Why our herbs are different
Our fresh herbs are grown organically. They are washed before being taken to market and are sold in 100% biodegradable packaging (made from cornstarch by Vegware). Our herbs are significantly cheaper (and usually substantially fresher) than those found at major supermarkets. We pick the morning of each market so the herbs are picked, washed, packaged and sold the same day.
We grow, harvest, wash, dry and package our herbs which means we control the end-to-end process. As small-scale, artisan producers we use manual processes to ensures the highest quality output. It takes time, effort and attention to detail – but it is worth it.
At Within Radius we pride ourselves in our drying techniques. We pick at specific times of the day (depending on what we are harvesting) and minimise the time between picking and drying to ensure a vibrant product that retains its flavour and colour.
We produce a limited quantity of each product so we can control the quality at every step of the process. We pick and dry continuously throughout the growing season. As soon as the drying process is complete the product is made available to our customers. This means our herbs remains vibrant, retain their colour and are highly aromatic (everything you want your herbs to be) when they reach the consumer. We therefore encourage you to use them as soon as possible. After all, if we look after mother nature, she will always provide more.
Our prices compared to supermarkets
The price of our fresh herbs is on par with the larger supermarkets. We are able to compete on price with supermarket brands because we do not have to pay for shipping costs (sometimes half way around the world). We have not have to pay a third party to process our herbs and we have not had to pay for prime position on supermarket shelves. Instead, we put all our effort into our labour so we can create the best possible product.
