Westmill Organics is Stopping its Vegetable Box scheme

Written by Pete Richardson on . Posted in Latest News

It is with regret that I write to tell you that Westmill Organics is stopping, with immediate effect, its veg box delivery scheme. This week, beginning 18 July, will be your last delivery.

Over the last few months of looking at the economics of running a small box scheme, even with cutting back expenditure to the basics and keeping the boxes affordable, I have realised the local delivery part of the business is unsustainable.

I am sorry that I will not be able to continue to do this after successfully bringing organic vegetables to your homes for nearly 20 years. The good news is that I shall continue growing organic vegetables at Westmill and selling them wholesale to shops, restaurants and pubs, as well as for other box schemes (see below).

And for those of you living locally, we will continue to stock our Veg Hut with £1-a-bag selections of vegetables to collect by the gate at Westmill Farm, so please pop in whenever you can.

Here are some of the other places where you can buy or eat our delicious organic veg:

Bloomfields, Shrivenham, High street

Swindon Pulse Wholefoods, Curtis Street, Swindon

Cultivate, Oxford (Veg van and farmers’ markets)

The Royal Oak, Bishopstone (Organic pub)

The Chop House, Wood Street, Old Town, Swindon

I also hope you will continue to support the organic veg box concept. Below is as list of other local organic veg box suppliers you may wish to consider. These box schemes will be buying some of their produce from us at Westmill–and all of them are local, independent businesses:

North Aston Organics (Oxford Area) – Tel: 01869 347702

Coleshill Organics (Swindon and villages) – Tel: 01793 861070

Purton House Organics (Swindon area) – Tel: 01793 772287

I am sorry for such short notice in finishing the service here at Westmill, and would appreciate it if you can settle up your final invoice as soon as possible. Please be in contact with the office if you are in any doubt as to how much you owe.

I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude for your custom over the years and wish you well in sourcing other suppliers so you can continue to get the enjoyment and health benefits of tasty, organic vegetables.

With my very best wishes,

Pete Richardson Proprietor and Organic Grower, Westmill Organics
