This is what Alloway farmer Darren Pratt and his family are passionate about.

The family run business, RBS Produce - named after the family's children Rebecca, Ben and Sam, have taken to social media to spread the word of the freshest veggies boxes around.

The boxes have about 11 different farm fresh fruit and vegetable in each box and come at a cost of $20.

Mr Pratt said his biggest thing was making sure people had the option to buy fresh and eat fresh.

The father-of-three said he had been in the farming business for several years and started selling the produce boxes online six months ago.

"We sell about 80 boxes a week and have a lot of repeat customers," he said.

"There is about 11 items in each box and range from silver beet or kale, to broccoli, bananas and pumpkin.

"There are standard boxes or people can substitute items for others."

He said most of the produce was picked from the family farm on Thursday, but some items had come from other local farms as they didn't grow everything.

"We source as much as possible from locals, like the tomatoes from Barbera Farms, there are things like apple which aren't grown in the region but if it is we can include it," Mr Pratt.

He said the new venture kept the family busy but they were excited to spread the freshness around the town.
