100% Australian owned and operated. FarmGate Online supports local business, working with other local farmers, producers and suppliers as much as possible.
We believe a strong local food economy is critical to the long-term health and wellbeing of our community. Supporting local growers and producers also keeps money, skills and jobs in the local economy.
What is a FarmGate?
A FarmGate is a location where people go to collect produce purchased from FarmGate Online. For every box delivered to a gate for collection, the gate’ receives 10% of the value of the order. Becoming a FarmGate is a fantastic way of fundraising all year round while receiving healthy, Australian grown produce. Any individual, school, community centre, church or sporting club can become a gate.
Gates can be public with anyone able to join or private limiting the gate to only those you invite. For example, a school may wish to restrict their gate to current school families or you may wish just to have your close friends or neighbours pick up from you. Let us know and we can help you set it up!
What does a FarmGate need? A gate needs a cool, clean and secure area where boxes can be stored prior to collection and someone to supervise the collection of boxes.
We aim to operate in an environmentally sustainable manner selecting products, packaging and producers accordingly.
We use packaging produced for the wholesale fruit and vegetable industry lined with a fully recyclable plastic sleeve. On our next delivery, we collect and then reuse these boxes until they are no longer serviceable. At this point we return them to the manufacturer for reprocessing or if they are too damaged send them to a specialist recycler to be converted into other products.
We also collect the plastic liner to ensure that it is recycled effectively.
Fair Price Produce
FarmGate Online isn’t about being the cheapest. We’re about bringing quality, local produce to the community through as few middlemen and across the least number of kilometers possible.
Farmers and producers set prices that keep their businesses viable. FarmGate Online covers the cost of it’s operation and ongoing development and the community gets good fresh produce.
We think that gives everyone a fair go.
What our customers are saying
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!!
