Why organic vegetable boxes?
Growing organic veggies means no harmful chemicals in your food, or running off into waterways. It means minimising soil erosion, and maximising soil health. It means embracing biodiversity and respecting the generations to come.
Good For You
- Eat better- our boxes are 100% organic so you can be confident there are no nasties.
- We curate each box for you, and harvest (or pick up fresh from local farms) the morning of your delivery.
- You choose the size of your box, add fruit or eggs, and can pause or cancel at any time.
- We know eating seasonally can be tricky when you start, so we share recipes, videos and run an online community to help.
- Visit the farm, or we deliver to your door locally.
Good for the Planet
- All of our produce is grown on site or grown on other local farms to ensure low food miles and a strong local economy.
- Eating out of a veggie box allows farmers to plan, grow and harvest for you, hugely reducing food wastage.
- Zero waste means less plastic in landfill and our oceans.
- 100% organic means lowering our impact on the environment.
- Our community boxes send healthy food to those who need it most.

The fact that I am supporting local, organic farms is the cherry on top!”Dylan Rigoni

When do I get my vegetable box?
Vegetable box orders received before 6pm each Saturday will be available the following week (2-5 days). Boxes are delivered to Mornington, Mt Martha and our pick up points in Dromana and Red Hill on Tuesday afternoon. Boxes for Frankston, Mt Eliza are delivered Friday afternoon and Farm Pick Ups are available Friday 3-5pm or Saturday 9-12noon.
Unfortunately we can’t accept late orders, sorry! If you place your order on Sunday it will not be available until the next week (10-13 days).
Can I pause/adjust/cancel my box?
At any time, you can pause, adjust or cancel your box – provided it’s done before 6pm on Saturday for the following week. Once payment has been received you will receive a box.
Login to your account on our website and make the changes.
Do I need to sign up?
Our boxes run via a subscription model, providing some certainty for growing vegetables. We usually offer a One-off box to try- these are all Community boxes. At the moment we are NOT offering One Off boxes. We are incredibly under the pump right now and simply cannot justify the extra admin time required.
We understand eating 100% local, seasonal, and out of a box is not for everybody, but by signing up right now you are committing to giving it a red hot go- at least three boxes.
Are my vegetables organic?
Yes. 100% organic. Most is certified organic. Some are not certified. But all vegetables are organic.
Are my vegetables local?
Yes. While we produce some of the organic vegetable box ourselves, we can’t grow it all – so we work with other organic vegetable growers. Vegetables sourced from other growers are always grown within 80km of Moorooduc.
There are many amazing organic growers in our region, and it’s not easy to access them all. That’s why we’ve put together this vegetable box so that picking and packing is easier for everyone.
Does my box have waste/plastic?
No. There are no single use plastics in these boxes. You will need to store you vegetables in your own containers once they’re home.
Reusable crates are used to deliver your vegetables, and these must be returned. (UPDATE: we are using paper bags for delivery while COVID-19 is a serious issue. These bags can be recycled or composted.)
How big is my box?
You have 3 options – small, medium and large. Small boxes (5/6 different types of vegetables) are designed for singles or couple who eat out regularly. Medium boxes (6 different types of vegetables, but greater quantities) are best for couples or families who eat out regularly. While Large boxes (8/9 different types of vegetables in large quantities) work for families and hungry vegetarian couples!
Can I choose the vegetables in my box?
No. Boxes are curated each week and are dependent on the vegetables available in our region. Each week the vegetables change. And each season the range of vegetables varies.
If you need limited customisation, please choose to pick up your box- we have a swap box available for you to switch things around if you need. If you need delivery, but also grow your own tomatoes/onions/greens please pass the excess along to a friend or neighbour.
How do I know what to cook?
Every week an email with recipe ideas is sent to you.
You’re also welcome to join our Facebook group where everyone shares their recipes and cooking experiences each week.
What if I have leftover vegetables?
You’re encouraged to cook/freeze any extra vegetables from your box. If you don’t want to do that, you can bring any vegetable scraps to our farm and we will put them in our community compost bins.
If you consistently have remaining vegetables, then consider changing the size of your box.
Am I in the delivery area?
We deliver to Frankston, Frankston South, Mount Eliza, Mornington and Mount Martha. If you’re not in this area, please get in touch and we’ll try and deliver once we have enough of your neighbours interested.
What is a Community Box?
A Community box is the same size, and the same veg, as our regular box. The extra 10% paid buys vegetables that are donated directly to people who are living below the poverty line on the Mornington Peninsula. We believe that everyone deserves access to ethical food, and that your economics shouldn’t effect your health (or access to healthy food). If you feel the same please consider our community box.
How do I use my farm tour tickets?
Email us with your preferred date for your farm tour and if there’s space we’ll fit you in 🙂 Sometimes we do get busy and there may be a bit of a delay, so please try and organise well in advance.
