We got a vegetable bag from Tolhurst organic for over 2 years when livign in Oxfordshire. They are a vegetable box scheme that is very good value (often it would work out cheaper than non-organic supermarket vegetables). They also had a very strong set of ethical and environmental principles. The down side of this for the conventional consumer such as myself is taht they don't deliver to your door, instead delivering to your neighbourhood rep. We used to have a 10m bike ride each way to pick it up. NOo too much of a problem as long as you weren't busy on the specific day and you lived close by. For a working couple though it could be a pain - a lot of our fellow collectors where we lived in were retired. However the only reason we stopped using them was due to moving and not getting a response when we left messages asking where our nearest rep was in central Reading. Therefore I would recommend them for thos ewho have a bit more time and want a less expensive veg box scheme
