Vegetables from the Elveden Estate

A doorstep delivery business selling groceries from local suppliers has expanded its area due to popular demand.

Elveden Estate’s StonesThrow Food Co, based near Thetford, sells fruit and vegetables, meat, bakery and dairy products, the majority of which come from the estate and local suppliers in Suffolk and Norfolk, along with selected items from farther afield. Boss Richard Walters said: “We have had so much demand since our launch in May, that we have decided to expand our delivery area to include many towns in Norfolk and Bury St Edmunds.”

“Many of our customers are now buying from us regularly three or four times a month, and taking advantage of an increasingly wide range of food. Bread is baked daily and seasonal vegetables are harvested to order, so the quality and taste is unparalleled.”

Elveden Estate owner Lord Iveagh said: “We have had so much demand from people wanting to shop from local suppliers with the convenience of home delivery. Stonesthrow Food Co. is going from strength to strength as people come to appreciate the quality of the product and that the prices are benchmarked against the supermarkets to offer great value.”
