We don’t just use the tagline Farm. Oven. Plate because it sounds kind of trendy. We are huge believers in supporting NSW farmers, from our Dubbo-based flour supplier Ben Furney to our local spinach supplier, Werombi Farms.
Every week, we hold stalls at over 10 farmers markets in and around Sydney – from Newcastle in the north, to Kiama in the south – and this gives us a brilliant opportunity to meet and get to know farmers and producers from all around the state.
One of our favourites is Country Valley Dairy, a small dairy farm in Picton, in the Southern Highlands, which are famous for their real, old-fashioned milk and especially their incredible, award-winning ‘Lush’ yoghurt.
So we decided to team up with Country Valley to bring a scrumptious new summer treat to Sydneysiders this festive season – and we’ve dubbed them Muesli Pots.
Creamy slightly sweetened ‘Lush’ yoghurt is layered with Shepherd’s nutty ‘Double Toasted Muesli’ and house-made fruit compote in two flavours (Wildberry Bash and Apple Chia Avalanche), all crammed into a cute little reusable jar.
The golden crunchy muesli is made in the style of American granola (i.e. delicious!) but contains no cane sugar and is instead sweetened with more GI-friendly agave and maple syrup. The Muesli Pots are designed to make a perfect breakfast-on-the-go or a nutritious snack, and are available at Shepherd’s bakery cafes throughout summer.
