We are what the Americans would can a ‘Mom and Pop’ store. We don’t have a team of designers, accountants or an IT department. This site has been designed so we can manage it ourselves. If we want to add a new product then we just plonk it on a shelf, take a quick snap of it and add it to the site in minutes.

Similarly, if a product is out of stock we can update this site to indicate so in seconds.

The boring legal bit in plain(ish) English

We all make mistakes. Sometimes we may have got the prices or weights wrong. This does not give you the right to purchase at the price displayed on this site. If we have made a mistake we reserve the right not to sell you a product. We will try offer you an alternative or offer you a refund if the purchase is made in advance. We will do our best to advise you if a product is out of stock as soon as we possibly can and if we have made a mistake we will hold our hands up and say sorry.

Allegen Advice

Because many of our products are packaged at the rear of our shop there is a very slim change of cross contamination and we mean very slim. We are certainly not going to label every product with ‘may contain nuts’*.

All our gluten free products are supplied to us in sealed bags and we do our best to keep them away from other products.

We cannot completely guarantee that that our products will be completely free of allergens.

By the way, peanuts are technically not nuts!

Medicinal Usage

We are not and do not pretend to be herbalists. You use all our non culinary products at your own risk.
