We’re a small team, its just the two of us. We set up Twisted Turnip in 2017 to help connect Derbyshire farmers with local people and support as many local businesses as possible.
We don’t believe in setting strict cosmetic standards for our vegetable boxes so you’ll often find ‘wonky’ vegetable in our boxes. We love vegetable of all shapes and sizes!
Clare and Ian
We like to keep things simple.
Our vegetable boxes contain seasonal produce grown within 15 miles of Derby. We keep packaging to a minimum and only use plastic if absolutely necessary.
Our boxes can be collected from 5 different location across Derby and we also offer delivery.
We know you’ll love our veg boxes as much as we do!
If all of the UK’s edible food waste was eaten, the environmental benefit would be the equivalent of taking one in four cars of the road. Wow!
