A Seasonal Celebration of the Organic & Wild Offerings of the Land

5 Dec 2014

 

A Quarterly Delivery of Unique Trill Farm Products

 

Trill Farm has launched its Trill Seasons box scheme, offering a unique collection of seasonal products made from organic, wild harvested and natural ingredients from the land at Trill Farm. 

 

Connecting customers with the rhythms of the seasons, Trill Seasons boxes are delivered to subscribers four times a year in spring, summer, autumn and winter, offering a celebration of the organic and wild offerings of Trill Farm’s land, created using minimal processing and packaging. 

 

Romy Fraser, Founder and Director of Trill Farm says “The majority of Trill Seasons products are unique to the box, and the number of boxes created will not exceed what the farm is able to produce in each season.  It’s a chance for us to make high-quality products based on what’s abundant right now, and share them with people who are passionate about what we do here at Trill.”

 

Each box of the seasonal scheme is packed with a varied collection of products, including*:

Health & Beauty – soaps, balms, oils and beauty products made with wild-crafted seasonal plants selected for their beneficial properties for the skin, along with aromatic herbs and flowers harvested in the Trill herb garden.

Foods - lovingly prepared in The Old Dairy kitchen using the freshest seasonal ingredients from Trill Farm Garden, and wild from our woodlands and hedgerows. Unusual treats, nutritious preserves and must have staples.  

Home & Garden – crafts from the different enterprises on the farm: ceramics, wood, textiles & design, along with recipes, seeds and other treats to remind you of the abundance of the season and bring the countryside colours to your homes.

CUSTOMER FEEDBACK FOR SPRING 2014 BOXES:

 

“I wanted to thank you very much for the lovely box, your standard is very high and the design and branding is wonderful. Congratulations.”

 

“My box arrived and I am writing to thank you for it because it really is wonderful! Every item is a complete joy, and I felt it was such a loving treat. Enough nearly to make me jump on board a train to Musbury and offer my eternal services to the Trill Farm project/cause/charity/place, which perhaps, when London's duties release me, I may just do.”

 

“Just wanted to drop you a line to say what an absolute pleasure it was to receive the box - everything so beautifully presented. I received more than my money's worth - it really was delightful - such a credit to the team at Trill”
