And they say milk farmers have it tough....
At prices like this does the farmer make a profit for the produce? What about the workers how much do they get for picking and packing the veg?
do you have a different website to me ? mine showing 38p brocolli , 74p parsnips etc

If you want to pay 5 times the price for a carrot, you might be on the wrong site.

This will be a loss leader to get customers in. Farmers and workers should have already been paid usually due to a contract. Farmers and workers won't be expected to get about a third of the wage because a supermarket has an offer on.

Farmers ship in migrants to harvest crops. I guess this is reducing their costs

Completely agree this will be a loss leader, they'll make a slight loss on this and make it up by hopefully selling more meat, as these vegetables combined will make many think; Sunday roast or Easter meals.
Great prices, will have to go pick up a few packs of parsnips and carrots for some honey roasted stuff, or perhaps some carrot and parsnip mash

If it wasn't for the likes of Lidl and Aldi, Asda would still be charging whatever they want
ASDA just get greedy if u go to a different ASDA some things are cheaper it depends where you live and I mean cheaper all the time
Is it just on the website or if you go to ASDA is it the same price 29p

​Totally disagree. Yes it is a loss leader but it's the producer who pays for the loss. The only thing the supermarket buyers do is "threaten" the supplier of they don't 'sponsor' the loss.

Who cares? it's cheap veg!, if petrol dropped to 10p a litre would we care about the refineries being paid enough?

They still have to pay them the minimum wage, pretty much the same as most shop workers get.

Very good prices.

That's a weak argument as oil companies make millions/billions a year and petrol could probably drop 40p a litre and still be profitable. It's well publicised that farmers are struggling to make a decent living and I personally think it's right the food should be priced accordingly in supermarkets to ensure farmers can carry on providing us food.

There is an argument to be had though that cheap food is good for poor familes, and I can see that argument. Personally if milk is £1.50 instead of £1, or broccoli is 80p instead of 29p then I am happy and able to pay it without really noticing the hit in my wallet. Morrisons actually sell a "milk for farmers" which I believe is 14p more expensive (14p goes to the farmers), as there was support from customers for it.

Another option for those that are conscious of farmers being undercut (and organic/quality), is to source veg boxes from local farms. A local farm to me delivers organic fruit and veg (whatever is in season) to the house from as little as £17 (for about 4/5 types of fruit and 6/7 types of veg), so it is worth exploring non supermarket options if you can afford to.
Thank you for posting this excellent deal.
wouldn't trust these idiots to deliver your shopping, a week later, no shopping and no explanation or contact from them,told by customer services it's "on it's way"!

You can't compare dairy farmers to vegetable growers. Dairy is hands on 365 days a year. Large scale vegetable growers are closer to open air factories using contractors for sowing, spraying and harvesting. You'd be hard pressed to find a "farmer" anywhere near one of these places.

Hands on or not is irrelevant, if the prices are leading to the farmers/"open air factories" being unprofitable, it will ultimately lead to them going out of business and in worst case scenario, a shortage of food/increased prices (admittedly would take a lot for this to happen, but the premise is there). On a personal level, for those farmers, it means losing their livelihood, and for the "contractors" who are sowing/spraying/harvesting on larger farms it means lower wages or loss of work. It's simple economics.
These are all 28p at Morrison's

Yes that's the normal price, where as Asda is probably £1 regular price
Did this just start today? I was in yesterday and saw no such offers! The small potatoes were 89p!
