What's in a weekly box?
Boxes are crafted with 5-10 organically grown veggies picked and packed fresh for your pick up or delivery. You purchase for a subscription period with nature determining what is ripe for your box.
An example: Gourmet baby salad mix, carrots, coriander, bok choy, zucchini, kale, spring onions.
Value outside the box
Farming has risks. Box customers are champions of organic agriculture, food and local business. You're part of eating a different story. Your support over a long period gives me stability to get on with planting and growing knowing I've got tummies ready to feed from abundant ripe harvest. This system produces a lot less waste too.
Veg box farming is also known as Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). If we get a great yield from our urban farming, you receive some overflow but 40+ degree days mean our goods are at risk, and instead of the farmer taking all this risk, we all share the balance. The model means the farmers are not isolated by natural outlying variables we can't plan for. In my experience, the customers often score and the farmer is happy to be supported by the community. At Spoke & Spade, I’m working hard to capture your support and translate it to an abundance of goods returned.
I’m thankful to those who look & see problems with our conventional agricultural story in Melbourne and want to be a part of new ways of doing food, community and being agents of change to the environmental and social issues presented to us.

We prioritise crops that are easy to use in the kitchen and super tasty. Households with 2+ who eat their recommended portion of veggies each day are able finish a box before the week runs out, and many households of 3 + also find it a good foundation for many meals in the week. We’re not trying to provide everything, we’re a small farm growing regular ‘fresh tastes and is best’ for your plate which is also local food grown with organic principles.
Any questions, email or call me. Easy.
