We set up Twisted Turnip to help farmers find a home for produce that doesn’t meet the strict standards set by UK supermarkets. We’ve both witnessed first-hand the shocking levels of produce that is rejected and we wanted to take action!
So here we are, connecting local people with local producers, bringing top quality vegetables of all shapes and sizes to the market and ensuring our prices are fair for both the farmer and our customers.
Clare and Ian
We like to keep things simple. Our vegetable boxes contain seasonal produce grown in Derbyshire that hasn’t been sorted through to meet unnecessarily high cosmetic standards. We keep packaging to a minimum and you won’t find individual packaged vegetables in our boxes!
We offer a number of different box sizes and prices start at £4.50.
We’re incredibly passionate about our products and we know that you’ll enjoy them as much as we do.
Up to 40% of fruit and vegetables grown in the UK may never make it to plates because they are ‘ugly’!
Select your box/boxes, check out and enter your details. Then choose delivery or a collection point (Order by 24:00 on Monday ready for delivery on Thursday or collection on Thursday or Friday).
1. Deliver to your chosen address on Thursday (from 19:00) OR 2. Collect your order on Thursday (The Wonky Table, PKF Cooper Parry) or Friday (Derby Uni).
