Freshline Organics grows and supplies a wide range of certified organic fruit and vegetables "from paddock to plate" through our home delivery service right across Perth and our stalls at three weekly Farmers' Markets.
Certified organic produce: Choose from one of our seasonal organic boxes (from $50) or place a customised organic order (from $50)
Conventional produce: Delivery of Seasonal conventional boxes (from $45) will commence straight after Easter: Order via our 'Seasonal Boxes page'
Delivery day (mostly Tue-Thu) depends on suburb and we will advise you after you place your first order.
Delivery area and fees: We deliver to Perth residential addresses between Ocean Reef and Cockburn, with a handling & delivery fee of $15 for most areas.For an individual order of $200 or more, delivery is free.
Tip for half-price home delivery: enlist a friend, have both orders delivered to the same address and share the delivery fee so you will each pay half the "normal" delivery fee.
Delivery etiquette: we will leave your order outside your front door and we will alert you to its arrival; it is your responsibility to ensure we have access your property; if we cannot gain access your order will be left outside the gate.
Payment: you will not be asked for your credit card details at the time your order; we will contact you after we receive your first order to arrange payment

German-born Werner Fritsch moved to Australia over 30 years ago.
Without prior farming experience, he decided to start his own organic farm and practiced 'learning by doing'.
Besides growing certified organics veggies on the farm near Serpentine during the week, he started home deliveries in 2000, under the business name Freshline Organics
In addition you can buy his vegetables - and other certified organic produce - currently at two different markets on the weekend (see above).
You will usually see him with a smile on his face and his faithful 'right hand, the adorable Mischka, by his side.
The Freshline Organics 40 acre farm is situated near Serpentine, about 80km south-east of the Western Australian capital city of Perth.
Our farm features a landscape of rolling hills with layers of untouched bushland, a spring-fed dam and about five acres of vegetables.
In the 1980s the property was a commercial stone fruit orchard.
Upon purchasing it in 1992, we began the organic cultivation of vegetables and fruit and have been certified with Australian Certified Organic since 1993 (certification number 6048A).
FRESH PRODUCTS PROCESS
Our farming approach and processes are aligned with the seasons, individual growth cycles and -of course - with the regulations set for organic farmers certified by ACO Australia.
Our aim is to minimise the use of synthetic inputs, be they fertilisers, pesticides or herbicides.
Synthetic fertilisers generally make the plants grow faster (by absorbing more water), giving them less time in the soil ; this means, the plant absorbs fewer minerals and nutrients from the soil, than those grown organically over a longer period of time.
With many fruits and vegetables this is reflected in the taste, i.e. they have more 'flavour' than the 'force-fed' conventionally grown vegetables and fruit.
In addition, on our farm everything is hand-picked which allows us to harvest the vegetables in their prime, rather than prematurely as is often the case when machine-picked.
Our combination of organic farming and supplying directly to the end consumer has placed Freshline Organics in the unique position to guarantee extra-fresh produce: most of the produce we grow is picked and delivered within 48 hours.
To ensure our customers can select from a wide range of certified organic fruits and vegetables, we supplement our ownproduce with fruit and vegetables from other certified organic farms who work and adhere to the same strict standards as we do.
