What is a Solidarity box?

All of the vegetables in the box will be organic, and grown locally. There will be no mangoes, bananas or coconuts. No winter tomatoes, or spring pumpkins. The produce will be picked on each Friday morning and packed Friday afternoon. Your organic veggie box will be ready for you to pick up on Saturday morning. So you know it’ll be super fresh. We’re talking local, seasonal eating at it’s best: 24 hours from field to fridge.

Organic Veggie box Mornington Peninsula

We are starting with two sizes of organic vegetable box: regular and large. The regular box will contain 6 types of organic vegetables, while the large box will contain 9 types, in greater quantities.

Want a bit more of an example? Fair enough! Below are samples of what a July box might contain:

Regular – $30

  • 1 bunch of carrots
  • 1kg pumpkin
  • 1 green cabbage
  • 1 bunch of silverbeet
  • 500g broccoli
  • 1 bunch of rhubarb

Large – $50

  • 1 bunch of carrots
  • 2kg pumpkin
  • 1kg dutch cream potatoes
  • 1 bunch of silverbeet
  • 1 green cabbage
  • 1 bunch of beetroot
  • 1kg broccoli
  • 2 leeks
  • 1 bunch of rhubarb

Your box will be different each week – For example, you may only receive potatoes or pumpkin once every three weeks. Other items, like carrots or broccoli may be in the box more regularly.

Where does the veg come from?

All of the vegetables in our boxes are grown within 50km of Moorooduc. Some of them will be produced here at Heritage Farm, the rest will come from other local organic farms. There are so many amazing ethical growers and gatherers located in our region and we believe in supporting as many as possible! Not everyone has time to stop at multiple individual farm gates (including us), and some growers just want to concentrate on farming, not running a shop. So to make it easier for everyone we’re picking up and packing an organic veggie box.

How do I pay?

For the beta launch, you’ll be invoiced each week for a bank transfer or you can pay for the entire 6 weeks in advance .

We like feeding people, not feeding banks. So at this stage we’re not accepting Paypal, credit card or any other fee-heavy method of payment.

Can I buy a vegetable box in your farm shop on the day?

No. Sales of our organic vegetable box are strictly online and made in advance.

Will everything in my box be organic?

100% of the vegetables in your box will be organic. Most will be certified organic. That is, we’ve met the farmers, and they are practising organic techniques and growing practices, but don’t have a piece of paper to prove it. There will be no conventionally grown produce in your box.

Will there be plastic packaging in my box?

The short answer is no. We strongly believe in no single use plastics- to the point that you’re more likely to get your salad mix loose in the box than in a plastic bag! We may use unlined paper bags, but realistically you need to store your veg in your own containers when you get home. The crate your box is in it reuseable and must be returned each week.

Will the weights of veggies in my box be exact?

The weights in our sample box are estimates. Unfortunately potatoes and pumpkins don’t grow in exact kilo sizes! We’ll set a lower size limit and hit as close as we can without cutting up large items.

What if I don’t like something in my box?

We understand not everyone likes every vegetable, but unfortunately we’re not able to customise every box every week. Instead, at the farm gate each Saturday we’ll have a swap box with a few spare items that you can switch for an unwanted broccoli or beetroot!

I don’t want to send excess veg to landfill: your boxes are too big!

We love veg, and we hope you do too. The more you eat the better for your health, but we do understand that waste happens. If you can’t eat something in your box or it goes a bit manky then you’re welcome to bring it back to Heritage Farm for our community compost.
