Delivery Service - they offer a delivery service to the inner, western and northern suburbs of Melbourne. The most popular option is the seasonal fruit & vegetable boxes they put together for people where you get the health & financial benefits of eating produce that is actually in season! Seasonal boxes are available for $25, $35 or $45 and are extremely good value for money.

You can get the boxes on a casual or regular (weekly/fortnightly) basis and can tailor-make them to specifications. There is a $5.50 handling and delivery fee and the minimum order is $25.

Buy in bulk & save - they provide substantial discounts for bulk purchases. Call for more details on the amounts required and their relevant prices.

Low Income Discount - Grasslands offers a 10% discount on retail purchases to low income earners (people earning less than $300 per week) who come into the shop.
