With the cancellation of our Farmer's market in Bundoora Park on the First Saturday of the month due to Covid-19 restrictions, many fruit and vegetable growers are struggling to sell their stock.
One such person is Founding member of Bundoora Rotary Club, Peter Dale whose family started Rieshieck Orchards in Doncaster over 100 years ago. In the 1960's the orchards were moved to their current location in Gruyere in the Yarra Valley.
Dale's daughter Georgia also has a home delivery service supplying apples, pears and strawberries. Neighbouring farms are supplying Heritage tomatoes, Zucchini and Brussel Sprouts. Longtime friends at Coolibah Herbs are supplying organic leaf vegetables.
Before Covid-19, they had a large following for their stock at Bundoora and Hurstbridge markets and it would be good to supply our loyal customers once again by contacting Georgia on her Facebook page to organise deliveries to our area depending on the size of the order.
Her facebook page is Orchard2u.
