Over 5 million tonnes of food ends up as landfill in Australia every year. The team from Mary Valley Food Co, noticed a lot of produce was falling to the ground and not being used in there local area of Mary Valley in Queensland. As a result they decided to start Mary Valley Food Company so that they could support local farmers and reduce the amount of food going to waste. Their range of artisan dried fruit is not only beautiful packaged, but all of the fruit used is hand-picked from small-scale producers within the Valley.
Use them to flavour water, garnish a cocktail or decorate a grazing board! We have stock of their dried Limes, Oranges, Mango in our grocery department.

Whilst on a hunt to find the perfect pickle, Ricky noticed the pickles on the market in Australia were imported, had loads of additives and firming agents and zero crunchy! After spending decades working in kitchens & finding a gap in the market for an Australian made, well balanced, crunchy jar of pickles with no additives - Ricky embarked on making his own! The result is an absolutely delicious, premium, locally made product which is superior to what is currently on most shelves! Not only are their pickles amazing - their whole grain mustard is too! Sourcing their crunchy cucumbers from Karridale, juicy heirloom tomatoes in Manjimup, fresh and herbaceous dill from Harvey and raw honey from Nannup - this is as local as it gets!

They do things differently in Norway. They like their traditions and the beauty of simplicity... taking the time to do things carefully and with attention to little details. There can be no better example than the way they make traditional snap crackers (Knekkebrød). In Norway, they call it 'baking with a tender heart'. Hence the name MØR Hjerte Bakeri.

Congratulations to Halls Family Dairy for winning a Delicious Harvey Norman Produce Award - they are State winners for "In the Fridge" category. Their 'Suzette' is a Boatshed Favourite!
Hall's Suzette is a 'Pont L'Eveque' style cheese made by 4th generation dairy farmers in the Harvey Area. The Hall family own and run the dairy where they have a commercial herd as well as a small herd of pure bred Normande Cow's. The only in Australia! Normande cows are a breed that was developed in the Normandy region of Northern France. This is where the original Pont l'Eveque cheese (protected by PDO) is made.
The use of this milk is significant not only because of the origin of this style of cheese, but also because of the quality of the milk they produce. These Normande cows produce a milk richer in protein and butterfat than your conventional dairy cow (Holstein). Perfect for cheese making. All this contributes to an extremely high quality and flavoursome cheese made right here in WA.
The cheese itself is a washed rind cheese made for the family by the head cheese maker at Harvey Cheese, less than a kilomtere away from the dairy. It is a square cheese that is rich and milky when young, full of lactic sweetness. As it ages, it becomes fudgier, developing nutty and smokey flavours.
