Veg Box Fresh is a team of like-minded people based in Saltash, Cornwall, committed supporting local growers across Devon and Cornwall, delivering free to your door across the greater Plymouth area.
Our concept is simple: Pick what fresh fruit and veg you want on our easy-to-use website and we'll deliver it for free.
You can pick one of our pre-prepared boxes or make up your own box. Or do a mixture of the two it's up to you.
We source our fruit and veg as sustainably as possible - through our network of farming families in Devon and Cornwall whenever we can.
The fruit and veg on this website might change from time to time because we always try to stock what's in season.
Not everything is in season all of the time, but we do our best to make sure we always stock our most popular items. That will mean that we have to use non-local suppliers from time to time - especially for the more exotic fruit and veg. But we'll always use local suppliers where possible.
We also deliver meat from our two family butchers (one in Devon, one in Cornwall), fish from Looe harbour caught fresh daily, bread cakes and pasties from our bakery in Torpoint, plus a whole range of preserves, jams and more from our network of producers in the South West.
We will do our utmost to hardly ever deliver anything that comes wrapped in plastic.
Feedback from our customers has always been that plastic seems so unnecessary in food packaging. We agree.
Mostly we use brown paper bags to keep all your produce together in your box. And we try to reuse these wherever possible.
The key to cutting back on waste for us is to buy in bulk. We're part of a company which supplies many schools and businesses with fruit and veg. So we try to buy in bulk from local farmers to cut down on the amount of packaging.
Your box might not always be the same. It probably won't be branded.
We realise that might not seem like great marketing but it's about reusing the packaging that comes into us, so we cut down on waste and pass on the savings to our customers.

Who we are
We're part of a company called Tamar Fresh, who are a family business with more than 30 years of experience of working with local growers.
They have deep long-held relationships with growers across the South West, and know a thing or two about sourcing sustainably grown, healthy and local food.
Our network of farming families help us deliver the best possible fruit and veg at the best possible prices in the most sustainable way possible.
We believe that as a nation we need to get back to eating as much of our food from local sources as possible.
That means fewer food miles and money going back into the local economy.
It means supporting local farms, with a more sustainable approach to sourcing food.
Nothing is ever too much trouble. If you want to ask if we can deliver a certain item or what something not on our product list, just ask.
