Wild COuntry Organics Adrian Izzard
30 Apr 2019
We've been wanting to source produce from Wild Country Organics for a while but until the Better Food Shed (a new not-for-profit wholesaler that connects small scale organic growers with London's small veg box schemes) was set up, he was only selling to the Growing Communities box scheme. Now the...

It's been a while since we talked what we're doing to reduce our plastic use at Crop Drop. It still remains a very tricky area because we're caught between two very serious issues - food waste and plastic waste. When it comes to food, waste is more significant than packaging in terms of climate...

We're very pleased to be sourcing produce from Hughes Organics - we've wanted to for a long time, and did manage it for a brief period a couple of years back, until a few factors converged (our small order sizes, his produce availability and cost of delivery) to make it no longer viable. Now thanks...

crop drop staff and farmers
08 Jan 2019
It's that time of year for reflection and setting intentions for the year ahead. I find it's a great practice to review what was achieved, what didn't go to plan and get clear about things you want to do better in the coming year. And also don't forget to acknowledge what went right as well and...
Bob of Sarah Green's organics harvesting cauliflowers
22 Nov 2018
Well here we are. It's winter - we had out first frosts this morning!  So it's about time I gave you a bit of a flavour of what fruit and veg to expect in the coming months. You can be forgiven for thinking winter is a lean time for local food. But we actually have quite a lot of variety to...
discovery apples
28 Mar 2018
You may have noticed a lack of apples in the fruit bags over the last few weeks. This is because there's currently a global apple shortage. The UK apples usually see us through all the way until May but not this year. Due to the frost last April a lot of fruit was lost – the UK apple harvest was...
seedlings in spring
22 Mar 2018
The spring equinox yesterday marked the beginning of a new season. We've put the snow behind us (hopefully) and are starting to enjoy more sunshine and warmer(ish) days. But no sooner than we don our shorts and start sparking up the BBQ, the grey clouds will likely roll in and hailstones pelt down...

moroccan blood orange salad recipe
12 Jan 2018
It's true that winter veg is very rooty - but that doesn't mean it's all hearty stews and soups. You can make light, refreshing and filling salads by pairing roast roots with winter fruits. The aromatic parsnip, the floral celeriac, the sturdy carrot can be lifted with the zing of orange or little...
