FAQ

DELIVERY

When you shop at Farmhouse you’re buying straight from each producer, the person directly involved in growing and making the goods. We have asked our producers to ship to you within 24 hours and for weekend orders to ship on Monday.  Our producers aim to ship your order promptly unless stated otherwise in their “Stall Policy” or “Delivery & Shipping Info” on product pages.  Please allow extra time for Australia Post to deliver your parcel at busy times like Christmas and Easter.
Just like a physical farmers’ market, when you shop at Farmhouse you’re buying directly from each producer, the person directly involved with growing and making the goods. Therefore, when you place an order with more than one producer on Farmhouse, you will receive a package in the post from each producer accordingly. The packages may arrive at different times.
Once your order has been placed and paid for, we are unable to add further items to it, even if it has not yet shipped.  If you would like to add more items to your basket after check out it will be as a new order.
All returns are handled directly between you and the producer.  In the first instance, you should check the producer’s stall page on Farmhouse to see if they have published a stall policy.  You can contact the producer by entering in your questions in the 'Message the Producer' at the bottom of your order detail page.
The card is a ‘Postal Item Awaiting Collection’ card from your Australia Post postie.  The Farmhouse logo on the card is only an advertisement and not related to the parcel awaiting collection.  If you have received one of these cards please follow the regular process and go to the specified post office to collect your item.
We would love to fulfil international orders but do not currently offer this service.  Due to the nature of perishable products and the complexity of quarantine restrictions we do not ship outside Australia at present.

Unfortunately we are unable to ship to the following external territories at this time:

Christmas Island WA 6798 (Indian Ocean), Cocos (Keeling) Islands WA 6799, Norfolk Island NSW 2899, Lord Howe Island NSW 2898, Australian Antarctic Territory TAS 7151, Territory of Heard Island and McDonald Island TAS 7151.


Due to the range of products for sale on Farmhouse you may encounter different shipping restrictions.  This may be due to the producer’s location, your location or your state’s unique quarantine laws.  Australia has a complex set of quarantine laws which dictate where produce can be sent from and to.  Also, due to the nature of some perishable products they are not suitable to ship under different conditions.  All of our producers ship to you at a time when their product is at peak freshness to ensure this you might find that they only send their products at particular times of the week.  Please take a note of their “Stall Policy” and “Delivery & Shipping” tab on product pages to check any restrictions.

For any order enquiries please contact the Producer directly. You can contact the producer by entering in your question in the 'Message the Producer' areas at the bottom of your order detail page.

PRODUCE

Yes. You can order from up to ten producers in a single transaction. If you selected items from more than ten producers you will need to return to Farmhouse after paying for your first ten producers in one PayPal transaction. The remaining orders will still be available for purchase in your basket – simply follow the steps you took for your first transaction.

Many producers on Farmhouse offer seasonal products.  As is the nature of seasonal produce it is not available all year round.  This is one the of things that makes Farmhouse so special – the produce is grown locally to ensure freshness and quality.

 

HOW IT WORKS

Farmhouse eliminates the middleman. When you buy something on Farmhouse you are actually purchasing directly from the Farmer/Producer. Just like a physical farmers’ market, the farmer sets up their stall and sets their product prices, you purchase directly from the farmer, your money goes directly to the farmer and then the farmer packages and posts your products direct to you. Keep in mind that you will receive a package from each farmer you order from and that could be from anywhere in Australia. 

Contacting a producer is easy - Each product page has an ‘Messages' tab on right under the product picture. Simply write your message and send it. You can check your responses by clicking in the ‘Account Info' page, by selecting you login name at the top right corner of the page.  Within the 'Account Info' page you can select the 'Messages' option.

You can also contact the producer by typing your question in the 'Messages to Producer' area at the bottom of your order detail page.
