The short video below shows you step-by-step how to use the online ordering system. In the tutorial I show you how to make a weekly veg box order, including how to customise your box to exclude or substitute items, how to add extra items to your order as weekly or one-off orders, and how to pay for your items. 

It also shows you your Oakcroft Organics account screen and how you can manage your veg box orders and payments online 24 hours a day. 

If you have any queries about using the ordering system (or anything else veg box related) not answered in the email or information provided below then please email me at oakcroftorganics@gmail.com.

Select weekly, monthly or one-off boxes plus extras such as organic eggs and butter

Click the header above or here to place your order via our new online shop! You can choose to have a monthly, weekly or a one-off box as well as adding extras such as organic butter, eggs, potatoes, carrots, onions and salad leaves. You can choose to have these extras added as a one-off or a regular order.

You can also choose extras from my "exotics" list which are organic items which are not locally produced but which many of us have come to think of as essentials. They can be hard to source organically elsewhere and are not available from a UK source. These are items such as organic lemons, ginger and avocados. The exotic items will vary seasonally and from week to week so please check the extras list to see what is available.

 

Seasonal veg boxes with the option to choose your box contents or have a mystery box

The boxes are made up of seasonal veg which varies weekly throughout the season. The web ordering system (hosted by Bucky Box) allows you to exclude or substitute items from your box based on the list of seasonal products which I will update weekly. When you have placed your order for a large or small box if you don't want a mystery box then tick the "Customise my product" checkbox and you will be able to exclude and substitute items.

The system requires you to select an item to exclude before you can choose your substitutions. So if there isn't anything in particular you want to exclude from the list then just click a random item to exclude. This will then activate the substitutions box and you can choose your items that you'd like in your box for that week. You can also specify just one or two things you want and leave the rest up to the Veg Box Randomiser to choose for you. (That's me, by the way, there is no actual Veg Box Randomiser I'm afraid.)

 

Choose your collection point

You can either collect from the gardens here at Oakcroft after 2PM on a Monday, Friday or Saturday or from Malpas Farmers Market on the third Saturday of every month. (Please note there is no Malpas farmer's market in January. The first market of 2015 will be on Saturday 15 February.)

 

Simple, online ordering and payment

I hope you find the new online veg box ordering system simple and straightforward to use. If you have any queries or run into any problems then email me or send me a message through our facebook page and I'll help you out with placing your order.

 

Chester Food Assembly

If you're based in or around the Chester area, don't forget that you can buy my organic veggies and extras from the Chester Food Assembly at www.thefoodassembly.com for collection on a Monday night from Telford's Warehouse. There's loads of other delicious produce from other local producers so it's well worth checking out. Say #yestolocal!

 

A little bit about us...

At Oakcroft we've been growing organically since 1962. All our vegetables are grown from seed using permaculture design, stock-free organic techniques and no chemical inputs. We work with nature, not against it. 

In February 2013 Lisa Payne took over the running of the gardens and, under the mentorship of Mehr Fardjoonji, is reinvigorating this historic organic market garden. Our produce is available to buy at local markets and direct from the garden.
