Notts veg box delivery service launches

Published September 3, 2012

Parsnips and Pears, a new Nottinghamshire-based vegetable box company, has signed up over 200 customers in the last eight weeks, following a successful pilot scheme.

The business has since launched across the NG4-6 and NG8-16 postcode areas, and is set to expand its services further at the start of next year.

Parsnips and Pears sources its produce from local farmers and growers.

Sara Barlow is the force behind the new business: “This is honest to goodness, great quality, great tasting seasonal produce delivered directly to the door – and that common sense offer has really resonated with our customers.

“Why rely on supermarket produce that’s been half way around the world and back, when something can be picked from a nearby field and be on your fork soon afterwards?”

Parsnips and Pears vegetable boxes are available in different sizes, from small to medium, large to extra large and special occasion. Prices start at £7.99 including delivery.

Vegetable boxes can be ordered online through the website or by calling 0115 822 8622.
