Hi Laura, I haven't tired Farmhouse Direct but I generally find these services offer reasonable value and are helpful in our busy lives. I've had regular fruit/veg deliveries over the years and they can be a godsend. Because they are seasonal, you also find yourself using new produce that may not normally make it into your shopping basket.

Kerry I find the freshness as hard to find at the farmers at the powerhouse markets now. Seems there is more cheap nick nacks then genuine farmers. I have seen imported fruit and veggies there. When asked where all of the genuine farmers have gone I was told the stall fees are too high now and they cant afford to sell their wares. Your comments?
