We now grow our own strawberries in Dural, NSW.
Why? Because unlike most strawberries that are available to purchase, our strawberries can be picked at peak ripeness which allows our gelato & sorbet to taste the best that it possibly can.

As we're only supplying ourselves - there's no pressure of getting paid per KG or long transport times - we can make sure we pick once they've had enough time to grow.
