Some of our most-asked questions...
What is the Dirty Dozen?
The Dirty Dozen list is put together every year by the "Environmental Working Group" (EWG). It reveals the fruits and vegetables that are the most likely to be contaminated by pesticides. For example, a single strawberry can have as many as twenty different pesticides.

In Asia, we can add green leafy vegetables to the list. We have also tested on several occasions non organic bananas that were very high on nitrates (this is a fertiliser, not a pesticide, but as hazardous for humans' health when found in high quantities and when one is exposed to repeatedly).
We cannot wash or peel our way out of the problem. Washing removes some residues. Systemic pesticides are inside the produce and cannot be washed away.
At ShiokFarm, we really want every parent to be able to afford to feed their child with food that is as clean as possible. To support them, we have put the 5kg and the 7kg bags together. They focus on the Dirty Dozen produces. Note that both bags contain other organic produces to allow variety.
Can I choose what goes in my fruit & vegetables bag?
We have a wide range of bags to cater to each of our members' needs.
- Our 5 and 7kg Standard bag are good for families of different sizes and focus on the Dirty Dozen fruit and vegetables (those that contain the most pesticide residue when grown with traditional methods).
- With our 3kg Premium bag you can indulge in premium fruit and vegetables like artichoke and berries. Many of our members combine a Standard bag with a Premium bag.
- Our specialty bags include our 6kg Healthy Paleo Diet bag (no nightshade vegetables, mix of standard and premium bag), our 5kg Low Carb Keto bag (vegetable-heavy) and our 7kg Indian Cuisine bag.
- Finally, we have a 3kg Fruit bag for those of you with sweet tooth at home!

If there is a produce in your bag you really do not like, you can offer to exchange it on your WhatsApp group of your collection points. Most of the time, you will find a volunteer to swap with you.
And if none of these options work for you, you can also build your own bag. To do this head to our Fruit & Vegetables section and place your order every week.
Can I know in advance what will be in my bag or box?
