We’ve had our shortest day of the year, so it’s all upwards from here. We hope you’re well rugged up with something toasty and warm to snack on (maybe before a good fire? If you have a fireplace, we know who we’re trying to visit!) Why not try out our new bowl cosies? They’ll let you enjoy your freshly cooked porridge without burning your hands, and it makes for a great lapwarmer while you’re at it (provided, of course, that that position isn’t already occupied by your furry friends).
New Product Alert – GF Aussie Oats
Now this one is very special, it’s a project that’s been near and dear to our hearts for a long time, and now we’re thrilled to share it’s come to fruition and will be available to purchase very soon.
Our GF Aussie Oats are grown right here in Australia on dedicated facilities that are free of contamination from wheat, rye and barley. From processing to transportation, these beautiful Aussie oats are carefully kept from contact with gluten-containing products or equipment, and undergo rigorous gluten testing at every step of production – our oats test to <3ppm, which effectively equates to ‘0’ or ‘nil gluten detected’, though Australia’s labelling laws remain the same and we are still unable to legally use the term ‘Gluten-Free’ on our packaging. For more information and to see our latest test results, please visit our compliance page.
GF Aussie Oats are as true blue Australian as they could be – they’re grown in Western Australia, then processed, tested in Brisbane, packaged, labelled and shipped right here on the Darling Downs, Toowoomba, Queensland. Even our packaging is Australian made! We’re so proud to be the first in Australia to be producing GF oats, and we’re delighted to present them to you. We hope you’ll enjoy them as you #buyaussiemade
This is the perfect segue into our Monthly Special, because this month is all about our GF Aussie Oats!!! As I’ve said, they’re not quite ready to launch but when they are we’ll update this post with all the details 👀

By artfully choosing your toppings – like protein-building nuts, antioxidant-packed berries, and bioactive honey – you can build a bowl that can lower blood sugar and cholesterol, aid digestion and promote both gut and bowel health, all while containing plenty of fibre to provide a filling meal that will keep you going for hours.
