So what exactly is Biome Box?
Biome Box is an unconventional Veg Box.
We supply produce, sourced from growers who understand the need to work with nature, to create greater resilience in the soil, the produce and those who consume it.
Improving biodiversity is critical. The lack thereof being a threat to the UK’s long term food security. Which is why we are actively growing forest and forage gardens.

Our Key Message
Maximising biodiversity is key to supporting nature
The way we produce our foods can support nature or deplete it. We believe the best way to produce food, is to use systems that create maximal natural diversity.
Whenever the variety of life on Earth is increased, nature (including ourselves) thrives.
Maximal diversity within nature provides greater wellbeing for all life. Through diversity comes a greater capacity to maintain balance, buffering life from extremes and creating resilient and adaptable systems.
We all know that fibre is the most integral substance to the gut, it feeds the good bacteria who live there so they can do their job feeding our gut and even our brain! What you might not know is that there are different types of fibre and fermentable carbohydrates which feed different strains of bacteria in our gut. The primary factor in our gut health is not only the number of bacteria and yeasts but the diversity of different strains. Mybiomebox is a fantastic way to get out of a rut with the same old vegetable fibres and provide some diversity as variety is the spice of life!
Delicious and nutritious, I've enjoyed learning about some of the lesser known ingredients, their health benefits and where they come from. Thank you to all those involved in this labour of love.
My green magic medical kit! Well-travelled and brimming with distinctive goodies-I couldn't be happier with my purchase
I think I've only missed one box since the beginning and I can't recommend it highly enough! Every month feels like a Christmas present of delight and surprise, as I discover genuinely new flavours, sometimes from plants I've seen but didn't know, were edible.
If you're interested in the health that truly natural plants can bring or if you're a die-hard foodie looking to discover new tastes, you need this.
Lovely mix of food this month. Always a treat.
The most unique, delicious, holistic, healthy and educational veg box I've come across.
Saw Biome Box recommended via The Ethical Butcher and thought I’d give it a go. The foraged and unusual produce really appealed to my culinary side but then the environmental and health benefits were an added bonus and I’ve learnt so much from exploring the ingredients and recipes. Mine have all arrived in perfect condition and have been delicious. I look forward to seeing what they do next.
To live in greater harmony nature
We think that nature knows a thing or two and we need to learn how to better work with nature's ever evolving design.
What drives us?
A better way to produce food
Diverse varieties of small scale farms create a diverse, resilient and agile food system, that better models the way nature does things.
We want to see food being grown by people who take care of the land, for the generations to come and support increased biodiversity from the soil up.
We are supporting growers who grow food in a range of systems, ideally based around perennial or heritage varieties of plants. From forest gardens, and market gardens to wild meadows.
We want to lead the way, offering people the opportunity to support growers that are doing their best to live in greater harmony with nature, whilst also producing amazing food.
