NOTICE CONCERNING PAYMENTS
This notice affects customers who pay weekly by cheque.
It is becoming increasingly expensive for us to pay in
cheques, due to Bank charges.
Would customers who currently pay by cheque on a weekly basis,
please consider paying on a four weekly or monthly cycle. This
does not necessarily have to be in advance, as payment in arrears
would be considered.
Reminders can be issued if required.
We hope you will consider this option, and thank you in
Anne Sandwith & Jeremy Clegg.
I am Anne Sandwith and I started growing on our present vinery
site in Baubigny over twelve years ago, and soon obtained the Soil Association
organic symbol. Five years ago Jeremy Clegg joined the business.
We now grow over 40 different varieties of vegetables in our
greenhouses and surrounding land. For the past seven years the box scheme has been our main marketing
If you would like to see a little of the vinery, take a look
at our new Gallery.
I hope you find this website useful. It explains why organic
food is important, how our home delivery system works to provide
premium produce at reasonable prices, and how you can join the
scheme yourself. If you have any questions or comments, feel free
to e-mail me.
Please do NOT use e-mail for last minute changes to your order
or cancellations, as I cannot guarantee to always pick up
your e-mail in time. ALWAYS use either telephone or FAX
for these changes, thanks.
Organic Produce - Healthier for you and Better for the
Food quality, nutrition and human health are inextricably
linked, and we are clearly experiencing an escalation of
food-related problems. Almost every day there are food scare
stories raised somewhere in the media. More and more, connections
are being suggested between intensive agriculture and the sources
of these problems. There is increasing recognition that organic
methods can supply safe, healthy and nutritious food that tastes
Recent research shows that pesticide residues sometimes as
high as six times the recommended safety level can be found in
intensively farmed food. Organic regulations restrict the use of
artificial pesticides and fertilisers and precise records must be
kept on all aspects of our operation. Herbicides are prohibited and
genetically modified crops and processes are banned by the Soil
Association. We aim to grow in a manner which is as environmentally
sustainable as possible and to produce healthy, tasty, chemical-free
Recent studies by the British Heart Foundation has shown that
eating 5 portions of vegetable and fruit a day could save between
20% and 30% of the lives lost through heart disease. Of course
organic produce is even better for you as it hasn't been treated
with any noxious chemicals and some studies suggest it contains
more vitamins and trace elements than conventionally grown
Organic farming and growing aims to employ sustainable methods
which benefit the environment, animal welfare and wildlife. We
seek to work in harmony with nature and encourage
