Meet the Makers
Green Anchor was founded in 2019 by James Wallis, a British born chef on a mission to reduce food waste with delicious food. James has run various restaurants, including the 2 AA Rosette ‘Room’ Restaurant in Manchester, and whilst at the Michelin rated ‘The Milestone’ in Sheffield, he took part in the Channel 4 TV show ‘Ramsay’s Best Restaurant’. James is on a mission to provide sustainable food solutions using creative thinking; he works closely with suppliers to secure amazing ingredients that are traditionally overlooked, such as excess produce, imperfect looking but great tasting fruit and vegetables, or by-products from food production. Green Anchor makes truly delicious condiments from surplus ingredients that would otherwise be wasted. Green Anchor believes we can change the world with the food we eat and plants one tree for every product sold.

Sonoma’s story begins in the late 1940s, with a little boy’s adventures in a country bakery. As a young boy, Kerry Connole would visit his grandparents at their Busy Bee general store in the NSW country town of Bellata. Today, the much-loved Sonoma brand is synonymous with excellence. A dad and his two sons who knew nothing about bread took on the challenge and with years of hard work, undying passion and unyielding determination, they’ve created Australia’s most respected artisan sourdough bakery. 18 years, 36 hours It takes time to handcraft one loaf of Sonoma sourdough. Every loaf of Sonoma sourdough contains sustainable flour, filtered water, sourdough starter and sea salt. It also contains passion, soul, hard work and integrity, fed with love by the bakers who make each one by hand. Our sourdough bread is made with chemical free sustainable flour grown in the central west region of NSW. Grown in nutrient rich soil and creating a more wholesome and nutritional grain, the grains are entirely traceable from paddock to mill. Naturally leavened and slowly fermented. Containing no commercial yeasts. Chemical free sustainable flour. It’s a simple recipe for enduring quality.

The Fairley family goes back a long way in the history of Picton. In fact we have been living in the same location in Picton since 1855 when John and Margaret Fairley who are my great, great, great grandparents arrived on the “Simonds” from Ireland. Today, we currently operate a dairy farm that runs about 145 head of cattle, which are a Freisian/Jersery cross. The dairy farm itself is on roughly 300 acres, which is situated in a valley five minutes out of the Picton township. Our milk comes straight from our cows to the plant and then out to our customers (48 hour window). Milk is a bit like fruit, it bruises easily and the quality can be lowered if it is not treated carefully. Our milk is extremely fresh and therefore the shelf life is longer, up to sixteen days on the label but it actually keeps longer than that. We are constantly monitoring the quality of the feed and health of the cows to ensure that the milk produced is the best you can buy. We believe all these factors will combine to create a product that will make “the difference you can taste”.
Camilleri Berries is a family run business that delivers the freshest, highest quality produce from farm to market. The Camilleri’s come from three generations of farmers - Patrick's grandfather started growing strawberries in Horsley Park on the outskirts of Sydney, and till today, it remains the largest of their 9 family farms. While specialising in the family tradition of berries, the Camilleri’s business has expanded over the years to grow almost every fruit and veg. What they don’t grow on their own land, they source from their neighbours. The Camilleri’s produce is well known across some of biggest farmers markets in the country, including Epic Farmers Market in Canberra (the largest food market in the Southern Hemisphere). They also have a loyal following at the farmers markets in Kiama, Wollongong and Berry. From paddock to plate, the Camilleri’s are delivering the absolute freshest produce available, with every piece of fruit and veg having been picked just hours or days before arriving into homes across Sydney.
Peyton Blu Royale
We're a family owned and operated Fresh Australian/NZ Seafood business. The name Peyton Blu Royale was decided on as Peyton is our daughters name.

Pepe Saya Butter Co started in 2010, with the dream of making a beautiful tasting butter. Made in a unique round pat with the iconic Pepe Saya head, the first rounds were sold at Carriageworks Farmers Markets in November 2010. Our focus has always been on provenance and transparency. Pierre Issa (Pepe) is a man dedicated to changing the landscape of butter consumption in Australia. He is one of just a handful of artisans producing cultured butter in the country and to make Pepe Saya even more special, all the butter is made by hand. Pepe’s focus is on influencing chefs to support Australian made butter and supply it in the kitchens and tables across the country, and set the benchmark for premium Australian butter. At Pepe Saya we are passionate about provenance and relationships with our farmers. Our cream is sourced from six farms across NSW & Victoria. When the cream arrives from the farms to our creamery in Tempe, we heat up the cream and inoculate it with a lactobacillus culture, which is high in diacetyl. We allow the cream to culture for up to 4 weeks, allowing for a full buttery taste and slight tang to develop and create the unique flavour of our cultured butter.
Australian Honey Cellars
Australian Honey Cellars is based in Harden within the Hilltops region of NSW and is operated by Loch and Kris Jarrad. Loch has been a beekeeper for 20 Years. Working with nearly 300 hives Loch travels throughout NSW and Victoria to produce different varieties of honey. Our aim is to show Australians and tourists just our wonderful and diverse Australian Honeys are. This will mean that we also buy from other beekeepers in different areas. We also support the Australian agricultural industry by having our hives available for pollination purposes.
We are a family business that creates flavoured macadamias and nut butter products. We started our business after having our first baby, as we both have a personal interest in native and locally grown Australian foods. Our nuts are grown and harvested on our family farm at the Mid North Coast of NSW located between South and Middle Brother Mountains. The region is known for its rich red soils and ancient sub-tropical rainforests which are ideal conditions to grow our tasty varieties of macadamias. After the droughts and bushfires over the past year and now the shut down of markets in Sydney, we are still excited to provide our nuts to customers when we harvest later this year.
Enokido Miso was founded by Shinji Hiraoka who was one of the first Japanese chefs in Sydney (1982). Miso making is an integral part of life in Japan with traditional techniques and recipes being passed on for generations. Today, the Hiraoka family continue that tradition, handcrafting miso in Sydney following traditional techniques and carrying the name of Shinji’s mother. Passionate about organics and high quality, Enokido Miso is handmade using only the finest of Australian grown organic ingredients. While the majority of miso sold in Japan today has been pasteurised to extend its shelf life, the miso of Enokido Miso remains unpasteurised.
The Gourmet Potato
“I didn’t know potatoes had flavour until I bought yours. So delicious.” … “They are very different from what I normally buy – they are lovely. Delicious.” … … “I’m from Ireland and at last discovered real potatoes in Australia – yours are fantastic.” In 2008, The Sydney Morning Herald headlined Garry Kadwell of Kadwell Potatoes as the farmer “who put the flavour back into spuds.” In 2017, the Australian Government declared Kadwell Potato Co as the NSW Grand Champion Landcare Sustainability for Innovation and Management. In 2020, the SMH Good Food Guide CITI Chef of the Year 2019 Lennox Hastie of Firedoor Surrey Hills nominated The Gourmet Potato Kadwell for the “delicious Produce Awards” which unearth and champion Australia’s best and most innovative primary produce and producers with an emphasis on provenance, seasonality and sustainable production methods. In 2020, two special dinners were held at Federal Parliament House with potatoes from The Gourmet Potato Kadwell specially chosen and with the flavours declared “outstanding” Traditionally, The Gourmet Potato Kadwell sells through the growers’ markets but in these new times new ways of distribution to ensure households these unique potatoes full of flavour. How do they differ? - With mass market potatoes, sauces are added to provide flavour whereas with The Gourmet Potato Kadwell potatoes, you cook these to draw out their flavours. “These potatoes are so good I ate them all for lunch and my husband missed out at dinnertime. This week, two bags please so my husband doesn’t miss out.” … “Everything you said about these potatoes’ flavour and texture was true – so I need some more.”
3 Green Peas
Nothing compared to my mum’s spanakopita. The light crunch as I bit into the layers and layers of fillo pastry, the dense, fresh leafy spinach, lightly tossed in olive oil, fresh garlic and cracked pepper, that perfectly balanced the salty yet creamy Greek feta...So I made it my mission to show the world what spanakopita should taste like. That’s when 3 Green Peas was born. We specialise in traditional Sheep Feta and Vegan Feta spanakopita, both with Gluten Free options. We also make Vegan and GF Moussaka, infused with pomegranate for that extra bite. Since the COVID-19 disruption, I have received feedback from customers on how they are needing more easy, wholesome meal options for their family. As more and more people are isolating, and working from home, my mission is to help take the strain off families at mealtime by offering something they can heat-and-eat with little effort. So, we’ve extended our food offering to include meat dishes. With taste and nutrition being at the forefront of what we do, you can now purchase chicken, corn and cheddar meat balls in tomato salsa, as well as beef, pea and basil bolognese.

Vannella Cheese was born in Conversano, Puglia – along with most of our family! Conversano is also the birthplace of our burrata, a fresh, stretched curd cheese that is filled with creamy stracciatella and then hand-tied. At 16 years old, Dad (apprenticed to a cheese maker in Conversano), learnt how to hand stretch curds for this cheese the traditional way. Over the following years Dad worked in some of Italy’s best cheese factories, but he always returned to Conversano; at first it was to marry Mum, and later to open their business - Caseificio Vannella. Eventually, we, my sister and I, were also born in Conversano. When we moved to Australia, we brought a little bit of Conversano with us - we brought the cheese. In fact, we moved our lives around this cheese, first setting up in Cairns to be close to the dairy herds and buffalo and later moving to the city, to bring the fresh cheese closer to the tables where it was being served. We embraced Australia and Australia embraced us. At Vannella we now make a variety of fresh, stretched curd cheeses that sing the traditions of our birthplace, along with cheeses and dairy products that we have learnt from the people we have met in Australia. We approach each with the same care for quality and authenticity.
Grima's Farm Fresh Produce
After arriving from Malta in the 1960s, Joseph and Lily Grima started a small 10 acre farm in Horsley Park. Today, 50 years on, their sons', Sam and Steve, with their wive’s, Theresa and Sharon are continuing their parents legacy. Each day they are up at the crack of dawn, growing some of the most amazing seasonal produce we have seen in a now expanded, 40 acre farm. Servicing some of Sydney’s finest restaurants and farmers markets with their produce, the Grima family have a genuine love in knowing that local families are enjoying their fresh produce. The love and care they put into their produce was recognised when they won the winner of the ‘Produce Grower of the Year’ in 2017 and the finalist in 2019. This award winning produce is well known for its delicious and unique radish and beetroot varieties, baby fennel, heirloom carrots and colourful cauliflower, kale and rainbow chard. In the warmer months they also grow zucchini, corn, capsicum, squash and eggplant.
