Ever since this land broke away from the supercontinent 100 million years ago, it has evolved in complete geographical isolation for that entire time – void of ice ages, tectonic shifts and vulcanism. it’s one giant old rock that was formed by erosion and it’s flora; crafted by fire.
Australia’s aridity and her ancient, fractured soils have carved out the most complex array of flora known to man. the relationship between native culture, flora and land are so intricate that to remove one, collapses another. very rarely do we bare witness to such incredible environmental balance, especially when humans are involved.
We seek to add value to native ingredients, supporting farmers who opt for more sustainable farming methods, crops and orchards. we value those who wish to listen and learn from indigenous culture and understand the importance of working in harmony with nature.
