Hello from Bakarindi Bush Foods!
Some years ago we (Manda and Ian Gentle) moved from Woolgoolga to follow our passion for native plants. This led us to the back of Corindi Beach to a property that has been in our friend's family for over 100 years. After a major clean up (still ongoing) we planted our first three Finger Limes along with other native fruit trees and some exotics.
We now have hundreds of Finger Lime trees, 60 Riberries, along with a small patch of Lemon and Aniseed Myrtle. The planting is ongoing with Davidson Plums added. The garlic and chillies used in our products are also grown on the property.
Our home is situated on a small rise with views from the kitchen (where the creating occurs) over the trees to the ocean. We have always made homemade relishes, chutneys and jams and now we make them with the addition of the Australian bush foods. We love explaining the benefits of eating native foods especially that all our products contain NO artificial colourings, flavours or preservatives.
