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

Orders for our all-Tasmanian fruit and veg boxes are now open for January! 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.

  • 18th January
  • 24th January (please note that this is the day before the Australia day long weekend

Summer is a period of abundance in the Tasmanian seasonal calendar – with the exception of a few members of the brassica family, pumpkins, nuts, and pomes (apples and pears), virtually every type of fruit and vegetable is available. Zucchini will begin to make their appearance, avocados have just started, new season onions and garlic are at their peak, and carrot season is in full flight. Apricots, cherries, plums, peaches and nectarines are all being picked (weather permitting) and strawberries, blueberries and raspberries are also plentiful.

To celebrate the abundance we offer the opportunity to add extra fruit to your order in January and February – $10 will get you two or three extra fruit items in your box, or you can splurge and add a full fruit-only box to your order for $25 (the latter is also available as a stand-alone order). Avocados can also be included with your order at $8 for 500g. Both fruit and avocados can also be bought in bulk for better prices – keep an eye on our wholesale offers page every Monday if you would like to buy big!

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 and existing 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.

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