Some people love Christmas and the hype around it, and some people like myself, are a bit of a Christmas Grinch. I guess I am very old-school and when I was a child, Christmas was the most exciting time of the year. Going back to those days though, Christmas did not start in the middle of October like it does now. Now, don't get me wrong, it's not that I don't enjoy Christmas Day, it's just the hassle of the shopping, both for the food and the gifts. Thank goodness we have online now!
I'll be heading to the country to spend my Christmas with my family, minus mum who passed away last year, and I must say I do love leaving Sydney and enjoying the time up there. So I have a huge affinity with farmers, especially as my family are in the country. That's when I came across Aussie Farmers Direct that deliver Aussie products straight to your door. It's a great way to support our farmers and make life easier for yourself.
Options for ordering are weekly, fortnightly, or once off. Unfortunately, I live in a unit without access to my front door so I can't get delivered at home, however I can arrange to have my hamper delivered to a family address so that works out ok.
Delivery is free for orders over $25 and $2 for anything under that amount. Orders are delivered in weatherproof boxes and esky bag that is delivered on the first order, this needs to be left at the front door for future deliveries so those in units, like me, would have to be home so that's the only problem I see.
So back to Christmas. There are Christmas boxes that can be delivered with everything you need for a fabulous Christmas lunch or dinner. It doesn't get much easier than that. From Seafood boxes, Women's Weekly Christmas Boxes including recipes and traditional Christmas food boxes. I don't know about you, personally, I think this is a much less stressful way to shop for Christmas lunch or dinner.
