Testimonials


“As a family, we like not having to give business to multi nationals and being able to support local growers. We hardly go to the supermarket at all now and like knowing our veggies don't have pesticides.”      The Gratton family

“I love coming to pick up my weekly box at Clove because of all the fantastic people I meet. I also appreciate the diversity and quality of the produce. I like that my week is organised in the sense of what I need to cook because I'm very disorganised and my life is chaotic."              Robert

"I’ve been a part of Out of the Box since the early days – we were going to meetings down the river and making hummus and food to share, and visualising how we wanted our idea to improve the earth, the soil, and life for the farmers. For me, seeing it grow from being an idea, to people coming and picking up their box and me crossing their name off the list, it’s like a catch up with all these beautiful people who all have like-minded ideas, who want to support small-scale regenerative farmers, they love Mildura, and they love the food that grows here. Making food and knowing exactly who’s grown it is so special."            Morgan, volunteer

“I love buying food that’s just recently been picked, I love food that’s as fresh as you can get it, when it’s not coming from your own backyard. I love the fact that it’s easy, you have made it so easy to just come and collect a box of food that’s amazing. Its making me think differently about cooking, I like to experiment I like to use things I wouldn’t normally buy, and I think that’s really exciting to be learning about better and interesting ways to use the produce. And if you don’t get to use it for a few days and leave it in the fridge, its still fresh because it’s come so quickly to you!”   Judi

"I'm excited by Out of the Box because it provides cost-effective seasonal, local and largely organic food – the keynote for family health. I've been in clinical health care for 30 years and have watched a startling increase in digestive complaints and food intolerances across all ages. I'm all for making our local food networks a centre of community strength. I want to know and support my farmers through the good harvests and the not so good. Governments and international markets don't care about thriving communities and healthy land. I'm strongly against glyphosate and chemical use in food. That's a no-brainer for good health. There's so much we can do to be healthy and happy. The veggie box is a part of this. And yay to all the volunteers and workers who make this happen. So appreciated."  Andrea

“It’s easy to get chemical-free veggies, really cheaply, and it’s just convenient. I really like that there’s not much rubbish afterwards, that’s a huge thing for us, the minimal packaging. Our family were part of the trial and then signed up again when it re-started. Now we are not swapping out as much because we are learning to use the different fruits and veggies. It makes you get more creative with your cooking. And it’s got to be a bit healthier, eating different things rather than same thing each week. And it’s good for the kids too, to learn what does it mean to be in season, or out of season, and what do we grow here.“       The Hoye family

"It’s encouraging me to eat more healthy to be quite truthful, because I have to eat what’s in this box and I have to eat within the week, so it’s been making me eat better, and trying to research recipes and ways to cook the things I wouldn’t normally buy. Obviously the quality, and knowing its fresh, and helping local producers, it’s just great."       Kerry

“Well Out of the Box, it’s just great, it’s like from all farms around Mildura, and it grows the freshest fruit and veg ever, and they’re really good!”   Eleanor, 7 years old

“I love that it's fresh, local and organic. Also that I get things in the boxes that I’ve never seen before and the kids love it. My son loved the African Horned Cucumber so much last week and can't wait for the next one.” Rian

“I love Out of the Box because someone else chooses for me and I don't have to think about what I’m shopping for! I’m also all about supporting local, so it's a perfect fit.” Laura

“It's like getting a present every week, I can't wait to see what's in it!”        Kate

“I love Out of the Box because it inspires my creativity and I can't wait to get home and see what's in my box each week to create dinner.”             Kim

“I love being part of Out of the Box and have developed my cooking around the box ingredients. It's made me more aware as well of what's being grown in our region."    Lesley
