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

Egg breakfast helps reduce ghrelin, a hormone that contributes to hunger, it also lowers blood sugar and insulin levels.

Did you know that 2 raw egg yolks contain nearly twice as many antioxidant properties as an apple?

Not only that eggs contain high quality proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals, egg yolks are rich in lutein and zeaxanthin, a class of carotenoids that offer powerful prevention against age-related macular degeneration; the most common cause of blindness.

Product value

Dear Friends,

I am sorry if you get disappointed over undelivered orders or (wrong) replacements for your orders.  Our desired outcome is to deliver the produce on the day you expect to eat them.   Please bear with us as we find ways to ensure that we have items that you need and ensure you are happy and delighted about what you buy from us.

AppetiteforOrganic

Can I take you through our small operations so you get an understanding of how things work?

  • We do not source our produce from a food conglomerate with sophisticated conveyor belt operations that churn out huge quantities of items for supermarket aisles week after week.  At TheVillageGreenShop, the growing and raising of veg and livestock are not manipulated but rather we leave them to nature to take its course. Compare our items with conventionally grown produce-  our organic brown mountain rice for example is produced and harvested 2x a year only. Free range chickens take about 3 months or more while the broilers in the supermarket can get to your table in 45 days! And cows nowadays won’t see a blade of grass in 6 or 11 months let alone (GMO) corn or soybean feed!  Food corporations inject chemicals to be able to milk gallons and gallons of milk off cows laden with hormones and antibiotics plus added sugar, etc. and sell to you cheap that makes this generation obese! Indeed, time has intrinsic value: MONEY. For that reason I founded TheVillageGreenShop because I want to eat real living foods and share them with you. The soul-satisfying flavour you get from each of the items you buy from us is gift of Mother Nature for respecting the natural growth processes of vegetables, fruits and animals.
  • We design our business model around social ethos such as:
    • Integrity of food as our priority –we only sell produce that contains zero pesticides, zero fungicides, zero GMO/soybeans in feeds, zero hormones and zero antibiotics. We are resolute in the hope that by underpinning our enterprise based on honesty we are able to sustain our operations.
    • We only bring local and seasonal organic produce to your table sourced from real farmers i.e. small holder local family farmers with no direct link to market and their route to get their items to your table is through TheVillageGreenShop.  We support especially women dairy, vegetable and poultry farmers whose family’s sustainability depends on the market we help create for them.
    • We are low carbon social business and advocate for farm to table produce hence we don’t keep inventories.  We don’t want you to buy a product with transport expense as a major cost of the product!   So we bundle them up with other items from the origin of the produce to get to your area, and encourage you to buy collaboratively and subscribe.
    • TheVillageGreenShop ensures that our network of farmers share in the wealth they create by paying them a moral price i.e. we pay cash and we don’t pay cheap or haggle for a bargain instead we add more to it by helping build human capability resources and supporting their training on organic farming, food sustainability and caring for the earth in order for them to continue growing those crisp lettuces, juicy plump tomatoes, and give us those veggie-deliciousness and meat freshness and diversity in our food choices.

Although we have an inventory list of extensive meat cuts, bottle products, assortment of salad greens and veggies but please expect that it may be available or not so we should be open for wider options.

Many thanks for for supporting local and seasonal products!

Cheers to your health,
