Just over two years ago, we set out to create an independent food supply platform, that connected Consumers with Growers. We believed that the two key stakeholders in every food chain could be connected in a way that was elegant in its simplicity, and effective in improving returns for the Growers, while lowering food waste and costs for the Consumers.
Along the way, we created a system that proved these things to be true. We’re proud of the product we built, but even more so, we’re grateful for the community of Consumers and Growers that brought it to life.
At every turn, your feedback shaped Farm2door’s development, and your passion signalled a new chapter for sourcing the freshest products from small Australian growers. Together we scoured the countryside for suppliers and growers, supported those who sought to make a difference to our rural and migrant communities; and provided employment and skills to several young men and women. Thank you for helping to bring this reality into view.
Farm2door’s story ends here. Many challenges in the world of food sourcing remain unsolved, and we failed to create a sustainable platform for connecting sufficient numbers of Consumers with Growers. For this, we’re deeply sorry. We considered every option before making the difficult decision to end the product that brought us together.
As of today, it is no longer possible to create a new account, or to place an order. For the next month, our first priority is to refund your credits, and pick up empty eskies, so that they don’t clog your garage.
You can still access your account to confirm what you are owed in your account, and email us your Bank details to facilitate the transfer. Send us an email if you have eskies that need to be picked up, and we’ll confirm a pick-up date and time.
Our team will be disbanding and going onto other things. I have been delighted to work alongside this talented team.
Thank you for the time and attention you’ve contributed to this community. It has been a privilege to go shopping together, and we look forward to meeting again, in new ways.
Sincerely, Gourav & the Farm2door team
