Orders for our all-Tasmanian fruit and veg boxes are now open for May

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

  • 3rd May
  • 10th May
  • 17th May
  • 24th May
  • 31st May

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.

Days are getting shorter and colder – a great time of year for letting us do your grocery shopping for you! We’ll have a great variety of potatoes and winter root veg, along with nuts, onions, garlic and a range of brassicae – cauliflower, broccoli, broccoletti, Brussels sprouts, cabbage – and sweet and juicy apples and pears. Pumpkin is a very strong possibility for May also, although unfortunately this year we’ll have a narrower range to choose from. But there’s plenty of opportunity for lighter eating too – tomatoes and capsicum will continue for a little while longer, herbs and salad greens will continue through the winter, and we’ll even continue to have avocados available for the next month, and a few more weeks of corn. We’re also likely to have some more exotic forgotten fruits this month – feijoas and banana passionfruit!

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