The first tip to eating fresh organic produce is eating what’s in season. In September, summer is coming to an end and autumn produce is abundant; from apples and apricots to swiss chard and wild mushrooms, there is plenty to stock the cupboard with!
Preserve and pickle in-season fruit and vegetables to use out of season. For example, preserve apples and freeze blackberries now for use in wintry fruit pies and crumbles.
Staples like organic pasta, canned tomatoes, beans and other dried goods can often be found for the same price as non-organic items. Buy them in bulk to save money per kg.
There are plenty of organic box schemes that cut the cost and time of sourcing fresh, local and seasonal produce and deliver it right to your door. There are many options that can include meat, dairy and eggs as well as fruit and vegetables, so you can choose the scheme to suit your diet. Boxes produced from a local farm or project are often cheaper than one of the big nationwide box schemes.
