Homegrown & Handmade

Hello and welcome to my shop. Here you will find my handmade artisan olive oil and textile gifts. Everything is useful, wholesome and designed with reusable or long life quality components.

A long time ago I opted out of a hectic career in Sydney in search of a simple life in the country. Today with my husband and our three boys we found our slice of heaven on a 10 acre olive farm near the country town of Boddington in Western Australia. Here we live in a simple weatherboard cottage surrounded by space; big trees, paddocks, our horses, quietness. The perfect base to raise our family.

My online venture evolved early 2010 from my desire to be at home during the early stages of parenting. My sewing and food skills which form the foundation of my enterprise were learn't as a child watching over my mothers shoulder, who was highly skilled in both areas. Combine those with a business degree, career in marketing, a big dose of resourcefulness and a sideline micro business was created.

In recent years I've taken an interest in regenerative agriculture and in 2016 completed a Permaculture Design Certificate to better inform how we manage our land and live here as a family. Our 30 year old olive grove has always been managed using organic agriculture principles. No chemical fertiliser, pesticides have ever been used and we have not even reticulated the trees for the last decade. The grove is small enough to allow harvest and pruning gently by hand by my family, and even our horses are included our management system, run through the grove to manage weeds, provide nutrient rich manure and remnant hay mulch through the rows.

I have enjoyed shipping my goods to over a dozen countries around the globe and look forward to serving you. I hope you enjoy browsing my pieces as much as I enjoy producing them.
