  1. I live on the sunshine coast. I would love to buy fresh blackcurrants on a regular basis. Is there any way I can get your black currants up to Queensland?


    • We will have blackcurrants next year in about late January. We would be pleased to supply you then. Sometimes there is a problem with freight and we would definitely use Express Post. How quick it gets to you depends where in Queensland you are. Lets talk about that and work something out for then if yo are still interested.
      regards Denis

  2. would love you to advise when fresh or frozen black currants wee available just for postage. I live in new and by daughter has crowns disease. I am always looking for things to help her bloods and energy levels and tonight I have watched a program on super foods and as far as berries with anti oxidants black currants was on top. Would love to know more

    Thankyou, would purchase regularly 😊

  3. Hi Denis, my family and I are after fresh black currants (like Helana 2014 post) we are in Brisbane and Sydney. Is there a way to organise this. Cheers Heidi

  4. Hi There, I was wondering whether you have stockists in Sydney. I would like to order some blackcurrants because of the high contents of antioxidants.


  5. Denis I would be delighted to be able to buy 3 kg of frozen/fresh blackcurrants from you – to make Blackcurrant jam. I think your idea of keeping some frozen for delivery in the cooler months is a good idea. Or packaging them in polystyrene boxes with a frozen freezer pack. I shall check farmhousedirect. But certainly would be interested in any that are frozen now.

    • hi Catherine, Where do you live? Though frozen when they leave here they could start fermenting if they don’t get to you in time.
      So we need to talk about logistics. A possibility is that we make the blackcurrent jam and send it to you in pails or jars. We already make a blackcurrant jam which I don’t know if you have tried. you can contact me on 03-63725500
      regards Denis

  6. Hello there, I am delighted to find a possible source of (my favourite) blackcurrants in Australia! However I am in Perth WA, are you able to deliver here?

  7. To Dennis Buchanan,
    Here’s an emergency call from NSW.
    Coles deleted Blackcurrant Jam,… 50%fruit and richly delicious, not too sweet… from its list in April this year 2016. DISASTER. There is nothing to replace it.
    It has always sold out faster than any other jam at our Coles. It is superior in quality to any other jam. Woollies’ attempt at the same is inedible. The excuse they give is ‘didn’t sell’… so why isn’t its obvious quality promoted properly?
    For years the anthocyanin content is known; recent SBS science shows it is many times as effective from blackcurrants as from anything else. The fruit from Australia is marvellous. I won’t buy imported competition. I will be without jam.
    I am devastated to see how this top quality product is not recognised by the people so well paid to do “jobs n growth” and wealth pushing.
    The supplier was SPC Ardmona Victoria. Coles has not relayed to them all the complaints since the deletion of Blackcurrant Jam. SPC says it would have to restart a supply using another brand… well, terrific, just get going!!
    Above all, don’t let growers take out their bushes. We need this beautiful product, and people in Tas and Vic need the jobs and creative outlet from using it.
    Thankyou, please contact me with progress, 02 6545 3005

      • Hi Dennis , When Woolworths changed from Australian Blackcurrant jam to the imported version , we stopped buying it. However there is no way of knowing who their source was , so we would like to try yours , we are on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland , is there anybody in our area who buy commercial quantities from whom we could purchase a jar to try? Or if feasible we purchase one from you.

  8. Hi, i live in Melbourne and am looking to buy blackcurrants to make blackcurrant jelly. How do i find out what you have and how much it is ?

  9. Hi I live in NSW and would like to order some frozen/refresh blackcurrent. No stock on farmhouse direct. Is there another way to order?

    Thanks Jess

  10. So happy to know we have life giving blackcurrants in Australia, used to eat ’em in England & Scotland, yum.
    Could you send me some frozen bags to Perth in West Australia ? Thanks from Amanda.

    • We cannot send fresh or frozen blackcurrants to
      Western Australia because of quarantine restrictions. We do however make blackcurrant products such as Blackcurrant jam and concentrated berry juice. that’s about it

  11. I would like a kilo of frozen blackcurrants to be sent to me in ALD (postcode 4109).
    What is the cost and delivery time?
    Regards Geoff Hodge

  12. Hi,
    I live in Sydney and haven’t seen fresh black currants here? Do they grow in our weather? Do you grow and distribute green gage plums or know someone who does please?

  13. Tried to subscribe to your newsletter but I was told I had already subscribed. Please can you tell me where in Melbourne I can buy black currants.

    • We have blackcurrants which we despatch fresh in summer. At present out of stock of frozen ones. We generally advertise on our shopping trolley when they are available. (www.eurekafarm.net)

  14. Hi Dennis.
    I’m totally flabbergasted. The Henry Jones IXL Fruit Co. was founded in Hobart and blackcurrents were a staple. They make fantastic jam. I level some responsibility on the consumer, maybe it’s only because you do not eat them straight off the bush. The Woolworths stuff from Belgium (EU) is not up to scratch and is rarely available in Tas. There must be an opportunity for a well produced and promoted commercial line of this iconic Tasmanian jam.

  15. I managed to get frozen blackcurrants in 2019 from a source in Sydney, but in 2020 they decided to no longer sell to “small” businesses like myself. I make and sell jams at the local markets and would be interested in buying at least 4kg of blackcurrants. Could you please let me know how much this would be and how to order them please?

    • For Sydney we have to send fresh blackcurrants in vacuum sealed bags air express so that you get them in good shape. 4kg of blackcurrants though cost $110 delivered which should make 8-10 kg of jam. Blackcurrants are the only jam you don’t need as much fruit. The fruit has been washed and makes a great conserve. We also sell the conserve on our web site. Do you make a conserve? We could probably supply you with a blackcurrant puree in 5 litre containers which would probably be cheaper and transport better. Let us know what you think as the picking season is almost over.
