About Us

HELLO FROM BLUEBELL ORGANICS

BLUEBELL ORGANICS

We are a small family company based in North Yorkshire. We are in the old walled garden of Forcett Hall Estate near Richmond. We grow and sell organic fruit and vegetables and deliver in North Yorkshire and the Durham Dales. (Please check below in DELIVERIES for specific areas)

We also sell at Farmers' Markets in Barnard Castle (monthly) and Hexham (fortnightly); and have a monthly drop-off in the Eden Valley Cumbria .

We believe in sustainable growing and trading, and all of our vegetables and fruit are sourced as locally as possible, with the majority either grown here in the market garden or within Yorkshire. 

We use minimal packaging and reuse and recycle wherever possible. Our veg is packed in paper bags, re-used boxes or biodegrable carriers. 

Please explore our range of VEG BOXES AND BAGS. Home-made CHUTNEYS and and free-range EGGS from Piercebridge Organic farm are also available.

 *UPDATE RE FUEL PRICES AND SEASONAL ADJUSTMENTS*

We adjusted the amounts of potatoes onions and carrots in your veg bags during April and May to take account of the rise in delivery costs. Having decided on a modest price rise in July the amounts of veg in bags has returened to normal, although you will notice some substitutions as some of the basics go out of season briefly - for example sweet potatoes have been substituted for carrots in the last couple of weeks, and you may find bunched salad onions instead of large onions in the weeks ahead as we wait for the UK new season's  produce to become available. 

*****

APPLE JUICE THIS SUMMER

Our apple juice is finished until the late summer!

Due to the variations of the Spring weather in 2021 we had one of our smallest apple crops for some years and we have now used all the juice we made from last year’s harvest.

We expect that there will be no juice available between May and July but that by August we will be starting to make and deliver new juice from the 2022 crop.

Regular juice customers will have a note in their delivery -  there will be none to sell at markets at the moment.

Updates

Thank you to customers for your continuing support and for your appreciation - it is lovely to receive feedback like this;

...'wanted to say that I’m really pleased with the veggie bags, particularly the stir fry bag. It’s really easy and convenient and I’m enjoying using vegetables that I otherwise might not think to buy. I’m really glad I found you at the food festival.'

'a big thanks to you all for providing us with lovely nutritious and delicious produce over this dull winter, it really is much appreciated'

However we also do welcome your feedback on anything you are not happy with - sometimes, (with potatoes for example) a whole batch can be unsatisfactory but look fine on the outside, so we don't know if you don't tell us! We will always do our best to put things right and make sure we are delivering lovely fresh, wonky veg for you each week.
