Produce for households:
Our produce is available to Canberra, Queanbeyan and Captains Flat households through a weekly or fortnightly pre-paid subscription to a mixed produce box. We like to keep it small and personal, so we can build relationships between the farm and the people we feed. This means we are only able to offer a very limited number of subscriptions per season.
- Pre-paid subscriptions help us to cover some of the upfront costs of growing your food, such as seeds and compost.
- We spend less time on administration and more time and energy on growing the best quality and most nutritious food we can.
- Your commitment to us provides us with a stable market and a steady and reliable income over the season, this takes a lot of the stress and uncertainty out of farming for us.
What's in a box?
Our produce is grown without chemicals and is seasonal to the Canberra region, so Spring is filled with greens and baby root vegetables, Summer is all about heirloom tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchinis and salad crops and Autumn will fill your table with all the vegetables needed for a good stew. We get up at the crack of dawn and pick everything fresh on the SAME DAY you receive your produce box. We pack our vegetables in recycled boxes and try our best to minimise the use of plastic where possible.
Boxes come in a standard size and are made up of a share of everything that is ready to eat on the farm that week. This means you will usually receive 8-12 different types of vegetables and 1/2 a dozen pastured, free range eggs. We try our best to mix it up from week to week so you don't feel overloaded with particular things, but we also encourage you to make hay whilst the sun shines; preserve, ferment, freeze or knock on a neighbour's door and share the love, because there is a season for everything!
Weekly or fortnightly?
We've discovered that every household is very different in the amount of vegetables they go through in a week. However, as a rough guide, we reckon a weekly subscription will feed a family or 2 very enthusiastic veggie eaters, and a fortnightly subscription will feed a couple or single household.
Queanbeyan and Canberra households: Your produce box will be available to pick up on Thursdays between 4-6pm from 4 Drummond Row, Yarralumla, ACT.
Captains Flat: We deliver your produce boxes to your door on Tuesday evenings between 4:30 and 6:30 pm. If you are not home, a damp cloth left out in a shady spot to cover your box will help keep your produce crisp.
WEEKLY: $360 (a box every week for 8 weeks)
FORTNIGHTLY: $180 (a box every second week for 8 weeks)
Sorry folks! We are SOLD OUT of Summer Subscriptions. Stay tuned for Autumn places opening in March.
