A new future for Vital Veg - news 9th November 2020

A new future for Vital Veg
For the benefit of our fortnightly, occasional, and new customers, here is a repeat of last week’s news:

16 years on from “the beginning” Vital Veg has grown into a beautiful, thriving business. It has grown from a dream, via a tiny business powered by determination, a hoe and an old Subaru car (which did everything from deliveries to doubling as a tractor) into an effective, awarding-winning and much-loved enterprise.

It is now time for us to retire, and hand over the future of Vital Veg to the next custodian(s).

Could that be you – or someone you know?

It is very important to us that the service to our customers is not interrupted during our hand-over, and that service only gets better. So, dear customers, please be assured that changes here will not affect your deliveries.

If you are interested in becoming a custodian of Vital Veg then please read on.
We are looking to hand over Vital Veg to a new owner(s) who has a love of organic veg, good soil, nature, and who will cherish this business.

We can offer support and advice in a staged hand-over, if required. You do not necessarily need to be a veg grower to take on this business.

Vital Veg could continue as a private venture, or it could become a social enterprise depending on the goals of the new owner(s).

A beautiful housing plot with full planning permission and building warrant adjacent to the current vegetable production area can be included by separate negotiation if desired. Water and power are on site.

The land currently used by this business for organic vegetable production, plus the pack house, tractor shed, stores, office, staffroom and yard will be available on a lease to be negotiated.

This week’s potatoes are Setanta. These are a nice pink-skinned potato. Good for good for baking, boiling, roasting, and chipping.
