About us: what makes us different?

We're the local vegetable people 

We're the only veg box delivery service who collects produce from lots of organic farms in the local area. We pack our veg boxes in Haslingfield just outside of Cambridge, and deliver them to homes in Cambridge and the villages and surrounding towns. 


We're the people who put you in control

We believe our members should be able to decide how much control they want over what goes in their veg box. Our unique Choice veg boxes allow you to select the contents of your veg box each week. No one else offers this completely bespoke service. 

If you'd prefer that we put together a great selection for you then we do that too. With our OriginalPLUS+ boxes we put together a lovely selection based around your dislikes. If you're happy to leave all the selection up to us then our Original boxes are great value and the most sustainable option: by leaving the selction up to us, we can provide a balanced box for you while ensuring we make the best use of the produce we have to hand each day. 

 

Let us tell you a little more about ourselves 

We're organic people 

We're organically certified, which means we have annual inspections to prove that all our fresh produce is organic. We also sell a range of groceries as well. Many of these aren't organic but produced by our local Food Hub partners. Products which aren't certified orgnanic are clearly labeled as such.

We're green people

Organic production is good for the environment  both for the wildlife in and around the fields in which the food is grown, and for the planet as a whole. 

By prioritising local produce, we keep food miles to a minimum. 

Our van fleet is going electric: the majority of our veg box delivery vans are now electric.

We save on packaging: we pack our veg in the empty boxes which some of our veg comes in – and we hope to re-use them as many times as we can, so please return them each week!

We're Living Wage people 

We're Living Wage accredited employers. We're committed to paying our staff at least the Living Wage. In fact, we were the first food business to achieve accreditation in East Anglia, making us the Living Wage Foundation's Living Wage Champion in 2015. 

We're helpful people

If you have any questions, or experience any problems with ordering, please do get in touch. You can ring us on 01223 873300. Your call will almost certainly be answered by one of the management team who'll be very keen to talk! If you prefer to email then you can use our contact page. We hope to answer your query as soon as we see it. 

We're people who love food

We really do like our veg: taste and quality matter to us. Have a look at our Facebook and Instagram pages to see the recipe ideas we've been cooking up. Find us @camorganic

Every two months, we publish our Courgette magazine, which is delivered free to our all our veg-box members. If you'd like to to see the current issue, you can see it online here:
