Easter Chocolate

What's In The Box?

Kiwi friends and fellow feijoa-lovers WE HAVE NEWS!!

Featured fruit this week are organic feijoa from Hinterland Feijoas near Eumundi and Fresh Local Figs from Woombye. Both Packham and Beurre Bosc pears are in stock and NEW SEASON Gala apples supercede the ultra-popular Sundowner apples from Stanthorpe. We say goodbye to the last Summer stone fruit and hello to fresh local pineapples!

Featured veg this week are delicious sweet corn and 'meaty' crimini mushrooms. Tomatoes will be organic Roma this week - possibly the last for several weeks as the Ayr growing regions recover after Cyclone Debbie. Organic cucumber and eggplant is grown by Ashley Palmer of Mt Cotton. Bauers celery is back in stock and essential to our Broth Box, also $33.

Eat your greens! Broccoli in stock this week. Spinach punnets are expected to available also. Browse our Green Grocer for more!

Easter Choc - Duck Creek Macadamias are back!

We haven't done Easter in a big way since the shop but we just can't let go of the Fantasies Gift Box from Duck Creek Macadamia featuring local macadamias, toasted and coated in toffee, then dipped in couverture chocolate. They are truly indulgent and very delicious.

Of course your favourite organic choc-coated nuts, ginger and licorice from Junee are always in stock - Green Grove Organics.

Keep The Mould At Bay With Local Products

Pure Bamboo Moso Bamboo Charcoal Deodorisers are a great way to keep the mould away. $1 off all products until sold out. Please ignore the description given to every product - you are not limited to using Boot Deodorisers just in boots. Think equivalent size spaces though - use boot deodorisers in your gym bag, glove compartment, camera case or filing cabinet. Use nappy bucket sachets under your bin liner, in your handbag, slipped in between the pages of your wedding album. Car and Fridge/Freezer deodorisers are better used in larger spaces like your linen closet or shoe cupboard or just prop one behind the door or on the shelf in your WC. Whatever application, there is a biodegradable sachet that's the right size for the job. Put them outside on a dry, sunny day to refresh once a month and they'll last you for years.

Once the mould has taken hold use OurEco Clean Clove and Sweet Orange Spray. The orange oil cleans while the clove oil deters mould - smells great in bathrooms where clove oil alone may be too strong smelling.

New Honey in a New Size!

Our neighbouring honey producer at Three Mile Honey can now supply honey in 500g squeeze bottles as well as one litre jars. The Summer batch was predominantly Ironbark honey. This Autumn batch is predominantly Spotted Gum honey. The colour is darker and the consistency just a little thicker. It is fascinating to observe the seasonal changes in local, ethical raw honey production.

Honey of course means a by product in the form of wax. We can now reliably source 100% pure beeswax bars - filtered to 1 micron - suitable for all applications from cosmetics to candle-making. $3 per 100g is our preliminary price - please tell us what you think and feel free to submit an enquiry.

Website Glitches?

We have received feedback from some shoppers that they've had technical issues either registering as customers or completing the order process. If this describes you we'd love to hear more so that we can diagnose the problem: support@freshlocal.com.au
