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

Orders for our all-Tasmanian fruit and veg boxes are now open for March! 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 March
  • 13th March
  • 20th March
  • 27th March

Autumn is a hybrid season, which sees both produce that owes its growth to warmer, longer days (many fruits, but also things like pumpkin and root vegetables), along with the beginnings of cauliflower, rhubarb, coriander and others that like the temperate weather of the shoulder seasons. Corn, apples and pears, parsnips and citrus all come into season, while stone fruit are either finished or at the very end of their season. A few fruit “outliers” have their big crops in autumn – figs, kiwi and feijoas.

We’ll continue to offer our fruit supplement and fruit boxes for as long as we’re able to, which will hopefully be throughout March and maybe as long as Easter. Avocados will also continue to be available as an add-on; and if you’re looking for something to smash them on, why not try Manna Bakehouse’s continental pitas, which are great value at $1.2 each! We’re also pleased to be able to offer leatherwood honey again after a shortage – 1kg tubs from Heritage Honey for $20.

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.

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