So what exactly is Biome Box?
Biome Box offers plant based produce boxes to support small scale growers taking care of nature .
Our understanding of what is good for nature is informed by what supports greater diversity within the biome of the planet - that includes the microbiome within our human body and the soil beneath our feet.
Biome Box aims to support small scale growers and foragers, in order to help us create a future where we can produce healthy food, from healthy soil and restore biodiversity.
We seek out diverse types of growers, that use a range of techniques, including using perennial systems, like forest gardens, as well as no dig market gardens.
Each box contains plant based foods that will diversify your diet (better supporting your microbiome). The contents are designed to support the diet of 1-2 people for a week.
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.
What people say about Biome Box
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.

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?
Increasing small scale farms
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.
