Church Farm General Store

Church Farm General Store was co-founded back in 2013 by Andrew Morris and Amanda Callan. Andrew and Amanda live in an old timber church in Billinudgel with their four boys Banjo, Percy, Reggie & Herb. 

When the couple first bought the church, there wasn’t any trees or plants on the property, so they planted loads of native trees, built a bunch of garden beds and started to grow food for their family. It wasn’t long until they had excess chillies, tomatoes, cucumbers, herbs and flowers that they wanted to make good use of.

With the excess produce, Andrew would roast vegetables over coals with lemon myrtle leaves (this is how some of their sauces were born) and Amanda would infuse the medicinal herbs into oil to make soap with (this is how their soaps were born).

Andrew and Amanda thought it would be fun to build a little roadside stall to sell some of their produce and products to people driving by. People kept asking for more, so the roadside stall blossomed into the idea of an online general store. 

Fast track a few years and and they now have a stall at the local farmers markets, make everything in their soap factory and commercial kitchen (instead of the little shed out the front of the house), and are stocked in a bunch of great stores around the country.

While this little family business has grown, their products are made the same lovingly, small-batch way.  There is no compromise on ingredients and they don’t outsource any of our production, they have a team of good humans putting good vibes into everything they make instead.

The couple are super passionate about growing food, making products from scratch and by hand (without any fake stuff) and most importantly supporting their local farmers.
