Matt harvesting the eggplants for last weeks FeedBox. Such beautiful weather we’ve been having, it’s been lovely at the farm!

Dhal is one of the most versatile dishes to make. No matter what sort of lentil you use, it’s a healthy, budget friendly base for countless dishes. Lucky for us, it also goes incredibly well with an abundance of vegetables. The FeedBox this week is similar in content throughout May, as these vegetables really are at their peak deliciousness!
