What's In Your Organic Fruit & Veg Box? (18 & 20 December)

What's In Your Organic Fruit & Veg Box? (18 & 20 December)

Let's welcome the new kid on the "Vegebox" – BioGro certified organic broad beans, freshly harvested from the lush farms of Wellington. Broad beans, also known as fava beans, are one of the oldest known cultivated plants, with a history of cultivation dating back at least 6000 years in the Mediterranean region. They were a diet staple in ancient Greece and Rome.

Did you know that broad beans are great for the soil? They are part of the legume family, which can fix nitrogen from the air into the soil. This natural process enriches the soil, reducing the need for chemical fertilisers.

We love them because they are a great source of protein, dietary fibre and carbohydrates, as well as vitamins A, B1, and B2. 

You can now add our BioGro certified organic cherries 2kg gift box to your Fruit & Veg box delivery when you log into your account. Hurry, these Central Otago cherries are in high demand and we only have a limited supply!
