You should check your basket carefully before submitting your order. You should also ensure that the personal details (especially your email address and the delivery address) in your Account are correct. We accept no liability for any losses arising out of your failure to provide the correct details.
Acceptance of an Order
3.3. Once you have submitted your order, we will acknowledge it by email detailing the products you have ordered (“Confirmatory Email”). Acceptance of your order will take place when we receive payment from you, payment will be taken on the day the order is placed. The Confirmatory Email will include your order number and personal details and will include a link to these Terms and Conditions. Once payment has been received a legally binding contract ("Contract") will be formed.
Our products are subject to availability. We may limit the quantities of particular items supplied to any one customer at our sole discretion.
3.4. We will contact you if all or part of your order has not been accepted. This will usually be because:
(a) the item is unavailable;
we cannot authorise your payment;
(b) we are not allowed to sell certain items to you;
you are not allowed to buy the products from us (for example because the product requires you to be aged 18 years or over). Should you wish to purchase age restricted products you will be required to complete certain age verification checks to confirm you are aged 18 years or over (including confirming your date of birth andpayment card information.); or
(c) there has been a mistake on the pricing or description of the produce.
3.5. We only sell in England, Scotland and Wales. Our website is solely for the promotion of our products in England, Scotland and Wales. Unfortunately, we do not accept orders from or deliver to addresses outside England, Scotland and Wales.
Please note, you do have the right to cancel the Contract and we have set out how you can do that in Clause 10 (Cancellations) below.
4.1. We use a third party logistics company ("Courier") to deliver our products. You can see the delivery options which are available to you during the checkout process on our website. You will be asked to select your preferred delivery day when you check out. You cannot change this delivery day. If you need to contact the Courier for any reason about your delivery, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Delivery of produce will take place when our Courier delivers to the address specified by you during the checkout process. We reserve the right to restrict deliveries in certain areas, and this includes the right to eliminate certain areas from our delivery schedule altogether.
4.2. It is your responsibility to ensure that an appropriate person is available to take delivery at the delivery address during the delivery slot.:
If you are out the delivery driver will leave your order at the address specified by you when you placed the order. We are not responsible in any way for the consequences of the delivery being left unattended for a period of time, whether left in your nominated safe place or not. This includes but is not limited to theft, tampering, contamination or the deterioration of chilled produce.
4.3. If your order contains alcohol the recipient must be aged 18 or over. If our Courier is in any doubt about the age of the recipient on delivery they will require some form of identification. If the recipient is unable to produce appropriate identification unfortunately our Courier will be unable to leave the order at the address provided.
You are responsible for produce when delivery has taken place. In other words, the risk in produce passes to you when you take possession of the produce, or it is left in the safe place you have specified.
4.4. If you are not satisfied with an order you have received or if the order is incorrect, something is missing or produce arrives which is not fit for consumption, you must notify us as soon as possible.
If something happens which:
(a) is outside of our control (for example adverse weather conditions); and
affects the estimated time or date of delivery;
we will give you a revised estimated time or date for delivery of the products.
5.1. Our produce is seasonal, so it changes regularly so you can buy what is growing in our suppliers' fields and farms at that time of year. This means that not all produce will be available all year round. We may change the variety, number and type of produce available on the website regularly and without notice. Produce is likely to become unavailable out of season as towards the end of seasons.
Produce may vary slightly from their pictures. The images of the produce on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device's display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the produce. Your produce may vary slightly from those images.
5.2. Produce packaging may vary from that shown in images on our website.
Whilst we believe product information on our website to be accurate at the time of publication, on occasion manufacturers may alter their ingredient lists. Actual product packaging and materials may contain more and/or different information than that shown on our website. All information about the products on our website is provided for information purposes only. We recommend that you do not solely rely on the information presented on our website. Please always read the labels, warnings, and directions provided with the product before using or consuming a product. To the extent permitted by applicable law we accept no responsibility for, and make no representation or give any warranty or undertaking express or implied as to the accuracy or completeness of the information contained on our website.
5.3. All products that you order will remain our property until we have delivered the products to the delivery address stated in the order.

(a) is the price indicated on the order pages when you checkout;
is in pounds sterling (£)(GBP); and
(b) includes VAT at the applicable rate.
6.2. Aome costs, such as the delivery charge, are shown as a separate charge on the checkout page.
We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the item shown on the website is correct. However, it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the items we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the item's correct price at your order date is:
(a) less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount;
higher than our stated price at your order date, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order.
If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the Contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any products provided to you.
7.1. We accept all major credit and debit cards via Stripe. PayPal customers who would like to use PayPal payment method when placing an order can click on the “Checkout with PayPal” button when checking out. We do not accept cash.
We will do all that we reasonably can to ensure that all of the information you give us when paying for the products is secure by using an encrypted secure payment mechanism. However, in the absence of negligence on our part we will not be legally responsible to you for any loss that you may suffer if a third party gains unauthorised access to any information that you give us.
7.2. Payment will be taken on the day you place your order with us.
If your payment is not received by us and you have already received the products, you must pay for the products within 30 days and compensate us for all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by us in obtaining payment from you. We may at any time after a failed payment has occurred ask a debt collection agency to collect payment from you.
