We run our market garden using organic, bio-intensive, low-till principles. We feed our soil with biochar, compost, and compost teas. The result is nutrient dense, vibrant food which tastes amazing and delivers a health - giving punch.
All of our products are packaged in home-compostable packaging and if you don't have your own compost you can return it to us, and we will compost it for you. We also have a packaging free option - a box of our greens products, delivered in a returnable container. This option includes a deposit which gets you 2 containers with your name on them.

how it works
We have developed a range of regular product lines to enable you to order your favourites things on subscription. This season, we are offering 3 types of salad mix, edible bouquets, beans & peas, and carrots on subscription. We have various other products too but these wil not be available every week like our subscription products.
To arrange a subscription order here's what you do:
First, set up an account on the Open Food Network. Go to our shop and add products labelled 'subscription' to your order. When you checkout select 'subscription order' as your delivery option to ensure you get free delivery. You can pay by credit card or you can set up a recurring automatic payment from your bank account to ours. We'll contact you to arrange this once you place your order.
The great thing about subscription ordering is you don't have to remember to order and make payments each week. Your favourite veggies just turn up at your door, fresh from our farm to you. You are welcome to make additional (non-subscription) purchases from our shop and these will be included in your free delivery.
To be first to know when our various subscription products become available drop us a note and we will add you to our newsletter.
