There are a few key things getting us all through the livelong days as we seclude ourselves in isolation. Among those things are home deliveries. Whether we’ve ordered something on a whim from our favourite online store or decided to get takeaway for the umpteenth time, delivery services are definitely keeping many of us sane during COVID-19.
Many farmers have also opted to strengthen or initiate their online delivery services during the pandemic, joining forces with stores and businesses in a bid to distribute their produce more extensively.
Here, we provide you with a list of places delivering fresh fruit, vegetables and pantry staples direct to your door!

As the COVID-19 crisis continues to evolve, we find ourselves getting sucked further and further into the self-isolation black hole. Restrictions on what we can and can’t do are getting more intense, and we’re all unsure when the light will shine again.
One thing is for sure – when it comes to grocery shopping, options that include home delivery are preferred, as more and more of us decide to stay within the confines of our four walls. That is, after all, the aim of the COVID game.
Enter, another game. The juicy, fresh, local, and tender kind. Delivered to you direct from the farm, ready to get fired up on the barby, grilled to perfection, or eaten up from the charcuterie board that accompanies your Netflix binge.
Here, we give you a list of some of the finest and freshest meat boxes available for delivery direct from Melbourne’s surrounding farms.
