How does it work?
Subscribe to a veggie or a fruit bag and receive a fresh and varied package every week.
WEP distributes veggie bags and fruit bags with fresh, seasonal, organic vegetables, and fruits from Tuinderij De Stroom, an organic farm situated in Hemmen.
The bags are delivered at our office on Tuesday morning and can be picked up during lunch breaks (12:30-13:45) on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday in room 239 in Forum building (Droevendaalsesteeg 2, Wageningen).
There are different types of veggie or fruit bags to subscribe, you can read all about them below.
Inside a veggie bag…
A veggie bag contains 5 different vegetables. The types of vegetables depend on the season. Some vegetables can also come from Ekoboerderij De Lingehof, also in Hemmen.
For each vegetable you will receive about 3 ounce of each per person. This will be different for one piece vegetables, such as lettuce.
Two persons’ veggie bags contain bigger lettuces, and a house bag will for example contain two lettuces.
Inside a fruit bag…
A fruit bag contains four to five different types of fruit. All the fruit will preferably come from the region, like apples, pear, plums, blackberries, strawberries, grapes, etc. During winter these will be supplemented with fruit from Europe like oranges, tangerines, kiwis or bananas.
The contents of a small bag will be quite enough for one person who regularly eats fruit (at least two pieces a day).
House bags contain twice as much fruit, enough for 2-3 people.
Inside a combi bag…
A combi bag is a combination of veggies and fruits.
It’s ideal for the people that want to have a nice mixture of both but in small amounts, perhaps people living in self-contained rooms or if you are not a regular veggie/fruit consumer.
It contains 3 kinds of veggies and 3 kinds of fruits for one person.
Select your veggie or fruit bag and subscribe...
