We have had a good start to the season, with our first harvest of clingstone peaches which everyone loved. Then we picked our damsons so many on the tree it took two of us an entire day to pick them all and now we have about 50 kgs to cook and clean , from which we are making damson butter! We also had about 20kgs of King Billy plums some we have put together with the wild blackberries and some we shall bottle for the Lake Wendouree market on the 25th Feb .
We have added a hair conditioner which makes your hair feel wonderfully soft and shinny. We have also given our soap our brand stamp, which was fun to make and looks totally rad! You can find our products now in Beaufort at a brilliant shop called ” Bloomin Fresh Stuff”

Brilliant it rained all night nothing better than hearing rain on a tin roof Continue reading “Rain Rain, and we love it!”
