Our produce is harvested directly on our Local Farmer Network and hand packed by our Certified Organic packers, who are trained to identify pests instead of the use of chemical baths and waxes. This has an inherent labour cost, because everything in your delivery must be physically inspected (like we all do in a store) by one of our family members.
Once your Produce crate is packed in our purpose build cold packing shed, an SMS is sent to you with an Estimate Time of Delivery (ETD) and a link to the live van tracking system that you can follow on the day of your delivery. Your order is then carefully transported via our temperature controlled refrigerated vans to your door and you can follow your delivery in Realtime via the link provided in the SMS. Upon delivery a second SMS is sent with a photo for Proof Of Delivery (POD) , including the time, date and location so you can safely know your Farm Drop has arrived, even if you just ducked out for a quick coffee.
We value our packing and delivery systems and aim to provide the best possible service to keep those Certified Organic fruit, veggie & meat Packs Farm Fresh to your door - and this comes at a nominal fee, which you'll see at the checkout on your Farm Gate account!
