Frequently Asked Questions
Weekly or Fortnightly?
There will be 10-14 items each week in the box. A weekly pick up will be suited to a family or couple who eats seasonally and has vegetables every night. A fortnightly share is suited to someone on their own, or a couple or family that plans to buy most of their veggies elsewhere.
How do I pick up my box?
Boxes can be picked up from the farm gate anytime between 8am and 6pm. They are stored in a fridge to keep the produce fresh - so take a box and pack it into your own bag. You can pay for it at the time of pick up.
I grow my own and don't need some items OR I don't like....
We're ex-home gardeners and have had a glut of tomatoes and zucchinis before ourselves (and also a few other less endearing vegetables). We will have a system for swapping veggies in time to come so watch this space...
What can I expect in my box?
Your vegetable box will vary from week to week according to the seasonal availability of produce. Eating seasonally means that you will get your fresh, Biodynamic produce grown at the time of year that nature intended, when it has its maximum nutritional value. Eating seasonally also means that you might be consulting a cookbook, asking friends or your farmer about recipe ideas, and setting yourself the occasional vegetable themed challenge. You might also learn to ferment, dehydrate or preserve your produce for the months where you might get cravings for another season.
Each week, we will have certain staples such as salad mix, rainbow chard, and root vegetables such as carrots or beetroot. Then according to the season, you will also see some of the following vegetables depending on what we have available that year:
Summer: tomato, basil, zucchini, cucumber,
Autumn: eggplant, capsicum, beans, melons
Winter: cabbage, broccoli, kale, cauliflower
Spring: asian greens, spring onions, peas, kohlrabi
