Last Monday Slow Food Norwich finally managed to visit Peter Burgess at his home in Sisland near Norwich, Peter was one of our first members when we started the group in November 2010.
Peter set up his Kitchen Gardens organic box business over twelve years ago and has since then built a large and loyal following in Norwich and the surrounding area, with over 100 boxes sent out to customers each week.
What makes Kitchen Gardens very different from most vegetable box schemes is that Peter is a one man business who grows all the produce in the fields surrounding his home and then he also cuts, boxes up and delivers to the customers all in the same day.
Added to this that all his produce is truly organic and as fresh as it is possible to find, then you can see why his boxes are so popular with his customers.
Peter is a great supporter of Slow food and has been involved with several projects that Slow food Norwich have held in 2011.
