Rob’s Famous!

We’ve always listed the country of origin of all of our fresh produce. We think it’s so important to know where your food is coming from. Our customers want to know that their fruits and vegetables are grown and harvested locally. That’s why we love the new Southern Forests Initiative to label all WA fresh produce. It’s a great way to give recognition to the growers of amazing produce plus it assures our customers that their food is grown in good conditions.


Rob was recently in the West Australian talking about this new initiative. He said, “Customers will like seeing the region the food is from – with the remoteness of the area, the growing conditions in the Southern Forest region are a lot better”

A Traditional Christmas Meal!

Christmas just isn’t the same without the little traditional touches that make this season so special. For this year’s celebrations we have the perfect go-to traditional Chrissy recipe that will keep your family and friends begging for more!

You can never go wrong with a glazed ham dish, it’s everyone’s favourite during the festive time and plus, you can’t get any more traditional than glazed ham on Christmas day. So, why ham on this day? Apparently, serving ham arises from the pre-Christian Norse tradition of killing a boar and serving it to honour Freya, one of the Norse Gods. In AD times, St. Stephen, whose feast day is December 26th, is often depicted as serving a boar’s head as an offering. And, as often happens when diverse traditions converge around the feasting table: Christmas ham was born.

Now that you know why we have ham on the big day, try this delicious Maple Honey Mustard Glazed Ham recipe by It only takes 15 minutes to prepare and it’s super easy!

Make sure to have this festive favourite on your table this year. At Peaches we have you covered with our Barossa Fine Foods Ham or if you want to stray from tradition, there’s a huge range of Barossa rolled roasts. Come in today to see the range!

Garlic is nothing to sneeze at!

It’s that time of year again, when everyone around you starts sniffling and complaining about a scratchy throat… yes, it’s cold season!

With the average adult catching 2-4 colds each year, you need to do everything you can to avoid picking up the nasty virus. We’ve all heard the saying, “you are what you eat” and when it comes to preventing colds, there’s nothing more true!

When we’re sick, we don’t search for a pill bottle to help us recover, we go looking for our favourite herb, garlic! Garlic contains a whole list of vitamins that all promote healthy immunity. Garlic has high levels of vitamin C, although it may not be as much as citrus fruit, just 3 cloves of garlic will provide you with 5% of your daily intake. Vitamin C is important in maintaining cell walls as well as acting as an antioxidant to flush out toxins in the body.

The real cold fighting compound in this super food is allicin. But what is allicin? It’s what gives garlic it’s ‘hot’ flavour for one, but it’s also what makes garlic an antibacterial and an antifungal which is what helps kill colds!

The best way to get the most allicin out of your garlic is to chop, crush or chew up a clove as it is! We love garlic as much as the next person, especially roasted in a delicious pasta sauce, but the thought of chewing on raw cloves of garlic isn’t the most appealing idea.

That’s why we love Healthy Green Kitchen’s favourite sore throat remedy, garlic honey! When garlic has been infused with honey, you can barely tell that it’s garlic! All you need to do is get yourself some fresh garlic (we love fresh Tasmanian garlic) and some raw honey, Elixir Honey is a store favourite.

The Organic Food Revolution is here!

Organic food is not a passing foodie fad, it is here to stay! The organic food trend has been on the rise for years now, with the growing concern for what’s good for you.

The list of benefits of organic food continues to grow, with number one being the delicious, intense flavour that makes all non organic foods pale in comparison. The soil quality produces stronger, healthier plants. Our organic heirloom tomatoes, like many.

Before we get in to the long, long list of why we love organic so much, let’s clear up what ‘organic’ actually means. Organic foods are grown without the use of any synthetic chemicals, pesticides, artificial fertilisers and not genetically modified.

So what does that actually mean? It means organic produce is better for your health! Organic food is free of toxins that are found in pesticides and other chemicals. Which also means that harmful chemicals are not running off into the soil or water supply so they are helping to preserve the environment. The side effects of genetically modified food still aren’t known. Be safe than sorry when it comes to genetically modified food and avoid it all together.

Studies have shown that organic foods actually have a higher nutritional content than non organic foods! Typically organically grown produce is higher in iron, vitamin C, magnesium and phosphorus.  This is because the soil used in organic crops is managed with sustainable practices.

At Peaches, we source the best of the best organic foods. Whether you want organic fruits and vegetables, meats or cosmetics, Peaches has it! Check out our huge range of organic foods here or come in store and have a chat about them to any of our friendly staff!
