Farmhouse Direct lets you score your produce straight from the source
By the time you’ve arrived home and plonked your groceries in the kitchen, your goods have probably passed through several pairs of hands. While this is just a fact of our grocery-buying lives, wouldn’t it be nicer if we could cut out the middleman entirely? Farmhouse Direct can help you with that. If you didn’t catch it in the name, Farmhouse Direct allows you to get your fruit, vegetables and other goods from the farm. Directly.
We’re all for paddock-to-plate dining, so it should go without saying that we are just as high on the idea of paddock-to-pantry. Farmhouse Direct works with farmers and small producers to create an online hub where goods are grown, made, packed and shipped direct to your door by the seller. Traditional retailing reportedly sees producers earn 10 to 30 percent of the transaction cost, while goods purchased online through Farmhouse Direct ensure 90 percent of the money goes directly to the producer.
Farmhouse Direct sells a huge range of food from fruit, vegetables, dairy products, jams and preserves, meat and small goods, rice and grains. It doesn’t stop there, as sellers can also hawk furniture! Craft goods, candles, textiles, body products and more are also for sale. All purchases are shipped directly to your door, so now you don’t even need to worry about lugging bags from the car each time you hit the shops. If you need to be further convinced to give Farmhouse a shot, the site is giving customers a chance at winning a luxurious weekend getaway. When was the last time your grocery store was this generous?
