What makes Farmhouse Direct so different from other online food delivery services?
Farmhouse Direct eliminates the middleman. When you buy something on Farmhouse Direct you are actually purchasing directly from the Farmer/Producer. Just like a physical farmers’ market, the farmer sets up their stall and sets their product prices, you purchase directly from the farmer, your money goes directly to the farmer and then the farmer packages and posts your products direct to you. Keep in mind that you will receive a package from each farmer you order from and that could be from anywhere in Australia.
Why have I only received part of my order?
Just like a physical farmers’ market, when you shop at Farmhouse Direct you’re buying directly from each producer, the person directly involved with growing and making the goods. Therefore, when you place an order with more than one producer on Farmhouse Direct, you will receive a package in the post from each producer accordingly.
How can I get in touch with a producer?
Contacting a producer is easy - Each product page has a ‘Contact Producer’ button on the top right. Simply click on the button, write your message and send. You can check your responses by clicking on the ‘My Profile’ button in the top right corner of the page and accessing the ‘My Messages’ tab.

Can I modify my order after I have checked-out?

How do I return an item from my order?

Also, due to the nature of some perishable products they are not suitable to ship under different conditions. All of our producers ship to you at a time when their product is at peak freshness to ensure this you might find that they only send their products at particular times of the week. Please take a note of their “Stall Policy” and “Delivery & Order Info” box on product pages to check any restrictions.
