Between June and November we deliver our vegetable boxes every Wednesday to addresses around Steinfurth and in Frankfurt. Furthermore, it is possible to pick up boxes at our site (Wednesdays, 11 am – 1 pm & 5 pm – 6 pm).
In the main harvest season (around July to November) we deliver every week, otherwise every two weeks. Vegetable boxes are available in the main harvest time, otherwise we only accept individual orders. We don’t offer anything between the beginning of March and the end of May (apart from vegetables from our storage upon request). A vegetable box means that we combine mixtures from the vegetables that can currently be harvested at face values of 5 € (small box), 10 € (regular box), 15 € (big box) or 20 € (huge box). You can find some examples for content quantities below.
Every customer who wants to have our leafy vegetables delivered in cloth bags can acquire two cloth bags worth € 2 per bag, which will be used for each delivery.
As we are a non-profit organisation with the goal of producing natural food, we do not sell anything, but ask for an appropriate donation to support our work and cover our expenses. If you are in our mailing list, you will receive the offer for the next week every week and you can deselect or specify preferences and products. Individual orders are always possible. Please let us know by Sunday evening or Monday morning know so we can prepare the order on time.
