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

Orders for our all-Tasmanian fruit and veg boxes are now open for December! 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 December
  • 13th December
  • 20th December

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 or $6 extra depending upon area) 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.

In addition to the three regular Friday boxes in December, we’re offering a pick-up only Christmas extras box on the 24th (yes, that’s Christmas eve!) The 24th is not part of our regular subscription offers, and orders must be placed by completing the order form – we’ll be scouting around picking up the freshest local berries, fruit and baked goods so they’ll be in perfect condition for Christmas day. Orders must be placed no later than the 17th of December and collection will be from 21 Oldham Avenue, New Town between 9 AM and 1 PM on the 24th. To order complete either the Excel or PDF version of the form below and email it in – the Excel format is preferred as it works out all the totals automatically.

December in Tasmania sees the beginning of the summer fruit season – cherries are generally first cab off the rank, followed by early raspberries, and then around Christmas we’ll have blueberries and peaches. (Nectarines, plums and apricots tend to come a little later). Loose carrots and a variety of new season potatoes also begin harvest later in the month, and fingers crossed we might also see some fresh podding peas!

For December only we’re also offering some special Christmas bakery items:

  • pain au chocolate, raspberry pain au chocolate and seasonal fruit danishes (all $4) from Imago Bakery & Patisserie
  • Christmas pudding ($21.5), Christmas Cake ($19.5) and Pavlova bases ($9) from RT Fish Bakery

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