Box Schemes North
Box Schemes in the North of England
The North of England is renowned for its meat production particularly sheep, who graze across vast areas of open farmland. However, the area is also home to a huge number of family-run fruit and veg farms, with organic traditions dating back generations. Asparagus, rhubarb, potatoes and peas are just a few of the region's many specialisms.
