Yippee! The hungry gap has passed and our business restructuring is complete, and we are now back to doing what we love best- delivering you the freshest, tastiest locally-grown organic produce you can find anywhere in Adelaide!
We are now also offering HOME DELIVERY to some areas around Adelaide. If home delivery suits you better, please email us your inquiry and suburb and we will contact you.
Working Bee 10 am onwards

After weeks of trialing our new software and logistics, we have opened our farm gate for business! Current host locations can be found here.
Welcome to Jupiter Creek Farm CSA!
Today we sent out our first round of offers to those people who had registered their interest in subscribing! After two weeks of deliveries to just our host locations to check our systems, thanking the farm goddess we did!, ironing out the glitches and learning our new software system we have turned our system over to the public! As of next week we deliver to our PUP hosts and their subscribers. We will be taking people off the list in large batches each week and when the last batch is contacted we will open up our online system to everyone. This staged release serves as insulation against chaos and explosions of the messy kind!. Thank you all for your patience and support in this process. Keep your eye on the website for a release date!
Well, we have been very busy here on the farm these last few months. The flush of weeds that Spring brings, and Summer watering promotes, is enough to drive you crazy. Many a day of couch weeding was finished with slightly hytsterical rants and crazy comments. We all went just a little nuts! The slight pause in the farm tasks and the new crops that were our reward meant we could finally concentrate on developing the box scheme and we have begun the process of contacting our PUPs ready for a pilot scheme over the next two weeks. Following this pilot period we will open up our ordering to the big wide world of metro Adelaide. Our ordering system has been developed for CSA and should prove useful for PUP selection, waitlisting and ease of ordering! We cant wait to start delivering our boxes of produce to you all! If anyone is interested in helping out (or just taking charge! lol) of our weekly newsletter we’d love to hear from you!
Please bear with us as we get our new site up to scratch in preparation for our launch. Rolled back to 7 Feb 2011.
Its getting exciting up here!
Welcome to Jupiter Creek Farm, Adelaide’s only CSA. This exciting local food initiative is the culmination of years of work by its partners and founders, in both food distribution and farming. Our partners are second generation organic farmers who have been growing produce for local restaurants and farmers markets for over 10 years, an experienced biodynamic market gardener and local food systems expert and a motley crew of local passionate ethicureans and locavores with years of experience in organic food production and distribution, food activism and community engagement in both Adelaide, Europe and California. Jupiter Creek Farm CSA is an exciting new step in the alternative food production and distribution system in Adelaide.
Located at Chapel Hill (Echunga) in the picturesque Adelaide Hills, Jupiter Creek Farm is surrounded by the local history of the Jupiter Creek gold fields and is a part of the Adelaide Hills heritage region. We farm ‘unconventionally’ and are in the process of applying for organic certification. We welcome anyone on-farm in this interim certification process to see for yourself our transparent practices.
The team at Jupiter Creek Farm welcome you to join our exciting new on-farm venture . If you are interested in becoming a member of our CSA fruit and vege box scheme to provide you and your family with fresh, farm picked local,organic produce, you can sign up from January 31, 2012.
