AUSSIE PEPPER GROUND 85G
“I absolutely LOVE Aussie Pepper! It’s grown locally to me, is sustainably farmed and pesticide free, and has the freshest, most aromatic flavour of any pepper I’ve tasted! I take it with me whenever I travel in Australia, as I can honestly say no other pepper ever compares. Of course, everyone who tries it when I cook for them wants to know where to buy it, so I decided we’d better stock it in the Quirky Store. Now everyone can see how pepper should really taste! I know you will love it too.” – Jo
Here’s some interesting facts that explain why this this pepper is so special:
– L and L Pepperfarms in Silkwood (just south of Innisfail, FNQ) are Australia’s only commercial pepper farm – yep that means it’s very likely the pepper on your table has travelled from India or Vietnam, and it probably isn’t very fresh.
– L & L Pepperfarm has two hectares of pepper vines that are harvested annually by hand around October and then sun-dried, producing around 2 tonne annually. Their pepper is so popular that they will often almost run out of pepper before harvesting the next crop!
– The farm is a family business established by 2 brothers, Levis and Louis Campagnolo in the late 1980’s, and since been handed to Donna Campagnolo to run since her father and uncle retired in 2006.
– We love that this pepper is sustainably farmed, 100% natural and pesticide free!!!! YAAAYYY!!!
So good, huh?? Why would anyone not want to support this business and enjoy this delicious Australian Pepper!
