La Madre Bakery
We work hard to produce breads full of gracious goodness and take the time to look after the people in our business and the environment we work and live within.La Madre Italian for 'The Mother' represents the generations-old mother culture that we use to start our sourdough breads. Using nothing more adaptable than our bakers' hands, each loaf is created with loving attention. We uphold the traditional techniques of artisanal baking to ensure each loaf or sweet treat is of the highest quality.We scour the land for the finest ingredients using freshly milled flours, filtered water, pure sea salt and natural air borne yeast. Where possible, we use tasty local heroes like the Kalamata olives in our Olive Sourdough, sourced right here in Victoria from the wonderful Mount Zero. And, of course, it is a definite 'No' to nasty preservatives and additives.
Leighgrove Olives is a boutique olive grove, totally family owned and operated by the White family. The farm is located in the delightful township of Inverleigh, just 26km west of Geelong. Located on a picturesque stretch of the Barwon River, the 4500 tree olive grove is producing extra virgin olive oil of the finest quality. The cool climate conditions with a long, slow ripening period, together with the rich pastoral soils, results in oil of particularly deep, full-flavoured characteristics.
