Orders for our November all-Tasmanian produce boxes are now open!

Orders for our all-Tasmanian fruit and veg boxes are now open for November! To place an order, just let us know by email (backyardbounty.vegiebox@gmail.com) what box type and optional add-ons you’d like on each of the following dates. If you’re ordering for the first time or you’re changing your delivery/pick-up status you’ll need to specify which of these two options you’d prefer when ordering. New customers are also welcome to order a single box to try the service first, and as an added incentive, delivery (normally $5 extra) is free with your first box. Don’t forget – you’re welcome to specify exclusions with your box – when your excluded items are in a box, they’ll be swapped for something of equivalent value.

November is the true beginning of spring in our southern state: the weather begins to move from gale-force winds to sunny warmth, fruit trees blossom and plants wake up from their winter slumber. We’re crossing our fingers for our Tassie farmers this season – it hasn’t been the best of winters, but if things can dry out a bit over spring a great summer should make up for it! As the days get longer, al fresco cooking becomes a more appealing option, and with it the salads that spring offers up on a plate – new season pink-eyes, fresh herbs and salad greens. Pumpkin, pears, apples, nuts and grains – nature’s winter larder – move aside for strawberries, broad beans, and spring alliums – garlic, onions. Christmas, raspberries and stone-fruit are just around the corner…

downloadAll customers with subscription orders should now have received their November invoices (with the exception of those with amounts outstanding on their October invoices). We’re always more than happy to make changes to your standing order – we want you to enjoy your weekly dose of fresh, local produce! – but a reminder please: all cancellations are due no later than Monday each week. We do our best to swap cancellations with orders from new customers who’ve missed the ordering deadline (which is also Monday COB), but we order Monday night and Tuesday morning to give growers time to harvest and to allow for freight from the north of Tasmania, and only order what we need so that food is not wasted (a big part of the reason we’re able to provide such great value is that our model doesn’t factor in wastage as a cost), so requests for cancellations on Wednesday and Thursday, in the middle of packing and prep, can really be a big headache!

Please email backyardbounty.vegiebox@gmail.com to order for November or for any enquiries, and we’ll get back to you on Saturday and Sunday after the weekly Thursday-Friday packing and delivering madness is over!
