Our veggie boxes are a celebration of seasonal food. All the veggies you receive in your boxes are grown by us using chemical free, regenerative farming practices on our small plot of land in Bungowannah.
Farming along side mother nature can be tricky at times. Subscribers create a relationship of mutual support and commitment between us as growers and you as members of our farm-ily. As partners in the farming endeavor our farm-ily share the risk and rewards inherent with living closer to nature!
In return for your subscription, which helps your farmers cover the production costs needed to grow the healthiest, highest quality produce possible, you will receive a weekly share of delicious, chemical free, nutrient dense vegetables straight from our patch.
Through regular newsletters, recipe suggestions, farm visits and frequent farm photos, your have the chance to enter into a relationship with your food - where it comes from, who is growing it and the experience it the journey from seed to harvest. We feel it is a truly mutually beneficial relationship so that together we can live more productive and healthier lives and feel connected to the piece of dirt that nourishes us all. Together we are investing in the future… one that we believe in!
What IS A SHARE?
A 'share' is a commitment. Farming along side mother nature can be tricky. Every season is different and every year some things will do better than others. Subscribing to our season means you become partners in this farming endeavor - both our RADeaters and farmers 'share' the risk and rewards with living closely with nature. This relationship puts less emphasis on the $$$ value of the produce and more on the seasonality of food. If a heavy rain in summer splits the tomatoes, chances are the salad greens will go gang busters, or an unexpected cold snap might slow the fruiting of some crops, others will be sweetened. While sometimes there might less of one thing, it generally means they're will be more of another. Sometimes, the harvest is cranking and there is more of everything and this is the true beauty of seasonal eating!

" Casual" // Until our seasonal subscriptions fill we offer an option to buy a casual veggie box of either of the above sizes. We understand that for many people eating seasonally is new. A little scary. This give you the opportunity to dip your toe in. It's an opportunity to get hooked. Once you see the light, the flavours, the connection, how warm the water is - and then you can take the plunge and subscribe!
Our 'shares' are an amazing value! Share values work out to a roughly 20% discount off of our retail prices, over the course of a full season. We do this because we value your choice to support the farm early in the season, before you eat a single vegetable: your early payment allows us to buy seed, fertilizer, and other supplies to kick off the growing season. We couldn't get going in the spring without you! Your share value will always be slightly higher than the weekly cost of the share, and many weeks (especially in summer) it will be far far more valuable than your weekly share cost.
