As life has slowly returned to the new normal and our stall is fully functioning again and our busy schedules are kicking in — alas our free local delivery from Winton to Wallacetown and everywhere in between will be ceasing.
You are still able to get your orders delivered in Winton and Wallacetown and along the state highways via the courier service – but with an $8 charge/box. If you still need assistance with deliveries in our local area but are not on a courier route – please email or message us regarding this as we can still assist. If there is still demand for deliveries to Hedgehope we will do them only on a Friday afternoon.
Also, we now have Bluff Couriers doing deliveries all the way up through from Lumsden to Queenstown and all the way down through Cromwell, Alexandra, Roxburgh, Raes Junction, Tapanui and back through Gore – all in the same day for only $8/20 kg box – so if you live in the Central Otago area a great new opportunity for you has opened.
We are still waiting for the Farmers Market to begin again.
Thank you so much for supporting our local business during this time and hope to still be of assistance to you all — whether by our online service or face-to-face in our stall.
You will see a few new changes with our website as we move into the new normal.
We will have our credit card system back up and running inside the ordering system so you will be able to pay directly through it, or via internet banking. You will no longer have to wait for the friendly phone call from Kathy. 😊
Due to more automation of the system – please use the address you wish your vegies to be delivered to as your shipping address – even if it is a drop off point! This is very important!!
We have hopefully streamlined the freight routes – but we will determine which is the best courier for your order ultimately in the end with your shipping address provided. If you definitely want a company – just mention in comments.
Great news – we now have AZAP couriers back on deck to get deliveries back up through to Kingston and beyond.
We are looking to get the stall up and running during the week – with contactless systems in place.
Thank you all for your patience and understanding during this strange season we have all found ourselves in and we look forward to continuing to supply you with our fantastic produce – either by freight or back through the stall.

Because of reduced courier services, we are now unable to deliver produce north of Lumsden.
Our shipping routes have also changed. Please see our shipping page for more.
The couriers will stop at a drop-off point in small towns which are on the direct route to bigger centres, such as a local garage or shop. Please use that as your delivery address if you do not live on the state highway.
