Harvest Offerings, 22nd – 25th September 2014

salad greens1Hello,

Please check out our harvest offerings on Monday, 22nd to 25th September which you can pre-order starting today until Friday, cut off is 5 pm.

We are also offering subscription for September through December harvest.

Subscription Scheme

We do accept subscription gifts for your friends and family with our Cornucopia Scheme.  This is a free choice scheme where you determine from the outset the price and the items you would want in your weekly sustainable basket, and we will fill it out with your preferences e.g. all greens and veg or an assortment of veg and meat, plus probiotic, or rice or other items.  The choice is yours.

What is a subscription scheme?
Organic consumers become organic subscribers if you buy in advance either in one lump sum or in installment your food basket for 4 weeks or 8 weeks (if we didn’t hear from you, we roll it going forward) or at the beginning of the growing season.

In return for your subscription fee, subscribers receive an assortment of organic produce at discounted price which you have specified ahead of time, including frequency and number of periods.

If you would like to know what it is to subscribe, why and how, please call us at 0927 675 5199 or at villagegreenshop@btinternet.com.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Sustainably yours,

TheVillageGreenShop Team

Why brown rice is excellent for your body?

Rice is whole grain that is powerhouse of selenium, manganese, naturally occurring oils, and promotes weight loss. It  is also great antioxidant; contains very high in fibre, and is a slow-release sugar. On the other hand, white rice offers risk in contracting diabetes as it increases blood sugar rapidly. It also has very low dietary fibre but high carbohydrates and calories. Medical experts at the Harvard School of Public Health recently found that eating five servings per week of white rice increased the risk of diabetes. 

There is a global call for brown rice because development aid agencies saw the nutritional deficiency of white rice consumption in poorer or developing countries which creates further risks and challenges in economic development if its population is at risk of diabetes.
