2. Hello Fresh

From £10.35, riverford.co.uk
A family-run company with five farms around England delivering local veg to local folk, by a veg man/lady – not a courier – so they're happy to chat.

The big family boxes on offer here are the real draw. Salad boxes, too, are good quality, though not exotic – think lettuce, tomato and the like.
