Church Farm General Store was co-founded back in 2013 by Andrew Morris and Amanda Callan. They live in an old timber church in Billinudgel, NSW with their four boys Banjo, Percy, Reggie & Herb.
When Andrew and Amanda first bought the church, there wasn’t any trees or plants on the property, so they planted loads of native trees, built a bunch of garden beds and started to grow food for their family. It wasn’t long until they had excess chillies, tomatoes, cucumbers, herbs and flowers that they wanted to make good use of.
8 years ago, Liz and her husband decided to try their hand at beekeeping and started their first hives at their weekender down on Phillip Island, in Victoria.
Liz and her husband fell head over heels with these incredible little creatures and quickly learnt just how much impact they have on our food chain and ecosystem. This led Liz to a much deeper understanding of the ecosystem, ecology and people’s effect on it; it was leaning her to take some personal responsibility and make some big changes.
Introducing Angie and Josh, the duo using a unique recipe and crafting method to create longer-lasting, self-adhesive wraps that are the perfect alternative to single-use plastics.
They have equipped their home with solar wax heating technologies, created to be as environmentally savvy as currently possible, and they pledge to continually strive towards perfect sustainability.
With a lot of learning, research and hard work, Beeswax Wraps Australia has become a thriving and unique brand. With beautiful organic prints on the wraps which are handcrafted in Angie and Josh’s home from all Australian and organic materials, we’re sure you’ll never need plastic again.
Soon with a lot of learning, research and hard work, their little weekend adventure became Beeswax Wraps Australia. They then started adding beautiful organic prints on them as they wanted people to love how they look and as it was being used in a place where people gather. And where we gather, we have stories and we talk and by using beeswax wraps, those conversations turn into a drive for sustainability.
We’d like you to meet a couple from Mullimbimby, NSW, Sally and Scott, who started baking oats, nuts and seeds at home in their kitchen, coming up with five delicious flavours of muesli and granola back in 2009.
Their aim is to take all that was great about muesli – basically, it’s incredible health and nutritional benefits – and add some bling. They want to make muesli that has you salsa dancing to the breakfast table wearing flowers in your hair!
A decade on, with a range of 15 types of muesli and granola flavours, including gluten free and paleo mixes, and a strong team which includes Sally’s sister, Michelle, and her partner, Eliseo working alongside them. Farmer Jo is now sold around Australia and exports to Japan and elsewhere in Asia.
When the team are creating new products and sourcing new ingredients, they always ask themselves: “would we feed this to our family, to our kids?”. They believe it is their responsibility as a food producer to respect the farmers and the land our food has come from and to care about the end product that they pass onto their customers.
Meet Shelley and Pob, owners of Zest since 2009, who’ve crafted a range of different flavours, all hand produced and based on traditional recipes, perfectly suited to the Australian palette, yet easy to use.

They only create small batch produce to ensure you get the best flavour every time.

Zest’s products are designed to bring together local ingredients to allow Aussie families to create delicious meals without the hassle.
Introducing Pangkarra, a family owned and operated business, based in the Clare Valley, South Australia. For five generations, the family has produced quality cereals and legumes, and exported hay.
Their products are made from grain and legumes grown on their farm, using sustainable farming methods incorporating organic fertilisers. The flour is milled using traditional stone milling methods to maintain the integrity of the wholegrains. The pasta is dried slowly on racks at a consistently low temperature, the way traditional pasta is made, which ensures the product’s nutritional qualities are protected.
The result – delicious products, made from 100% natural ingredients. Pangkarra products are high in fibre, low in fat, low GI, and are an excellent source of antioxidants and phytonutrients.

The fellas behind Handsome Devils Co. are pioneering a new path in quality hot sauces and pickles. Their products are all natural, and all about flavour with no added sugars, preservatives, or colours, and of course no nasties or compromises.
Their hot sauce is the best you'll taste in Australia (and... ahem... the world). And if you don't believe it, Good Food Australia has rated their “De Arbol Hot Sauce” the number one in Australia.
Meanwhile, their pickles start with the natural sweetness of Australian grown cucumbers and an earthy blend of delicious spices. With no added sugar, or additives, we think these just might be the crunchiest, tastiest pickles that you have ever eaten.
But don’t just take our word for it, get your own and let us know what you think!
