Win 1 of 3 Ecofy Organic Seasonal Fruit & Vegetable Boxes!

Now I know what you might say. Organic is expensive and looks like it fell off the back of a truck and was then run over. Not so. The produce I received looked exactly like conventional produce. I received a sample of the $31.50 box and it contained the following certified organic produce:

  • 1 x baby cos lettuce

  • 1 x bag of mushrooms

  • 1/2 pineapple

  • 1x bunch grapes

  • bunch of coriander

  • bunch of green beans

  • head of broccoli

  • 3 onions

  • 2 corn cobs

  • 4 potatoes

  • 4 bananas

  • 3 carrots

  • 2 zucchini

  • 3 yellow nectarines

  • 2 yellow peaches

  • 2 white nectarines

  • Plus some extras not usually included in the box but you can order separately including an additional Sonoma sourdough bread loaf, Organic India Tulsi Pomegranate Green tea and some live sunflower sprouts. I felt so Bree Van Der Kamp with these on my windowsill! I simply snipped them and popped them in salads.

With Ecofy, you can specify which items that you want or not. Sometimes we want to cook with something specific or sometimes you just love to eat an item. Also as you may know, certain fruit and vegetables have higher pesticide rates than others (e.g. apples and potatoes are particularly high) and some people choose to just switch to buying those items as organic - with Ecofy you can just order what you need. The key is to have fresh, organic produce and no wastage.

Their boxes, which are delivered on Thursdays, also contain at least 50% fruit whereas other companies pack more vegetables as they are inexpensive. Or if you dearly love fruit, you can order a fruit only box. The fruit I tried was superb-the nectarines that I had were sweet and juicy and I ended up eating all three of them on the first night as well as all of the grapes*. They also give new customers two stay fresh bags which help to preserve your produce longer (which can be washed and reused for up to 6 months). Again the less waste the better. The organic farmers work hard to grow their produce and the last thing you want is for it to be thrown out!
