Handling Times

We offer same day fulfilment before 10am for all items except for our Family Farms and Sun Shelves.



We understand many of our products are bought as gifts and we do our best to make sure that our packaging is neat and sustainable, but also robust to handle any rough rides across our massive continent.

The vast majority of our products are packed in cardboard boxes or compostable biobags. If you do receive any products packed in single use plastic - please rest assured that this has been upcycled from our suppliers who we have low order volumes with and are therefore unable to dictate a zero plastic policy with. We use minimal plastic and are working toward zero waste. For more on what we're doing to minimise our envionmental impact, please visit our blog post on gathera and the environment.
