Local Produce
Connections

Farmer Meets Foodie connects farmers, harvesters, graziers and growers directly to restaurants, cafes, food trucks and caterers who have a passion for using local produce.  We are passionate about telling the story behind how produce is grown and prepared, the work that goes into it, the challenges, the innovation and creation that is making Australian produce sort after worldwide.

Stories to tell

We are committed to ensuring that Australia’s amazing produce is available locally, close to where its grown or harvested, in our restaurants, cafes and at events.  There are challenges around making that a reality.  Farmer Meets Foodie is addressing these challenges, making it easier for producers and commercial foodies to find each other, to tell the stories behind their businesses, to buy and sell produce locally.  Farmer Meets Foodie provides a first class service to make local produce available across all regions of Australia.

‘Spoonies Fro-Yo was able to get a reasonable quantity of lemons to make our lemonade.  We are proud to tell customers it is made from locally grown lemons.  We’ll be asking for more very soon, very pleased!’ Graham Poon
