Very good, but you do pay for the quality. A deal like this is well worth taking advantage of though, although currently the code doesn't seem to be working - I've emailed them to find out why.

Great Idea And Very Good Deal. Unfortunately They Don't Deliver To My Area Just Yet :?

Win win either way really. Might try this company now!

I'd say reasonable rather than very good. We've been doing this deal for three weeks now (it was posted here ... hotukdeals.com/ite…u-/), and the courgettes and carrots are always overgrown. And whilst the food is organic, some of it has very large food miles. Once we have the £50 and used it, we will be going back to our local farmers market where the food we buy is grown locally and grown organically (but not organic certified). They are also significantly more expensive than local markets for organic food.

Don't forget it's £50 credit on your account .I thought it was a £50 refund at first.I guess its a good deal if you normally buy organic but they seem expensive to me.

Nice. Ordered!

Yeah, so if you get exactly £15 on each delivery you're effectively getting £110 worth of food for £60, not £50 worth of food for £10!

BTW, the reason it didn't work for me is it's new customers only, I assumed the "first order" text referred to the first of the 4 orders, not your first order ever. Still, good deal for new customers!

It is food that they would charge you £110 for, not £110 worth of food. There is a difference. For example, their bananas are £2.25 per kilo - even M&S organic bananas are less than a quid a kilo.

Really?

But at least you know where it comes from, and it's never air-freighted. Your farmers' market has smaller food miles but it also doesn't offer the selection Abel and Cole offers, so it's a bit unfair to blame them for that.

NOT SUCH A GREAT DEAL UNLESS YOU BUY ORGANIC/FREERANGE NORMALLY

This is basically gives you their products at more or less half price - ie for £110 worth of stuff, you pay £60

ONLY good if you want the free range organic stuff. Otherwise you can buy the normal versions of this in a supermarket for 1/2 the price anyway. Their products are typically twice the price because they are organic etc

True, but what better way to try it and see if it's worth the extra - with the bonus of it all being delivered to your door.

thanks op just ordered, heat added.

Yes, 89p a kilo.

My local farmers market actually has a larger range than Abel and Cole. There are always at least 25 stalls there.

I'd wager that 89p a kilo is either a special offer or a loss leader.

Your local farmers' market won't have the stuff that Abel and Cole has that can't be grown in the UK. Besides which, it's not comparable as it's not organic. Why would it not be certified organic if it were grown organically? That's going to all the expense without reaping the benefits.

That's odd, we've ordered from them several times in the past, but we've just gone through this offer and got the £50 credit, no problem.

Perhaps it only stops those who order on a weekly basis.

they may have changed it now, I did point out that it was unclear. Their email to me said: "the reason [it did not work] is that our system did not recognise you as a new customer (owing to the delivery you received on the 7th of July)", but they gave me the offer anyway! :thumbsup:

Does anyone know how this compares to Riverford (which is fantastic)?

does this have to be four orders of their boxes or any order with customized shopping items exceeding 15....I have placed an order but am now in doubt as I did not select one of their boxes

I don't use Riverford so I can't compare, but I can confirm that A&C's customer service is extremely good, and they will refund without question if you complain about something. However, what has annoyed me recently is that they've added a 99p delivery charge without informing their customers first, and that they sell bottled water, which any company professing to be green should never do.

Email or call and ask them - they're very responsive and you're guaranteed an accurate answer rather than asking on here.

this puts me off as they might only have 5 £50 credits which you wont find out until you have stumped up £60 minimum

ordered before anyway so no good to me

You can specify anything as a "don't like" and they won't supply it. But with veg boxes you're expected to be in the organic spirit and have some flexibility, to reduce the waste that occurs when food is forced out of season.

I still got 2 items from my dont like list

hardly reduced food waste when they ended up in the bin

I didnt even know what one of the items was as they dont send a list of what you are receiving :?

Well that's a shame. Did you have a very long list, did you add things to it after the order deadline, or did they mess up?

Of course not - and it wouldn't have happened had there not been a failure in the system somewhere.

They do - it's on the "newsletter" you get with each order, as well as on the website. And with the more obscure stuff they tend to provide an explanation on the newsletter; if not, the website should have instructions and recipes galore.
