How can I pay?
Cash, cheque payable to Daniel Ross, standing order or bank transfer are all accepted forms of payment.

Can I get an occasional box or does it have to be a regular delivery?
You can have a box as often or infrequently as you like, but please give 2 days notice (by Tuesday) so we can plan how much to harvest each week.

Delivery is every Thursday to the south Black Isle – Rosemarkie – Avoch – Munlochy – Kessock – Killen areas.
Delivery is every 2nd Thursday to the north Black Isle – Culbokie – Jemimaville – Cromarty
Customers west of the A9 except Kessock need to collect at the croft or Ryefield Farm shop, Tore on Thursday or Friday.

Do I have to be home to get a delivery?
No, your box can be left on the doorstep or in a shed etc.

What size of box will suit me?
A regular box contains enough for 1 or 2 people or a small family. A large box will suit 2 people or a family, but it really depends on how many vegetables you eat!

What sort of vegetables will be in the box?
