Welcome to our new website!
I'm Alison, and I set up Oak Tree Organics as a small veg-growing and delivery business with three priorities:
1) To grow fresh, healthy food and deliver it locally.
2) To help restore the environment to ecological balance and health through the use of traditional and innovative organic farming methods.
3) To contribute to a more equal and fair society.
We give a share of each week's harvest to Fareshare Southampton and plan to offer work opportunities to people living with social and economic disadvantage, as well as discounted veg for those facing severe economic hardship. We are currently prioritising deliveries to NHS staff and frontline health workers, as well as those who are categorised as vulnerable and are 'shielding' from Coronavirus.
We're growing an acre of field-scale veg (potatoes, onions, carrots, broccoli and more) and 2 x 30m polytunnels of covered crops (salads, beans, tomatoes, peppers, courgettes, aubergines and more). We are based at Northdown Orchard, a family farm that has been farmed organically for 25 years. We've got seeds and small plants in the ground and growing as fast as they can, and until we are able to harvest the full range of veg we will be supplementing our bags with fresh organic produce from other growers, as local as possible.
We're currently offering 4 sizes of veg bags, delivered contact-free to your doorstep or safe place on a Friday:
Small - £12.75, 7 items, small portions, inc. potatoes, onions, carrots, leafy greens, salad/fresh herbs + 2 other items*.
Medium - £15.75, 8 items, medium portions, inc. potatoes, onions, carrots, leafy greens, salad/fresh herbs + 3 other items*.
Large - £19.75, 10 items, large portions, inc. potatoes, onions, carrots, leafy greens, salad/fresh herbs + 5 other items*.
Extra Large - £23.75, 12 items, extra large portions, inc. potatoes, onions, carrots, leafy greens, salad/fresh herbs + 7 other items*.
* 'Other items' will be a variety of seasonal veg, salad, and occasionally fruit, including but not limited to leeks, mushrooms, beetroot, broccoli, cauliflower, sweet potatoes, lemons, peppers, tomatoes, aubergines.
We look forward to receiving your order and delivering your fresh, tasty veg!
