Straight from the farmers paddock and onto your dinner plate!

The convenience of home delivery has become even more appetizing with Aussie Farmers Direct providing a one stop shop for fresh local and Aussie grown produce.

For busy mother of three Lesley Powell, the free home delivery service not only saves her time but she says even saves her dollars.

"The price is very reasonable, we will buy a big box and I think it is cheaper than a lot of other places I have bought fruit and veg from before," says Lesley.

And it's brought back the humble milkman, delivering much more than just your daily dairy.

Bruce Smith is one of the trusted local milky's dropping off boxes of essentials to Adelaide families.

"I deliver fruit and veg during the day and milk and bread and meat during the night," says Bruce.

And that's not all. Beyond convenience the quality and freshness is guaranteed by CEO Braedon Lord.

"It's 100% Australian, we give all our farmers a fair go on being able to provide great quality product. It's milk and bread and eggs and cheese, its meat, seafood, some great salmon fillets and barramundi, then we go into fruit and vegetables, everything that's the latest and best in season at the moment and grown on Australian farms," says Braedon.

Farmer Mark Pye is one of the South Australian producers supplying a variety of spuds as well as carrots and onions.

"Our margins are getting squeezed all the time but we just like to think Australians will support us, because it is guaranteed quality and it is clean and green," says Mark.

It is a constant battle for Aussie farmers competing against cheaper imported fruit and vegetables that are sold at the major supermarkets but Aussie Farmers Direct gives local producers a fair go.

"We are a family, local South Australian family business so it's great they are supporting local producers and the industry and not using imported produce," says Mark.

The home delivery service has only been available in Adelaide for 12 months but it's already a hit with parents and kids.
