Does anyone else find themselves thinking things like ‘when this is all over I’ll never take such and such for granted ever again’? 

Things like popping over to your friends house for a cup of tea, dropping by at a family members home for a catch up, being able to purchase every day items like stamps from the post office. 

How about the once underrated luxury of picking up your groceries from the supermarket? 

These days the process of visiting the local supermarket requires as much forward planning as a seaside holiday with quadruplets. When is the best time to go? Do I need to wear a mask? Who will watch the kids while I go? What items can be replaced by what? Should I buy these items even though I don’t necessarily need them just quite yet? 

HGFD Produce, a family business based in Ripon, take away these worries for you. There’s enough going on at the moment without adding ‘what the heck will we have for dinner?’ to your list of concerns. 

Our bountiful fruit and veg boxes offer so much potential to your meal times and make sure the kids (and grown ups!) are getting the nutrients they need during these trying times. Pasta dishes with hidden veggies in them, salads and fruit salads, soups, jacket potatoes. Peppers and mushrooms to enjoy on the barbecue during this warm weather and all the veg needed for your beloved roast dinners. We’ve loved receiving feedback and seeing what are customers have created in the kitchens!
The middle and larger boxes include eggs and milk that can be turned into quiches, omelettes and cakes and make sure you never have to go without your comforting cuppa. Once you have selected your veg box, add on extras like bread, cheese, meat from local butcher R&J’s and even wine and beer! Each week more produce is added to our boxes and we like to swap things around to offer variety and ensure everything is seasonal and as fresh as can be. A lot of our time is spent making friends with local suppliers and farmers in North Yorkshire so that we can live up to our promise of providing ethical ingredients. This is very important to us as we strive to support small businesses, local farms and family businesses such as ourselves. 

On Tuesdays and Fridays our friendly drivers deliver safely and responsibly, taking all precautions necessary, to homes in Harrogate, Ripon, York and surrounding areas. You might even recognise us... 

You see, the vegetable box delivery game is all new to us. Usually you will find us at family festivals like Deer Shed and Just So Festival serving up our famous rotisserie chicken and herby potatoes. When we’re not festivalling we cater for weddings, providing all sorts of tasty meals and morsels for Yorkshire’s (and beyond a few times) happy couples. As for many people, the outbreak of Covid-19 has had a devastating impact on our business. With festivals cancelled and weddings postponed indefinitely it was imperative for us to think outside of the box and come up with a new business plan in able to support not only ourselves but our dedicated staff and team members. A friend pointed out that deliveries were still allowed to go ahead and, along with the knowledge that our customers were taking this time at home to enjoy cooking and baking, our veg boxes were born!
As of Sunday 26th April, Margaux, our fondly named chicken rotisserie, will be coming out of her winter slumber and will be roasting up a storm. As her chickens rotate she creates the crispiest skin on the outside and the juiciest meat on the inside. These are served with fresh new potatoes that are cooked underneath the birds in their drippings and seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic, rosemary and thyme. These simple ingredients mean that the whole meal is gluten free, allergen free and full of goodness. We can’t wait for you to try this for yourselves, we’re positive your family will love it as much as ours do. Available on Sundays, please see the website for further details on pick up and delivery options.
