How We Started.
FarmGate Online started from a chance meeting with a potato farmer at a farmers market. We got talking about the prices the big supermarkets were offering for his crop and how at that time it was about half his production cost.
The next week we bought 350Kg of his potatoes (which were fantastic) and sold them online in two days. Many of the buyers commented on how sick and tired they were of buying produce from supermarkets that went off in no time or was imported even though the same product was grown locally. A lot of people asked what other produce we could get from the local growers.
So now we’re working with a range of local growers and suppliers to offer a full range of 100% Australian grown produce and to incorporate locally grown and produced organic products.

What our customers say
Received my third organic mixed box order today and it is awesome as always. Amazingly fresh and delicious produce; and the eggs are fantastic too. So happy I found you! Love knowing we are directly supporting the local farmers too.
Got my first delivery from FarmGate Online this afternoon - gorgeous produce; fresh, tasty, healthy. I particularly like that there was not a piece of plastic packaging in sight! It makes me feel good that I'm not only supporting local farmers, but that my children are eating the best quality foods possible and it's all fresh, fresh, fresh! I'll be watching with interest to see what other packages and boxes will be available in the near future.
Got my second boxes yesterday. I thought the first box ( mixed ) was good, but second ones were even better! Absolutely loved everything in the boxes. They look beautiful, taste delicious and oh so fresh! Knowing my family is eating the best quality veggies and fruits makes me very happy. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone
I got my first box today. I have to say I am very, very impressed. The quality is fantastic and there is enough for my family of 5 with a little bit left for the bunnies. I will definitely be ordering every week.
Fantastic variety & quality. The freshness of the produce is outstanding! The big supermarkets say they offer freshness but you only realise how untrue this is when you have a comparison! This is THE comparison.
Fantastic fresh local produce that lasts so much longer than the supermarket produce!! Will definately be buying again!!
You guys are doing an amazing job! We thoroughly enjoy our produce each week! You have inspired us to keep our own chickens for the wonderful fresh eggs and to also grow some of our own heavily used veggies! We've just started eating capsicums and zucchinis from our garden!
