The girls at Farm Fresh South Milk have been busy, with the business now offering local milk from its new vending machine in Windsor.
Raw milk will continue to be offered from its home base in Woodlands, and the business has also ramped up its home deliveries, with customers from Bluff to Dunedin and also into Queenstown Lakes and Central Otago.
In the retail side of the business, owners Logan and Melissa Johnson now have between 45 and 50 vendors onboard – with their whole pasteurised milk selling in supermarkets, cafes, restaurants and food stores – including Stewart Island.
The second vending machine would’ve been commissioned much sooner, but Covid-19 slowed everything down, and one piece was broken in transit.
The milk dispenser ended up in Balclutha, and it has taken until now for the complete machine to be ready for service.
Farm fresh milk is now available from bliss.cafe.giftshop.wellbeing at 60 Windsor Street, “so jump up on your roof and shout it out. Let the milk lovers know Farm Fresh South is coming to town,” the couple said.
There’s also Farm Fresh Markets added to the mix as well, so you can now have your fresh milk, bread, lamb loin cutlets, honey, eggs and micro greens in one order – with a growing number of local food producers on board.
Logan said they were always on the lookout for more local producers to become part of the market.
“We’re just getting started. We want to provide a service for people where it’s more convenient to buy locally produced and sourced food.”
