Week #9 - deliveries from 4-6 March 2022 (order by midnight Wednesday)
How have you weathered the storm? Our hearts are breaking today for all those who have lost their lives, their homes, their farms, their businesses and all their belongings in these floods.
Many of our farmers have been impacted including our Mushroom Farmer at Woodford, our Cabbage and Kale Farmers at Laidley and our Garlic Farmer at Gatton to name a few.
Thankfully Farmer Kel's place near Woodford is ok, as is Farmer Ash at Mt Cotton, but many seedlings and other crops have been lost because of the rain and we will see the impact of this carry through over the coming month.
Highways both north and south are blocked making it difficult for all our other farmers to get their produce to us and at the moment, we can't even get to our warehouse as so many roads around Rocklea are blocked.
The good news is our warehouse hasn't gone under water - phew!
CHANGE TO DELIVERY DAYS - This week only
To cope with all this, and allow time for roads to clear and produce to arrive, we're pushing back all our deliveries by 1 day this week. So if you usually get your order on Thursday, it'll be Friday this week, Friday will be Saturday and Saturday will be Sunday.
Orders will be open till Midnight WEDNESDAY, giving you extra time to order this week.
Due to all the rain and flooding, a lot of produce we usually stock is not available this week including fresh herbs, spinach, rocket, mushrooms and kale to name a few items.
The good new is we still have more than 50 different varieties of produce and loads of grocery items for you including organic milk, eggs, bread, honey and everything else you need for super healthy meals at home.
We've also added some yummy new Easter products and GOOD FISH. We're really excited to add sustainably sourced fish to our grocery range for you.
To everyone who is cleaning up today or still waiting to gain access to their home, business, farm - we send you so much love. If we can be of any help please reach out. We have a highly engaged Facebook Group (our Farmacy Family) who are always willing to help out with donations for those in need.
