A few weeks before Christmas, I had a leaflet through the door from a fruit and veg company who do a box scheme, called 5 A Day Box. Being an admirer of anybody who makes an effort to go door-to-door dropping leaflets in order to promote their business – we get very few out here in the sticks – I decided to give them a go, and just before Christmas, I ordered one of their small sized fruit and veg boxes. It was delivered, promptly, by a charming man and his teenage son, and the produce (although neither local nor organic) was plentiful, fresh and of a wide variety. I was really impressed. So much so, that I’ve had another one delivered this week.
I’ve been really impressed so far, and although in an ideal world, I would prefer the produce was more local, and more organic, unfortunately that route hasn’t worked for me, and this one is doing so at the moment. Thumbs up to the 5 A Day Box People!
