The Grow Wild service is designed to make your life easier - so we try to organise the most convenient way to get your order to you. We are quite happy to leave your box in a pre-arranged place!
The day you will receive your delivery is dependent on your postcode and will be allocated once we have your full address. Your delivery day will fall into one of the days as outlined below.
- We deliver to Linlithgow & South Queensferry on Tuesdays
- We deliver to the Central region and West Lothian on Wednesdays. The majority of our courier deliveries are delivered on Wednesdays.
- We deliver to Edinburgh on Thursdays.
Your deliveries will be made using either one of our own electric vehicles, or by APC, our trusty courier if you live further afield. If you are local to us in Linlithgow you might like to pop up to the farm store instead, to see the whole range.
Where we can leave a delivery if you are out:
When you register, please let us know of a convenient place where your order can be left by your driver. (please provide us with what.three.words. location). This may be round the back of your house, in the garden shed, behind the hedge, or wherever you tell us! If your order is going to be open to the elements, often the driver will stick a black bag over your order.
NB TOWN DWELLERS in our own delivery areas….If you live in a tenement, which many of our Edinburgh customers do, then providing us with a main stair key enables the driver to get into your block and leave your order directly outside your flat door. This has become common practice over the years, and the guys tend to jangle with keys as they make their deliveries.
We can accommodate changes to your order every week - provided that you let us know by your deadline day as follows:
- Deliveries on Tuesdays - deadline is Saturday 9am.
- Deliveries on Wednesdays - deadline is Sunday 9am.
- Deliveries on Thursdays - deadline is Monday 9am.
If you have a regular delivery and don't let us know by your deadline then your standard order will arrive, and that's what we'll charge you for. We will donate your order to our local charity (West Lothian FoodBank).
There is a small delivery charge dependent upon your area (we have divided our delivery area into Zones). For example:
South Queensferry £2
Edinburgh West £3
Everywhere else is £9.95
It is important that you give us clear instructions where to leave your order. We will do as you ask, Your order is then your property. As much as we would like, we cannot take responsibility once we have dropped off your order as instructed.
Is there a minimum order?
Can I just place an order as and when I want to order something on an ad hoc basis?
Yes - it’s so easy to do this now through the website on your phone or online.
Do I have to contact you each time I want a delivery if I have subscribed?
No - our system runs on a "repeat order" basis. Working with repeat orders lets us cater for the 99% of our customers who would like a regular delivery without the hassle of contacting us each time. Therefore, if we don’t hear from you by the deadlines, we’ll assume that you would like a regular order on an ongoing basis that will remain the same as the previous delivery. You can change this online too.
Do I have to get a box of fruit and veg, or can I just order from the product list?
You don’t have to have a box of fruit/veg if you don’t want and can order just what you would like.
Are there deadlines for changing my orders?
We can accommodate changes to your order every week - if you let us know by 9am the day before your delivery is due to leave.
If you have a regular delivery and don't let us know by your deadline then your standard order will arrive, and that's what we'll charge you for.
Once subscribed do I have to have a weekly box?
Absolutely not! You can have deliveries as often or as little as you like. The whole point of a regular delivery is that it suits your needs! (The majority of our customers have a weekly delivery. Our default is a weekly box unless you have advised us of a different frequency or have set up a different schedule.) Please don’t be shy in getting in touch with the Grow Wild office team so that we can tinker with your order until it works for you.
How do I set up a delivery?
You can place your order online or through our website or your phone. You can always do the old-fashioned thing too and call us!
Can I have my order delivered to work?
Yes! This is no problem at all, as long as we can get access, and there is a way of handing over a box and picking up your old box!
Is there a delivery charge?
There is a small delivery charge dependent upon your area (we have divided our delivery area into Zones). For example:
South Queensferry £2
Edinburgh West £3
Everywhere else starts from £6.95. Enter your postcode at checkout for an accurate charge.
What time can I expect my delivery?
We use a natty little bit of software for scheduling deliveries - which has revolutionised the Grow Wild world! This makes for efficient routes, helps the driver to find you, and allows you to track your delivery.
You will get an email the day before your delivery is due with an estimated time of arrival.
Our deliveries are made during the day, which is why we like to have a pre-arranged place to leave your order if you are going to be out when the delivery is being made.
What day will my delivery come?
The day you will receive your delivery is dependent on your postcode and will be allocated once we know your full address. Your delivery day will fall into one of the days as outlined below.
- We deliver to Linlithgow & South Queensferry on Tuesdays
- We deliver to the Central region and West Lothian on Wednesdays. The majority of our courier deliveries are delivered on Wednesdays.
- We deliver to Edinburgh on Thursdays.
Who delivers my order?
Your deliveries will be made either by one of the Grow Wilders using one of our own electric vehicles or if you are further afield by our reliable courier company APC. (If you are local to us in Linlithgow you might like to pop up to the farm store instead, to see the whole range.)
What if I order chilled products (e.g. meat, dairy) but can't be at home to receive them?
The best way to get around this problem is for you to leave a cool box out! Your helpful and friendly driver is only too happy to transfer any chilled products into the cool box so that they are in good nick upon your return.
Where will you leave my delivery if I am out?
When you register, please let us know of a convenient place where your order can be left by your driver. (Also please provide us with what.three.words. location). This may be round the back of your house, in the garden shed, behind the hedge, or wherever you tell us! If your order is going to be open to the elements, often the driver will stick a black bag over your order.
NB TOWN DWELLERS in our own delivery areas…. If you live in a tenement, which many of our Edinburgh customers do, then providing us with a main stair key enables the driver to get into your block and leave your order directly outside your flat door. This has become common practice over the years.
What do I do with my empty box?
Please do keep your box if you are able, so that we can pick it up when we make your next delivery.We re-use boxes in good condition and line them with fresh paper on a weekly basis. This keeps costs down, reduces wastage, and saves the environment. Please reuse the black bag that your order was covered with.
What if I don’t want some items in my box?
Absolutely, we can change up to two things out of your box for something else. Please also do let us know of any allergies that you have. We really do want you to have an order you are entirely satisfied with!
What if I get something in my box that I have said I don’t like?
We can absolutely make up to two swaps for something else in your box! Just let us know if something has sneaked into your box that you don't like, and we will always put it right for you!
What if something in my box isn’t up to your usual quality standard?
This really shouldn’t happen – but if it does, please do give us a quick buzz or drop us an email.We will of course add something extra into your next order by way of compensation. We would far rather be informed so that we are made aware of any specific quality issues, rather than you saying nothing and being disappointed. We like to be able to put any mistakes right (and to be able to go back to our suppliers to find out what the problem has been).
What if I’m not entirely satisfied with my order?
Please, please, please let us know. We hope you enjoy your produce and that you are entirely satisfied with your order. However, if you have any negative comments about your order - Please contact us. We welcome feedback, we do listen, and we do take steps to act on comments when possible. We actively encourage all types of feedback since it enables us to address any problems that we may be unaware of.

You can check your emailnotification. Otherwise, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at the office and we can find out if there is a problem and call you back.
What if I am out when my delivery arrives?
We always refer to the delivery instructions you gave us when you set up the order which is noted in the delivery software for the driver.If you have given us an alternative place for the driver to leave your order, please check there. If it isn’t there - please call us so that we contact the driver to find out if there has been a problem.
What do I do if an order arrives that I wasn’t expecting?
Please let us know as soon as you can!We will uplift it if possible (if the driver is still in your area), and credit your account. If our driver is unable to pick it up, you will of course not be charged for the delivery, but please call us to discuss what to do next.
If I email you or leave a phone message, how do I know you have received it and acted?
We ALWAYS without fail acknowledge all emails coming into the office, and call you back so you can be assured that we have dealt with your request. All emails should be responded to within 24 hours unless over a weekend (during office hours), if you haven’t received a response, give us a quick call, since it is likely we haven’t received your email.

The Soil Association organic symbol is a trademark for organic produce.
Grow Wild has been fully Licensed by the Soil Association since 1998. You can see our current Licenses any time you like! They are here to see or download.
Wherever you see it you can be sure that the food you have purchased has been produced and processed to strict animal welfare and environmental standards. The Soil Association has probably the highest and most comprehensive standards for organic production and processing in the world.
Soil Association standards not only meet the UK government's minimum requirements but in many areas are higher. This is particularly true with animal welfare (for example, pigs and poultry) and the use of pesticides.
Animal welfare questions..What is the difference between organic and free-range eggs?
There are specific EU regulations for each of these systems. Standards have been set for organic and 'free range' which stipulate among other things flock sizes, stocking densities and how many hens can share a nest. Organic standards always state that hens must have access to outside areas, however they also go further than free range standards in a number of important ways.
One of the ways in which organic standards differ from 'free range' is that organic standards stipulate smaller flock sizes and lower stocking densities (the number of birds per square meter.) Smaller flock sizes help to ensure healthier and less stressed birds.
Feather pecking is a particular problem on large units and wherever hens are crowded into small spaces. Birds can be seriously injured and even killed as a result. To prevent this, the majority of 'free-range' hens are beak-trimmed – a mutilation that can be painful and also prevents the hens from expressing their natural behaviour by foraging. This practice is heavily restricted by the Soil Association.
Organic farms certified by the Soil Association have to provide more pop holes (exits from the hen house) than 'free range' farms do, to ensure access to pasture is not restricted. Generally speaking, in larger flocks a smaller proportion of birds go outside.
Be careful about misleading labelling - 'farm fresh' or 'country fresh' does not necessarily mean free range.
What is the difference between Soil Association eggs and other organic eggs?
The main differences occur in the sizes of the flocks and the rotation of the land over which the hens can roam. Hens like to dust-bathe, peck and scratch at the earth. If hens are kept in large numbers, the ground can become bare and can sometimes, after a while, harbour potentially harmful diseases. To prevent the birds becoming ill, the ground needs to be rested.
The Soil Association states that the land must be rested for nine months, whereas the basic UK standards state that it only needs two months. In order to maintain the best possible animal welfare, the Soil Association recommends flock sizes of no more than 500 birds. Where farms can demonstrate high levels of welfare, up to 1,000 meat birds are allowed in a house, or 2,000 for egg laying birds. In contrast, non-Soil Association chickens reared to the current EU rules often live in huge flocks - with as many as 9,000 in a single shed - and then sold as organic.
In smaller flocks the chickens are truly free range. In larger flocks, chickens are more likely to block the doors and this means that many birds may never go outside. Many experts believe that keeping flock sizes small helps to reduce the risk of serious suffering for chickens, caused in part by the birds getting bored and pecking each other's feathers, causing bleeding and even death.
How does the life of a chicken raised on a Soil Association certified farm differ from an intensively reared chicken?
Intensively reared broiler chickens (reared for their meat) are normally housed in groups of up to 40,000 in large sheds; turkeys in groups of up to 25,000. It now takes intensive broiler chickens half the time - just 41 days - to reach their slaughter weight than it did 30 years ago. Modern breeds of chicken have been developed to put on weight quickly and the rate of growth is often further accelerated by growth-promoting drugs. The rapid growth rates often mean that the birds’ hearts and lungs can’t keep pace with the rapid muscle growth and they suffer from painful skeletal problems. 100,000 birds die each day in UK broiler sheds because of heart failure, disease and afflictions caused by intensive methods of production.
On Soil Association organic farms, hens are able to exercise more of their natural behaviour, including ranging freely, scratching, dustbathing and feeding in grass fields. To enable them to do this, organic chickens have continuous daytime access to pasture and range, except during bad weather. Organic farmers are encouraged to choose slower growing breeds which are well suited to free range systems and growth-promoting drugs are banned.
There is widespread concern about the use of antibiotics in intensive poultry units. Due to the large flocks, disease can spread very quickly. Low doses, given in feed and water, are a form of insurance for the farmer. But long-term, low-dose exposure is far more likely to create resistance to antibiotics - many of which are also used to treat humans. Organic farmers would only use a course of antibiotics to treat a specific problem and to prevent any unnecessary suffering.
How does an organic pig’s life differ from an intensively reared pig?
Pigs are natural foragers – they enjoy rooting and exploring. They are highly inquisitive, social animals and have a language which contains some forty different expressions for passing on information. However over 70% of intensively reared pigs spend their entire life indoors. This means that they cannot display many of their natural tendencies and instead display much unnatural behaviour such as tail biting, bar biting and head shaking. To prevent them rooting up the earth, intensively reared pigs are also subject to mutilations such as nose ringing.
Organically reared pigs must be able to free range allowing them to move around and wallow in mud and they cannot be ringed through the nose. A week before intensively kept sows give birth, most are placed in a farrowing crate (a small metal cage only inches wider than the animal). The sows are unable to turn around and can only stand up, lie down, or suckle their piglets once they are born. They remain in the crate until their piglets are weaned at around three weeks.
Close confinement can cause muscle weakness, lameness, and inflammatory swellings of the joints. The crates are designed to maximise productivity as sows are less likely to lie on their piglets. Ultimately the crates drive down the cost of meat. The use of farrowing crates in pig production is prohibited under Soil Association standards.
Intensively reared pigs in the EU may have been tethered or lived their entire life in a sow stall. Tethers and sow stalls have been banned in the UK but it is worth noting that a lot of non-UK pigmeat is still sold in UK supermarkets. There is no independent verification of free range pork.
How does an organic dairy cow’s life differ from a non organic dairy cow?
Modern dairy cows have been selectively bred over many generations to produce as much milk as possible. Over 90% of dairy cows are black-and-white Holstein type. These cows can produce approximately ten times as much milk as a calf would naturally suckle, but there can be a price to pay in terms of their welfare. Mastitis (a painful inflammation of the udder), lameness and a number of other diseases means that many of the highest yielding cows suffer from some pain and discomfort through their productive life. The majority of cows in intensive high-yielding herds will often be culled after producing less than four calves due to infertility and disease resulting from stress. Wild cattle would average 10 calves and many organic dairy farmers will have cows still producing milk after producing 10 calves.
Organic farmers believe that stress is one of the primary causes of disease and welfare problems in intensive livestock farming. The Soil Association standards for organic farming are designed to reduce stress to farmed livestock through a variety of management techniques. Farmers are encouraged to use native breeds of cow (like Dairy Shorthorn). These are rarely capable of yielding as much milk as modern dairy breeds (like Holstein), but they are very well adapted to making good use of home grown forage (grass, hay or silage - fermented grass)to produce milk and are hardier and less susceptible to disease.
High-yielding dairy cows require a lot of concentrated (high energy, cereal based) feed in order to provide them with the right amount of energy to maintain their own metabolism and to produce the desired amount of milk. The high incidence of lameness in dairy herds is associated with large rations of concentrated feeds which affect the horn quality of the hoof. Feed for organic dairy cows must consist mainly (a minimum of 60%) of home-grown grass or forage. This is because organic farming is a holistic, non-input based agricultural production system and so farmers try to grow what they need. The restriction on the amount of cereal organic cows can eat usually results in them producing less milk and therefore experiencing less stress. Studies have also shown a lower incidence of lameness on dairy farms (www.organic-vet.reading.ac.uk).
How does an organic beef cow’s life differ from an intensively reared beef cow?
There can be vast differences in the amount of time that non-organic cattle spend grazing. The most intensive systems involve keeping bull calves indoors or in yards. Bull calves are used as they grow quickly. They are fed on high levels of concentrated feeds and silage and finished (fattened up) as quickly as possible. The animals are confined in high numbers, which can increase the risk of infectious diseases such as pneumonia.
Less intensive systems allow the calves - castrated bulls and heifers (female cows) - to remain with their mothers. The whole herd is allowed to graze for one or two summers and may be brought indoors during the winter. All beef in the UK is either produced from herds that use specific beef breeds such as Aberdeen Angus, South Devon or Hereford, or from dairy herds where a bull from a beef breed is crossed with the cows.
Organic producers are encouraged to choose breeds that suit the conditions on their farm. An organic beef system allows cows and their calves to graze pasture for most of their lives. They can be finished in well-bedded spacious yards, providing this period does not exceed a fifth of their lifetime. Organic cattle do not have to be housed during the winter, but if they are kept outside, there must be shelter, food and water.
As with organic dairy cows at least 60 per cent of the cow’s diet must consist of grass, hay or silage. Intestinal worms are a common problem in all cattle and can be avoided on organic farms by rotating the pastures and allowing the calves to develop a natural immunity from their mothers. Rotating pastures means moving animals to different fields on the farm. The beef labelling scheme ensures the verification of any information put onto packs of beef. Beef that is labelled free range, grass fed or of course organic will come from welfare friendly systems. If nothing is specified about the system of production, there is no way of knowing that the beef that you buy has not come from an intensive bull-beef system.
How would an organic sheep’s life have differed from a non-organic sheep?
Approximately half of the nation's sheep (organic and non-organic) are found on hilly upland areas. Most sheep can free range for most of their lives, although some may be brought inside to give birth. Stocking rates will generally be lower on organic farms that other farms.
The big difference between organic and non-organic sheep systems are the methods used to control and prevent diseases. Non-organic sheep are likely to receive many more veterinary treatments than organic sheep. For example, many non-organic lambs will be wormed every four to six weeks, regardless of need and new-born lambs may be given antibiotics as a prophylactic (preventative) treatment. Organic farmers manage their flocks carefully to reduce the disease risk to new born lambs and use clean grazing systems to minimise the need for worming.
Clean grazing involves managing pastures so that sheep, and particularly lambs, are only put into fields that have very low or no worm infestation. A piece of land that has not had sheep on it for twelve months or more would be classed as being clean, this could be land that had crops grown on it the previous year or had cattle kept on it. When worming is necessary only certain treatments that do not leave residues are permitted. Some wormers can leave a residue in the animal's dung which can then affect soil microorganisms.
Many non-organic farmers use organo-phosphorus dips to control sheep scab. Organo-phosphorus dips are prohibited in organic systems as they have serious health implication for animal and humans. Double fencing can help to prevent sheep scab, which can spread when infected sheep rub on fences dividing them from healthy ones. However, this method is impractical on upland areas.
Maintaining a closed flock (no bought-in stock) can also prevent disease. Organic farmers who buy in breeding stock are advised to check their health status and quarantine them before they run with the main flock. It is well known that stress renders animals more vulnerable to disease and some organic farmers think that measures designed to protect the health of non organic sheep - dipping, drenching, vaccinating - are often unnecessarily stressful.
What is our Environmental Policy?
At Grow Wild, we care about what we do and the impact it has on the environment. Embedded in the very core of what we do relates to promoting proper treatment of the environment. We thought we would let you know where we stand on this issue.
By the nature of the service we offer, we are committed to supplying food produced without any harmful side effects to the environment, not treated with chemical herbicides, pesticides, and GM free. The best things in life are free, and being able to do something (takes a little effort, but not at a great cost) which contributes positively to the environment is a must, as far as we are concerned.
We are committed to:
- Recycling. We re-use boxes until they have come to the end of their useful life, after which all cardboard is uplifted for recycling. The wooden crates, when they are past their best are recycled locally into wood chippings.
- All paper waste generated in the office is recycled (or is shredded for a local funeral director’s use in pillows), as are egg cartons returned by our customers, and shrink-wrap that keeps the boxes from falling off incoming pallets!
- We aim to keep fresh waste to a minimum by sourcing from quality suppliers. However, in order to supply top-notch quality fresh food to our customers, each item is quality checked before being packed, and some items are discarded as substandard. All fresh produce waste is sent to a local organic farmer for either feeding to his organic Tamworth piggies, or for making organic compost.
- Packaging. We aim to keep packaging to a minimum, and therefore if possible, we put unpackaged fresh produce directly into boxes. Where packaging is required (so that leafy goods don’t wilt before they reach our customers, and tomatoes don’t get squashed), we use bags made from recycled paper, and clear bags made without polyvinyl chloride (PVC) to meet the standards set out by the Soil Association.
- If you are a customer and would prefer NO packaging at all – we would be delighted to hear from you.
- Our bought-in boxes branded Grow Wild are made from 100% recycled materials.
- Efficient use of resources. In relation to transport, our vans are making multi-drops, thereby reducing the number of individual trips made by individual consumers. If one of our vans is making 70 drops of groceries per day, that is saving 70 individual trips to the supermarket!
- Our drivers’ schedules are always organised in the most distance-efficient way so that they aren’t zig-zagging all over Scotland.
- Operations. We always use environmentally friendly cleaning products for our packing area, and a lot of elbow grease!
- We don’t use or deal with: chemical coatings, dyes or inks that contain phthalates, materials or substances derived from genetically modified organisms, excess packaging, wood that has been treated with preservatives.
We keep checking into better ways of doing things in a commitment to continuous improvement (e.g. we are looking into alternatives - like compostable bags, alternative bags for potatoes, etc).
We also monitor our progress, and review our environmental policy and processes annually.
For further information on waste minimisation, SWAG is a useful website to have a look at.
At Grow Wild we need to keep in touch with our customers about their orders by email, phone (and sometimes text). We also enjoy sharing what’s happening on the farm with you from time to time - we may contact you with our special offers, Christmas order sheets, news about produce and quality issues, and news on our latest projects, and our recipes
