never heard of them but i would tend not to buy food online. just looking at the site looks very basic for a company who seems to do most of it business online. they say they get produce from local farmers id ask them for their names and try to contact them yourself (not by a number they give) but im just an old skeptic. also couldnt get a lot of  other pages on the site to work.

Never heard of them, but have just clicked on the link and what can I say - the site is s***e!
The grammar is appalling, there are few products offered for sale, it's uninteresting and the recipes page does not even work.
I wouldn't buy from them, but then again, why would I given that I live in North Devon. We actually have a similar scheme here - called LocalFarmBox - haven't even had a look at their website yet, but have tried to contact them with a view to being added as a supplier. However, when I found out, through trying to contact them, that there is nobody to answer the telephone after 2p.m. I decided that they couldn't possibly be serious. I have people phoning me up to and sometimes beyond 9p.m. to order meat, and I would never not answer the phone!! Don't know if your guys are the same or not!

Not really the same thing, but an online buy your pig and we will rear and butcher it for you, have been very disappointed.  Apparently the owner is now in France.  So take great care when ordering.

There's no excuse for a site this bad!  I built my own with minimal knowledge and a Website builder thingy.  Spell check would help them too.  If you want to be taken seriously, you need to look professional.

too much that doesn't work on this site (about us) and no indication of weight inside the boxes. We should tell them...
I hope I got your area right, SB. Interesting cruising the eco pages of other counties...box scheme on there

I would just go to the farmers' market and ask there if they deliver. :&>
