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

12744737_10154041697486337_757072376166459826_nOrders for our all-Tasmanian fruit and veg boxes are now open for February! 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.

12794550_876163112481795_5594993109144382247_nFebruary is possibly the best month of the year when it comes to eating locally in Tasmania – in addition to an abundance of stone fruit and late berries, field tomatoes, cucumbers, corn and zucchini make the beginnings of their brief season, new-season potatoes and onions are at their best, and “winter” veg like cabbage, cauliflowers and carrots are also widely available. We might even see the first of the new-season apples if we’re lucky… Don’t forget we’re still offering our $10 fruit supplement for February – just let us know if you’d like to add this to your order.

All customers with subscription orders should now have received their February invoices (with the exception of those with amounts outstanding on their January 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 get in early to avoid missing out!

Please don’t forget too that we do the environmentally responsible thing and re-use your boxes – these can either be returned when picking up your next box, or left out for pick-up on delivery day.

Please email backyardbounty.vegiebox@gmail.com to order for February 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!
