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

Orders for our all-Tasmanian fruit and veg boxes are now open for April! To place an order, just let us know by email what box type and optional add-ons you’d like on each of the following dates.

  • 6th April
  • 13th April
  • 20th April
  • 27th April

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, along with any items you’d like excluded. 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. Delivery is available in a wide range of areas, and we also offer third-party delivery to locations in the Huon and the east coast.

April sees the days beginning to shorten (especially when daylight savings kicks in this weekend!) and the cooler weather triggers many plants into hunkering down for the winter. Most fruit has already reached maturity – including cucurbits like pumpkin, zucchini and cucumber – and as a result of plants putting energy aside for winter, we’re able to enjoy a great range of delicious root vegetables. However, brassica – broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and the delicious Brussels sprout – are made of sterner stuff and thrive in the milder weather of autumn, and figs and feijoas are yet to come.

With the diminishing range of seasonal fruit we’ll no longer offer our fruit supplement from April, and avocados will only be available for the first two weeks of April. We’ll continue to offer a great range of other local, seasonal add-ons though, including a reduced range of our own jams and marmalades made using local and often home-grown fruit.

Please email backyardbounty.vegiebox@gmail.com to order for April or for any enquiries, and we’ll get back to you soon!
