I'm Anne Sandwith and my business is called Guernsey Organic Growers. I obtained the prestigious Soil Association organic symbol in 1991 and each year since then I've had to undergo a rigorous inspection to ensure that I meet the strict Soil Association 'standards'.

I am dedicated to producing high quality, locally grown organic produce and currently have a one acre greenhouse in the Castel for protected cropping and a slightly larger area in St Saviour's for outdoor crops.

On this website you can find recipes for many of the vegetables I grow, and the 'vegetable album' will help you identify the contents of your vegebox. Please check the News pages regularly for updates of vegetables in season, new organic conversions and other updates on the vegebox scheme.

How does the Box Scheme Work?

The idea of forming direct links between consumers and growers/farmers is now well established in Britain. It benefits both the customer and the producer. Customers receive fresh local organic produce on a regular basis, whilst the producer has a reliable market which isn't subject to the 'cosmetic' dictates of the supermarkets. By supplying direct to the customer, the producer eliminates the middle-man's mark-up and so can keep costs down. Our box scheme operates as follows:-

Customers receive a weekly box of seasonal vegetables delivered to their house or office and are kept informed of which vegetables to expect by way of an occasional newsletter. The boxes/bags are filled with as wide a selection of seasonal produce as possible. I aim to grow the vast majority of the produce myself, but where this isn't possible (such as field-scale vegetables), I import from the nearest organic producers in Jersey. Occasionally in times of scarcity, I buy in from an English organic wholesaler.

I don't price out each item individually; it's more a case of every customer receiving a share of the harvest. If I have a seasonal glut of one particular crop, I will distribute it between all the boxes and everyone benefits. This gives customers the opportunity to freeze any excess produce for the winter months, or maybe give some to their family or friends!

It's important to grasp this concept as I do not run an individual ordering service, although customers have the opportunity of opting out of any vegetables they really dislike, in which case I try to give a substitute or provide them with an additional quanity of another vegetable. Think of me as your 'gardener', going to your vegetable patch and harvesting whatever is ready!
