For most people in Australia there are two places where the majority of food are purchased. Coles and Woolworths. Sure there are a few other places but even blind Freddy can see this powerful duopoly has the food market well and truly cornered.
For those people in Melbourne that are fed up but want to be well fed, I offer you our veg boxes as an alternative. They’re full of fresh picked organic produce. Its an alternative option if you wish not to support major corporations. You instead are supporting Farmer Rod who is close to retirement. You’re supporting my family by providing as with income. Your supporting your body by fuelling it with real food. And you’re supporting the ideals of a better world, where we eat food grown close to our city, food thats grown organically and naturally. The veg box system is very simple. You order online, it gets picked and delivered to four drop off points in Melbourne, you then take it home, wash it and eat it.
I know you’re out there.
I know you give a shit about good food. I appreciate your love but we need your support. Please tell your mum, your dad, your brothers and sisters, your friends and enemies and your local school crossing lady. Use the most powerful tool you have, social media. Spread the word. Tell them about this food option.
We can only continue to deliver this alternative of non duopoly food with your support. Two weeks ago I delivered the boxes to just over 20 families. I’ can’t continue to operate on such low numbers, it will barley cover van hire and fuel to the city. Please help us.
The veg boxes contain food grown in the rich red volcanic soil of the central highlands. Its the beginning of the high growing season so even though there is good variety on the boxes now, it will improve as the season continues. You will currently find our boxes will contain a mix of, zucchini, broccoli, carrot, cucumber, cabbage, cauliflower, potato, kale, chard, lettuce, turnip, parsnip, beetroot, and soon to be included corn, tomato, pumpkin and fruit such as apples, pears and plums (pending availability). The retail price is $55 which covers delivery and overheads and staff payment. Its good value for a box of certified organic vegetables.
