    Default Aussie farmers direct and others

    Hi there, in an effort to make more time in my life, I'm considering buying through Aussie farmers? Does anyone do this? If so, is it helpful to the running of your week? Is it a lot more expensive than shopping elsewhere? What do you but through them?
    I have also heard of others. What are good places to buy from or is it just a waste of money?

    I'm a big fan. We get a regular milk & bread delivery and then add some things here and there. I like knowing that's it's 100% Australian, plus the bread is awesome. It's definitely more expensive but so, so convenient.

    I find their fruit and veg always fresh. Milk is good, meat, eggs, etc.

    I stopped buying their fruit and veg only because they never used to deliver on Sunday/Monday but I think they do now?

    what are their prices for bread and milk like? Do they do unhomogenised milk?

    They are more expensive but it is very fresh and you know it's definitely Australian.

    I didn't like their bread.

    I have used Aussie Farmers in the past and I would say that the fruit and veg is more expensive BUT it is fresh so it doesn't turn to compost the next day like some things from the supermarket. Also, you tend to get seasonal produce which is cheaper because it is abundant. I stopped using it because I couldn't afford it for a while and just haven't gone back to it. Also, last time I checked they didn't sell bread that my dd will eat.
