Pick & Mix your Veg!

As we’re now in the winter months the selection of veg can be a little limited, to avoid too much repetition we’ve decided to introduce a pick and mix veg bag scheme instead of the standard veg bag. You will now be able to order 9 different items from us each week buying according to weight:

  • Potatoes
  • Carrots
  • Leeks
  • Onions
  • Red cabbage
  • Savoy cabbage
  • Parsnips
  • Swede
  • Beetroot

Sourced predominately from Cuttlefords Veg Farm near Congleton or, if they don’t grow it elsewhere in the UK. Cuttlefords vegetables are incredibly fresh, having often been in the ground until a day or two before you receive your order.

Please help us support Cheshire vegetables and buy as much of your weekly veg from us – if you continue to spend a minimum of £5 on veg each week, it should work fine. If it proves very popular, we should be able to bring our prices down, but even as they are, we are very competitive with local supermarkets and can beat them on freshness every time!

Food4MaccDirect go Wassailing in Swanscoe

At the end of January we were able to join in at the ‘Random Apple Company’s Wassailing’ Event in Swanscoe. We currently supply some of their delicious seasonal Elderflower Cordial and Preserves.

They produce their own Random Apple Juice from their orchards and welcome donations of local apples in return for bottles of pasteurised juice.

The event included Morris Dancers, bonfire, singing and ‘blessing’ the apple orchard for next season’s  yield. We hung bread on the branches and ended the evening with a fantastic shared buffet and hot mulled ‘Random’ apple juice. The pheasant and chestnut casserole was superb.

Dressing up was optional but as you can see a great effort was made by some to enjoy the theme!
Despite the rain we all had a great time. Many thanks to Sarah for the invite.
