Four Leaf orders please
I am about to do another order so, if you need something special or something in large quantities or feed wheat for chooks etc, please reply to this email with your order asap. Grains are available to order whole or ground into flour, from 5kgs to 20kg bags. You can check out the Four Leaf website here but do ask if you don’t see what you want as they are in the process of making a new website.

Raw Cacao; powder and whole
Everyone is going on about superfoods, which, in general, I call superfads. However, raw cacao powder is so much better than the Cadbury’s processed stuff that I decided to sell it. Take that another step and try Barry Beach’s raw cacao beans, picked on license from the wild in Indonesia! Read more below….

Almond update
I have spoken to Richard and expect to have the almonds at the next market, August 6th. You will be able to collect your paid orders from my home shop. I will send an email once they have arrived.

Hugh’s lamingtons and GF breads
Again you would be best to be to the market early to get some of Hugh’s very popular lamingtons, vanilla slices and GF sourdough breads at my stall.

Winter Health
Everyone is coming down with colds and winter ills. Now is the time to care for your body by growing vitamins, enzymes and antioxidants on your kitchen bench and window sill. See all about it below….

Olive oil and Sunflower Oil

Next Crop Swap August 12th, 11am – 1pm
More than 40 people came to our launch on the freezing cold Saturday morning of July 1st. It was a a blast, with 2 tables packed to overflowing with plants, seeds, produce, baked goods, books, magazines, eggs and more. Everyone was smiling. It was such a great vibe.

Everyone is welcome to our gatherings, whether or not you have anything to share. Come for a coffee and chat. Come alone or with friends and family. Gather in my lovely shed. Join the Crop Swap Cygnet and Surrounds facebook page for updates or ask me to put you on the email list.

Campo de Flori Saffron
Lisa grows saffron on her beautiful farm at Glen Huon. I am now stocking her glass jars of saffron, which she encourages you to have refilled. This is my kind of ethical philosophy! Read more below…..

Square eftpos
The Garden Shed and Pantry now has credit card, debit card, chip and contactless payment facilities! Square is a simple and cheap system suited to every form of transaction. It may be cheap but it is not free, so I would still prefer cash but no longer will there be any inconvenience if you do not have enough cash with you!
