In The Beginning
Coleshill Organics was started on a farm at Watchfield in 1995. From an initial two acres we now have about thirty acres in total. The box scheme now operates from the walled garden in Coleshill.
The business grew out of our passion to provide local people with the highest quality fresh produce - our enthusiasm and joy for truly flavoursome "real" food is reinforced every evening when we cook what we have grown and taste the difference.
The 'WOW' Factor
We have carefully chosen over 80 different varieties of vegetables for their taste and not necessarily their looks. We talk to our customers regularly and get feed back on what has gone down well.
Here's what they say:
´Thanks for another week of more lovely boxes´
´Thank you for providing not only excellent produce but service too´
´I really enjoy my box and look forward to Thursday. The veg are delicious and the recipes great´
´It's like Christmas once a week´
´I have tried things that I never would have bought from the supermarket´
In 2004 we won ´Box Scheme of the Year´ and ´Horticultural Producer of the Year´. Here's what the judges (which included Raymond Blanc and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall) said of our boxes:
´The freshness, quantity, colour and variety of produce in the box was what marked it as a winner; from the rainbow chard to the beef steak tomatoes´.
