:D You Can Receive Fresh Organic Produce, Direct From Your Farm :D
We only offer our harvest to households like yours. Working directly with you, without the intermediary of stores or wholesalers, gives us the opportunity to provide the freshest quality and the most competitive organic prices. This system is known as Subscription Farming, Community Supported Agriculture, or, most simply, a CSA.

This Is How It Works:
With a preseason payment, you can purchase a "share" of our summer's harvest. You then receive a weekly box of our freshest, seasonal produce during the course of our twenty week harvest season, from mid-October to late-February. Further, you may choose to extend the season with a Winter Share - 10 additional boxes of vegetables to be delivered in March April & May.
A Shared Commitment:
When you sign up, you dedicate yourself to being our customer for the year, thus providing us a secure market -- a welcome measure of certainty in the fickle world of farming! We, in turn, dedicate ourselves to being your farmers, providing you with a varied, nutritious vegetable diet.

Shared Risk; Shared Reward
We do our very best to bring you a beautiful and bountiful box each week, but since our boss, Nature, provides no guarantees -- we can't offer any either. One of the premises of a Community Supported Agriculture program is that the shareholder shares, through the veggies, the farmers' experience of nature's mischief (and her blessings).
How Does Our Garden Grow?
In 2000, we began raising vegetables on our land according to Organic principles. Beyond meeting the minimum requirements of using no chemicals -- which is simply avoiding a negative -- we create a positive: soils and plants with rip-roaring health!
At What Price?
In 2008/9, for 20 weeks from mid October to late February you receive a bumper box of fresh, seasonal organic vegetables at a cost of (Deleted - please enqure). Our extended winter season share of a further 10 boxes in March, April and May is an additional (Deleted - please enqure).
Alternate payment Plans
If you wish to divide the payment, please write out 2 cheques, each covering half the total. Date one cheque for today; post date the 2nd cheque for any date up until three months from the first cheque. Send both cheques with your sign up. We won’t deposit the 2nd cheque until its date. :D

Thanks to community involvement we are happy to announce that we have commitment from enough customers to continue this project with great optimism. Our first bonus batch of vegies were collected this Saturday and all anticipate a great season after recent rains.

We have just finished an inventry of current plantings and projections on this rainy day looking forward to a bumper harvest through out this season.

Thinning the broad beans, sowing brassica's, etc.. fertilising the blueberries and hazelnuts - and general on going composting.

Thanks again to all those who feel it's important to know where your food comes from.

You are what you do. :mrgreen:

Now we are hearing about similar such projects happening throughout Tasmania also we feel so please that our efforts have been met with encouragement and commitment by our local community.

This week share holders recieved a bumper harvest of 22 different vegies :lol:

Our production at this time of year means that we can share the LOVE - extras like Apples, Pears, Honey, Blueberries and tom toms etc... :P

Coffee is very popular on collection day ( fair trade Organic Papuan or East Timor ) and the group is also changing as people's needs change we feel confident that this model is a good one to follow on with providing a much needed community social event and time to talk and share too. Great to have visits from past share holders as well as new ones, or just people interested in how we grow so much food from a small holding.

We are happy to share.

John.

Entering our fourth year producing yummy veggies for a wonderfully supportive community. This year's summer has provided us with 70kg of honey and the 'vacola' kit has been busy bottleing. The fruit trees we planted has bourne well with prune plum, golden guage, green guage and our collection of bottles from opp shops are now proudly standing on the shop shelf with a miriad of colour.

With a great team of wwoofers on board this year to help with the Blueberry harvest our workload has increased to 190 kg.

To be sustainable on a small property is continuing to be an interesting and fulfilling journey.

Our work as good 'consumers' has dropped off recently as yummy produce from the garden has filled the table and all our tummies.

Potatoes are my favourite this year as we have had ample rain and good timing with it too.

To our loyal coustomers a big THANK YOU for keeping up the sharing in 2011.
John.
