Hello 2019!

The ocean has settled out here in Victoria, but that has not stopped the buzz around us and our successful year in 2018.  Can you believe we only launched our Monthly Meat Club in March? It was a hectic time, with over 1,000 boxes coming through within the first few months.  Following a busy summer of events (hello VegFest, we're looking at you!), celebrating our first anniversary, and having a fall full of stuffed...
