Our vegetables are organically grown and sourced first from our own fields, then from other Devon and Cornwall growers and if the local option is unavailable, from other UK organic growers. We supply boxes in three different sizes:
Elmar’s Mini Taste Veg Box @ £5.50 - suitable for 1 person
Elmar’s Variety Veg Box @ £8.00 - suitable for 2 persons
Elmar’s Family Veg Box @ £10.50 - that little bit more, suitable for families
A typical £8 box will contain potatoes, onions and carrots and a variety of four other seasonal vegetables such as sprouting broccoli, spring greens, beetroot and leeks.

We deliver our boxes weekly to three locations - see our Delivery Options page for more information.
How do I place an order?
Once you have chosen the size of box you want and where you will be picking it up from, you can place your order online and we will pack and deliver the box to your chosen pick up point next Wednesday afternoon. Our boxes are designed to be reused several times so please keep the boxes and return these to us at your next collection from the drop off point so that we may continue to keep our prices low for you.
Your order will be repeated the following week unless you wish to do otherwise, (see, "What happens if I don't need a box every week").
How do I pay?
At Elmar Vegetables, we try to minimise bank transaction charges to ensure that every penny of your money will go towards something you can eat and enjoy! If you are collecting your box from one of our pick-up points then there are containers available for you to leave either cash or cheques, (made payable to Mark Seamer or Ella Peacock) for us to pick up as we deliver. If you would prefer to pay us straight into our bank, then the details for a BACS payment are available when you place your order if you select that option. We do not charge VAT.
What do I do if there are vegetables I don't like?
If there are certain vegetables you know you will never want, just let us know and we can keep them out of your boxes.
If you have a lot of vegetables that you don't like, or you wish to have some control over what goes in your box, contact us and we should be able to provide a box tailored around what you want.
What happens if I don't need a box every week?
If a box every week seems too much, don't worry, we have customers who have fortnightly boxes or even boxes every three weeks. If you think there might be some weeks you do need a box, and some when you don't, again, no problem, all we ask is that if you are not having a box for any reason you let us know by 5pm on the Friday before your next delivery. (This is so we have accurate numbers for our ordering).
