We love you, goodbye.

From the team at Aussie Farmers Direct, thankyou for your support, we love you all, and we are so sorry to be going away.

Eat well, love your family, look after your friends. Remember that dreams are fragile, and we all need each other.

We are sad to announce that Aussie Farmers Direct is closing its operations today.

After 13 years of working with many of Australia’s great farmers and delivering their fresh produce to Australian families, it is hugely disappointing that is has come to this. We are simply no longer able to compete against the domination of the major two supermarkets and the influx of cheap imported produce.

Aussie Farmers Direct started as one small milk run delivering 100 bottles a week. Over the years we grew to be a full-service grocer to thousands of customers across Australia. We have worked with hundreds of farmers and local suppliers over the years, and we are proud to have played our part in getting farmers and Australian households a fair deal. With the support of our customers, we took a stand on many industry issues including fair milk prices, free range eggs and supporting farming communities through the tough times including droughts, floods and financial hardship. We have also enjoyed celebrating our Australian farmers commitment to quality, hard work and resilience.

Unfortunately, we will be unable to deliver any future orders to our wonderful customers. No one will be charged for these orders. Any customer who was scheduled to have a delivery on the afternoon of Monday 5th March and has been charged for this order will have their order refunded shortly.

We would like to thank all our loyal customers, farmers, suppliers, franchisees, and staff for their support over the past 13 years.
