What types of boxes do you have and how much are they?

Our $65 mixed fruit & veg box is a ‘family sized box’ and includes 1 litre of fresh orange juice, bread of the week (changes fortnightly) & natural yoghurt with fruit coulis.

Our $45 mixed box is smaller in size to our $65 box and is suitable for a single/ couple. It DOES NOT have any juice, bread or yoghurt.

Our $45 FRUIT ONLY box is packed with seasonal fruit only and is perfect for families that love their fresh fruit. We have 4-6 additional varieties of fruit in this box that do not feature in our mixed boxes.

Our $45 SALAD/ VEG ONLY box is packed with seasonal salad items & vegetables only and is perfect for families that love their fresh salads/ veggies. We have 4-6 additional varieties of salad/ veg in this box that do not feature in our mixed boxes.

How many people would the box be suitable for?

Our $65 mixed box is large and we suggest it suits a family of 4 for the week.

Our $45 mixed box is suitable for a single/ couple for the week.

Our $45 FRUIT ONLY and $45 SALAD/ VEG ONLY boxes are perfect extra boxes to compliment your existing order or for larger families that enjoy their fresh produce.

NB: Appetites and times that you are home for meals may vary but as a guide we have found this is accurate

What’s in the box?

The contents of the box will vary slightly each week due to seasonal changes and quality at the markets on the day. As a guide the staples will be:

Zucchini, Lettuce, Cucumber, Capsicum, Carrots, Onions, Sweet Potato, Potato, Pumpkin, Broccoli, Tomato, Punnet Tomato, Mushrooms, Pineapple, Watermelon, Bananas, Apples, Oranges, Peaches, Pears, Melons & Stone Fruits (when in season). We also add 1 Litre Freshly Squeezed OJ, Natural Yoghurt (with a fruit topping on the side) and Bread (Turkish/ Lebanese Wraps/ Sourdough for example). This will vary slightly with other market specials as they arise week to week. For example, mangoes, melons, celery, plums, baby spinach, spinach, corn, strawberries, squash, cauliflower, grapes may be used instead of some other items if in season. QUALITY of produce on the day is our priority.

What is Box 4 a Buck?

This is an initiative we launched in April 2019 where clients can voluntarily donate a dollar (or more) to their order. All funds raised will cover the cost of a $45 mixed box to be delivered to a local family in need. For this initiative to be viable weekly, we need monetary donations AND nominations of needy Central Coast based families. Please message us privately via our FB page if you would like to donate funds or nominate a recipient.

Where do your eggs come from?

We source our eggs from Lake Macquarie Free Range Eggs located in Cooranbong. With ‘A Class’ Certification from NSW Food Authority, we offer free range, one dozen 800gm eggs for $7 as an optional extra to the boxes. Eggs are delivered to us fresh weekly.

Can I customise my box?
The produce is purchased and hand packed in bulk which allows us to offer a large variety of produce at an affordable price point. If there are foods you don’t eat, please let us know so we can exclude them from your box and replace with those you do enjoy. You can also ‘customise’ your box via our website by adding additional items that your family enjoys. Click ‘Order Now’ to select additional items.
Where does the juice come from?
The juice is supplied by our juice partner East Coast Juices from Kulnura on the Central Coast. The label on the bottle will confirm the contents.
What’s in the yoghurt?
The yoghurt is 100% milk and culture added. Best consumed in 5-7 days.
Are there any ‘lock-in contracts’?
No. You can order once, order weekly or fortnightly. Just let us know and we can make a note in our system and remind you as required of your order and to make payment.
How do I pay?
When ordering via our website, you can pay by Direct Deposit to our bank account no later than close of business Wednesday. Banking details are provided when your order is confirmed. Alternatively, you can order online and pay with your debit/ credit card.

Where does the produce come from?
The produce is sourced from the Sydney Markets. We pride ourselves that our produce is from local and Australian farmers ONLY.
Is the produce organic?
Our priority is to offer produce that is affordable and represents value for money for Central Coast families. For this reason the produce is not organic.
Do you recycle the boxes?
Yes, we ask you to leave your box out for collection with your next delivery.
Do you offer any rewards/ incentives for your clients?
Yes, we offer $10 off your $65 box when you refer a friend and they order. Ask your friend to mention your name when they order. There is no limit to the number of people you can refer, however there is a maximum of $10 off your $65 box each week. That is, you will pay $55, not $65 when a friend has also ordered.

Yours in quality and freshness! Russell & Cathy
