As a self-employed businessman, Matt Rohrsheim is used to rolling with the punches.
The owner of Haven Grown - an organic vegetable wholesaler - has faced setbacks already once this year, and he's braced for the next one.
"In the past week things have gone backwards," he said.
"There are no markets - which made up the bulk of my sales.
"I supply several Horsham restaurants, and many of them have shut up shop this week due to the COVID-19 restrictions."
From midnight Wednesday, regional Victoria will enter Stage Three restrictions, forcing restaurants and cafes to only offer takeaway food services.
This is the second time regional Victoria is forced into the restrictions, with the state going into lockdown on March 30.
Mr Rohrsheim adapted, but even mother nature worked against him.
"In March, during the first lockdown, I totally changed my business model," he said.
"I moved to a contact-free delivery model, and that was working well.
"However, once winter came, my veggie stocks dropped and so did business."
Mr Rohrsheim grows a range of organic vegetables, including pumpkins, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, carrots, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, beans, capsicum, and artichokes.
As new positive COVID-19 cases were reduced in July, the State Government lifted restrictions on restaurants across the state.
Mr Rohrsheim said there was light at the end of the tunnel.
"As the restrictions lifted, more restaurants opened, and I began supplying stock once again," he said.
"Now the restrictions are back, and we're back to square one.
"My sales outlets are totally different now compared to 12 months ago... I rely on home delivery as my only source of income.
He said the support for business owners and employees are a godsend.
"Without the government support - from both state and federal levels - my business would have closed," he said.
"I am a self-employed business owner in a labour-intensive job.
"I have toyed with the idea of getting my business to the point where I could employ one or two people, but I am glad I didn't.
"That's a lot of worry about even without COVID-19."
