along with your bag
  • decide whether you need a physical copy of the newsletter along with your emailed version, and then
  • select how often you'd like to receive the bags - both weekly and fortnightly bags are available.

You can change these at anytime by logging back into your account or by getting in touch with us directly. 

Step 3

This will take you through to the checkout page, where you can check through your order to make sure you're happy with everything. If you are, then fill out the billing information and click confirm order to be taken through to Go Cardless, to set up easy weekly/fortnightly recurring payments - manageable by you through your account here on our site.

Step 4

Create your Go Cardless account and set up your Direct Debit payment. For more general information on the Go Cardless service click here.  For more information on how you are protected by a Direct Debit agreement in the UK  click here

Step 5

Start receiving your weekly or fortnightly bag of local vegetables to a collection point near you, and manage your account with us online by using the 'my account' button at the top right hand corner of the website. Changes can be made to bags and holidays booked anytime up until the Sunday night before delivery.

That's it, you're all set! If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to contact us and we'll be happy to help.
