Eating in season has an endless number of benefits – the most notable to your health, to the environment and to your hip pocket. Eating what is in season locally means you are getting the optimum nutritional benefits from your food – instead of travelling for days or being stored for 10 months in cold storage – our farm direct produce is picked and lands in store the very next day. Less food miles means a significant reduction in carbon emissions and means you are not paying for your orange to travel 5,000km – meaning it costs you far less.
The list below should only be used as an indication of what is in season. There are endless numbers of environmental factors including things such as pests and weather that effect whether our local farmers have an abundance one week, and none the next. Yet another reason you should buy organic – our farmers do the hard yards to bring your family highly nutritious food each and every week.
