    Default Does anyone use Aussie Farmers Direct?

    As the title says, has anyone used Aussie Farmers Direct?

    What is the quality like?
    Are they reliable?
    Do you spend more or less than what you would in a supermarket?
    Do you get most your groceries from them or just certain things?

    Thanks!

    I used to, and found no problems with the quality, however there were a few stuff ups with them not giving me exactly what I ordered or missing items off. I'm happy with substitutes and appreciate errors can occur or things not available, but the run around to sort out mistakes was a pain.
    Each area has its own person assigned, I think it's franchised, however when something goes amiss, you still go through the main Farmers Direct call centre etc.

    Eta: The products were mostly more then the supermarkets I found, however the quality was better. I bought fruit and veg, yoghurt and bread. I never tried their meats. Delivery wise they were reliable.

    Yes we experienced a number of stuff ups and it was always a pain to rectify. So we stopped it.

    I used them once and decided to stop the service. They harassed me for months on end despite me telling them I was not interested. Once they told me just to get milk from them, I said no thank you had they said 'don't you want to support our farmers?' Grr
