Autumn change

Range Change

We’ve been receiving many plaintive pleas for the popular Elgin Apple Juice, which hasn’t been available for a while. Don’t worry, it hasn’t disappeared along with the Arctic Ice. As soon as the first pressings are available, we’ll have it back in stock, so hold tight.

Enchantrix have relocated their production from Kwazulu-Natal to Cape Town, and some products will be intermittently unavailable while their production gets back to normal.

The Soap Lady’s soaps, hand made in Fish Hoek, are back in stock again, and we also have a wider range of Meadowsweet herbs and teas.

Wellbeing Natural Medicine’s breads have moved, and changed names. They’re now La Petite Boulangerie, situated a few doors further down in Muizenberg, and Hasan Gauld has decided to focus more on his handmade artisanal breads.

After the drought comes the floods. We’re overflowing with honey again, as Honeywood are back in stock after their devastating fire, and we’re also offering Bloublommetjies honeycomb, a real delicacy. Honey from Docke Farm, from right here in Noordhoek, is also available again in limited quantities.

Finally, organic cornflakes and organic oatmilk (both sadly from a little further afield) are also back in stock again.

The Cuban Example

After the demise of the Soviet Union, Cuba went through a localised “Peak Oil” experience. It’s come out of it a model for organic farming worldwide, as this week’s video shows.


We support a number of small suppliers, the kind who don’t get bailed out by governments during a downturn. Many are struggling with cashflow, and are asking us to pay sooner than before. Help us help them, and ensure you continue to have access to a wide range of local products, by making your payments in good time. Remember that payments are due when your order is placed – late payments have an impact on everyone down the line.

Health Path

Grateful thanks to The Health Path, who, until last week, were our Hout Bay collection point.
