Vege Box

Hello Canberra,

Some of you already know me. I’m James, founder of MetroFarms Pty Limited (MetroFarms), a new Canberra-based company.

MetroFarms will be Canberra’s new local farm and we seek to set a new standard for sustainable farming in Australia.

If vegetable flavour and nutrition matter to you and your families, you want vegetables to be their absolute freshest and you want a true local alternative to major supermarket vegetables farmed who knows where, then speak up now!

In the near future, MetroFarms will farm, package and deliver the freshest vegetables direct to your door. But first, we need to start our proof of concept operations and trial our vegetable offerings and delivery services with real customers.

Why choose MetroFarms?
– We will farm our vegetables under controlled conditions all year round
– Our standard for fresh vegetables: Harvest to your home in 3 hours, all grown in Canberra
– Our farming methods are pesticide free and sustainable

To participate in the market trial at proof of concept stage, you must:
– Live in Canberra or a surrounding suburb
– Be willing to leave feedback on vegetable selection, quality and convenience
– Like the idea of truly fresh and tasty vegetables delivered direct to your door today!

RiotACT’s Jazz sits on Metrofarms Advisory board

Is this somehow linked to the NDIS?

No, the vegetable delivery you are thinking of is carried out by the Mullies, sadly.

Good idea where about,s in Canberra are these veggies being grown?

why, you wanna go at it with a whipper snipper?

Well, no self-respecting northsider would ever eat an inferior southside carrot, would they?

That’s because it’s already jammed up their arse.

what would you get in a box this week? im interested, any big beautiful red Capsicum like the picture? I don’t think you can grow a wide enough variety through the winter to make this work. Also 3 hours from pick to delivery will only work if you making less than 10 deliveries or have massive numbers of delivery drivers.

Good luck with it, Im sure you will be able to sell most Canberrans produce fresh from Flemington markets, for a few years before they figure it out. People manage to do it at the farmers Markets every weekend

Thanks for the comment.

We think we can pull it off without supplying produce from the Flemington markets 😉 As for the rest, anyone who knows me will tell you I don’t shy away from a challenge…

We are looking to start growing this winter and start delivering our veggies in the spring. We also intend to grow a wide vegetable selection all through the year.



Good Luck James.According to the latest health information one can extend their life by eating a mostly vego diet, Hope you grow some Kale.
