About Us

Hampshire Veg Box started as Ooooby Hampshire back in 2020, rebranding recently to show we do exactly “what it says on the tin”. Our team has over 60 years combined  experience in growing veg, running veg box schemes, and working in sustainable local food industries.

All of our team at the moment live in or around Winchester, Fair Oak, Eastleigh and the surrounding areas meaning they are actively involved in local activities, campaigns and love local events.

We want the Hampshire Veg Box experience to be a friendly approachable one, so please do get in touch if you have any questions or just want to chat.

WHAT WE BELIEVE IN

Fresh

Did you know that the average age of an apple on a supermarket shelf is 12 months old?!!? We couldn’t quite believe this either but it is true… Plus studies show that most vegetables lose upwards of 55% of their nutrients within 5 days of them being picked or harvested.

We work hard with local producers and our wholesalers to bring your the freshest of fruit, veg and other produce so that it doesn’t lose its taste, nutrients and isn’t a year old!

Natural

We work with organic producers, sustainable growers and regenerative farmers to bring you the most naturally grown produce as we possibly can.

Farming in a way that gives back more than we take out of our natural environments is something that we extremely passionate about, and should be something we all look to support. For our children and grandchildren we need to be taking care of our soils, nature, wildlife and the resources we all need.

Local

Supporting local producers and eating local foods is at the core of our beliefs and helps us to achieve our first two pledges of fresh and natural produce.

It’s simple local food from the producers we work with doesn’t travel as far leading to less carbon emissions, leading to less time to your plate (more nutritious and tasty), and leading to less unnatural preservatives being needed.

Plus supporting local farmers, grower and producers means we can pay them a fair deal for their efforts.
