Q) How does the mixed box work?
Each week we choose a selection of fresh organic fruits and vegetables that are currently in season. Every Monday our website is updated and you can view which fruits and vegetables are in the week's mixed boxes. Each week we try to give you a variety of fruit and vegetables, so you don't have an excess of the previous week's items and also to let you try a variety of produce. Currently there are three popular size choices - the $40, $50 and $60 mixed boxes.
The $40 mixed box contains approximately 16 fruits and vegetables, which is ideal for one person or for small families (2 to 3 people).
The $50 mixed box contains approximately 20 fruits and vegetables, which is ideal for a medium size family (3 to 4 people).
The $60 mixed box contains approximately 24 fruits and vegetables, which is ideal for a larger size family (4+ people).
Please note that items in the boxes may change throughout the week and substitution may occur due to the availability of fresh organic produce. Sometimes stock is limited as with organics there are not the large quantities that you would normally find with conventional foods. We take every step to ensure that this is not a frequent occurrence. If you are on a strict diet or have food allergies and do not want any substitution, we mark your file as such and we increase the quantities of the foods you can eat and remember you can swap items in and out of the boxes to accommodate your particular likes and dislikes.
The advantage of these boxes is that you know exactly how much you are spending. Some of our customers like surprises so they have arranged for us to automatically send them a mixed box every week or fortnight - they just tell us the items that their household don't eat and we do the rest.
Q) Do I only have the choice of the $40, $50 or $60 mixed boxes?
No. The $40.00 box is the minimum size box you can purchase but you can request larger size boxes to the value of your choice.
Q) I only want a fruit or vegetable box, is this possible?
Yes. We can customise your $40, $50 or $60 mixed box to contain only fruit or vegetables to your liking, just let us know in the comments section when ordering online, or calls us on 1300 88 11 61.
Q) What if there are fruits and vegetables I don't like in my box or I already have an abundance of a particular item?
Don't worry - you can customise your box to suit your needs. Just let us know in the comments section when ordering online, or calls us on 1300 88 11 61.
Q) Can I add items to my mixed box?
Yes. You can add as much fruit, vegetables or grocery items as you wish. There are no restrictions to the amount you purchase. Many of our customers like to add juices, eggs or even a chicken to their order.
