Organic Fruit and Vegetable Boxes
What fruits/veggies will I get in the box?
Each week we select a mix of fruit and veggies that are in season, so the exact mix of produce will change slightly each week.
Are all the fruit and vegetables certified organic?
Yes, all the fruit and vegetables in your box are certified organic.
As we source our produce from many different organic farms around Victoria and beyond, the organic produce in your box is certified by a range of different certifying bodies such as Australian Certified Organic (ACO) or the National Association for Sustainable Agriculture Australia (NASAA).
Can I choose what I want in the box?
You can't choose what goes in the box, but we can certainly leave out any fruit or veggies that you don't eat. After you've selected your organic box just head to the checkout, and you'll be able to note anything you don't want.
What if I'm not happy with something in the box?
We pick up all our produce the day before we deliver to your door, so everything should be super fresh.
If something doesn't look quite right, please do let us know! You can take a picture and email it to email@example.com

What's the difference between organic food and conventionally grown food?
Organic farming is essentially the way we used to farm before the 1950s when industrialised countries started using artificial fertilisers, pesticides and herbicides in farming as a way to produce higher yields.
Whereas conventional farming will use all sorts of chemicals that are toxic to the soil and waterways, organic farming takes a different approach and works with nature to protect our environment and our health.
Can we visit the farm?
Absolutely. We run farm days exclusively for our subscribers, where you can learn all about organic farming on a working farm (where many of the fruit and veggies you get in your box are grown).
