Brigida’s family farm is located in a small plateau in Queijas, Portugal, near the Mediterranean and Atlantic seas. Surrounded by forests, Brigida’s organic butternut squash and sweet potatoes grow in harmony with nature and wildlife. Brigida will fill her 12kg box with whatever is in season – currently her delicious organic butternut squashes. Due to their very long shelf life, this box will keep you satisfied for the next few months!
Storage and shelf life
Since our butternut squash is harvested fresh, when stored between 10°C – 13°C with good ventilation, they can last up to 2-3 months.
Pumpkins are very versatile vegetables – great for both savoury and sweet uses. Use pumpkin in soups and curries, as buttery pumpkin mash, roasted pumpkin in salads, and caramelised in cakes and jams. A good opportunity to be creative!
Order before Thursday 12.00 to be guaranteed to receive Saturday’s fresh harvest on the following Tuesday or Wednesday. Deliveries are once weekly.
