Picked up my first veg box from Puffin Croft last night and I am really impressed! I had 14 - yes 14 - different types of veg, all home grown and freshly picked. There were two types of potatoes, cabbage, kale, swede, turnip, carrots, red onions, spring onions, courgette, cucumber, tomatoes, cauliflower, lettuce and broad beans. All for ten pounds!!

I did a rough 'Tesco price comparison' and came to well over that amount, and thats not taking into account the value of it being home-grown, fresh and minimal on the food miles.

They can deliver if necessary, and also do fresh bread, eggs and preserves/chutney etc.

Delighted - will definately buy regularly from them - thank you for first class produce and a first class service

I have to agree with all the above posts.I have had the veg boxes which are worth every penny and of course the added bonus of it being all fresh. Ive also had plums which were to die for the best plums ive had in years ,the breads,rolls again delicious and all you need to go with the bread/rolls is there dumpsadeary jam which when spread on a lovely piece of there home made bread is so so yummy.Not only is all the food ive tried from puffincroft lovely Kris is lovely too 1st class customer service i will most certainly be buying from them every time. pingu

Thursday being delivery day to Thurso our veggie box and crusty bread arrived mid-day.

Huge amount of goodies and have already dealt with the apples, beetroot, courgettes and the baby carrots from the huge bunch. At first sight I thought there was far too much to use between two in a week, but with this weather and soups and stew back on the menu I could be very wrong. Maybe we will manage to eat extra veggies and better our health as well as the bank balance!

Hope to get a trip to the farm shop one day to see what other goodies there are to try.

Well I received my first veggie box and bread from Puffin Croft today and am absolutely delighted with it.

I had such a beautiful dinner tonight using their yummy beetroot, tatties, carrots,broccoli and cabbage.
The bread is absolutely delicious as well and even better toasted.

It is so good to get such lovely fresh veg each week and am looking forward to my regular order.

I had ordered from McLeod Organics before and Puffin Croft's is much better quality.

Good to deal with such lovely people as well.

Well done Kris and Gary!:D

Bought bread and baking from Puffin Croft today. Baking was very tasty and the bread can only be described as magnificent!!!! Veg looked excellent and will be sampling it tomorrow for Sunday lunch.

Just put in my order with Kris for delivery again tomorrow in Thurso. Wonder what treats we have in store this week?

All the left over bits have gone into a pan of soup.........no proper name comes to mind, so I call it "Dana soup" as it is full of "all kinds of everything". Blitzed even children who hate veggies scoff it and want more.

Yes they certainly do Chaz.

They are really good to me as I can't eat some stuff due to having Crohns Disease and they make up a box accordingly which I wouldn't get anywhere else.

So glad to have found them!:D

I continue to be delighted with every veg box I receive and so good to know I'm eating produce with loads of vitamins and minerals unlike the stuff lying on supermarket shelves.

The bread is absolutely delicious! You should try the rolls as they are heavenly!:D

I recieved my first box today, and hubby and I just couldnt wait til tea time to try it, so we had our main meal at lunch time! It was gorgeous! The taste was so superior to anything I have ever tasted before!

We will be trying the eggs for supper later!

Kris was so friendly at the door, and such a lovely lady! Thank you also for ensuring future deliveries will not include Celery as my little boy is allergic.

First class service and already looking forward to next weeks box!

Just got our first box of veg. Delighted with the variety, some of which will compliment the mutton (from another croft) casserole this evening. Also can't wait to get the delicious taste of duck eggs again.

They must have been delayed JWM as usually have my delivery by now as well.

Do you have anywhere safe they could leave it? If not, they could leave it at my house if you want and you could come and collect it? I live in Reiss.

Can anyone say if Puffin Croft is still a working concern? We have just moved into the Caithness area near Helmsdale. Any deliveries out this way if they still sell boxes? Thank you.
