So exciting to see resilient people get moving faced with adversity. In the last week, Grace Brennan, based in Warren NSW, has launched a campaign to support rural businesses, under the hashtag #buyfromthebush. Yesterday, they hit 50,000 followers. Their Instagram page has a wonderful spread of smart rural businesses doing great things in all corners of Australia. This is a tangible support for Australian rural business in times of drought and is reaping immediate rewards. Well done Grace.
In Braidwood NSW, we may not think of ourselves as remote - we are after all one hour from the nation's capital! This week we were reminded though that our retail customers are facing significant downturn, quiet main streets and limited disposable income in their community. Talking to a beautiful gourmet foodstore in western Victoria, it was clear that they had no capacity to buy new stock at all, until the rain comes. We are all interconnected in our endeavours, and perhaps this Christmas you can make a mission of "buying from the bush"! You wont need to face the mall crowds and will access fantastic gifts from talented people. Get shopping
Great to chat with Shannon this week at Hill Street Grocer Lauderdale - she was instantly interested in stocking our black garlic range and supplies are on their way! Look out for cloves and powders in their gorgeous store and add the fabulous umami flavour to your pantry
Don't miss out on your black food supplies. Black garlic has a lovely black sheen with a rich umami flavour. Get some for your Halloween party cheese board - we hear black garlic is a favourite with vampires so all good for Halloween. In that spirit we are offering 10% off until Halloween - just use HALLOWEEN on checkout.

At Food Service & Hospitality Brisbane recently, the locals all said to get our range into The Bardon Shed and they were right. Thanks Pip for smoothing the way and Leesa for taking us on. We look forward to good times together selling fabulous healthy food to Brisbane.
Thanks Cafe Woodworks Bungendore for supporting a local business like our. Great to see our black cloves and black garlic white balsamic dressing on your shelves. Looking forward to a fabulous summer together!
Congratulations to Monaco's in Camberwell celebrating their 45th year trading as a family-owned genuine delicatessen. Their customers love the depth of cheeses, meats and deli goods they can source there. Now they can also access our black garlic cloves. Thanks for taking us on and here is to 45 more years of family business.
