Visit Australian Pumpkin Seed Company, an artisan oil and pumpkin seed factory - the only one in Australia.
Discover a truly unique experience in the Alpine Region - Australia's first and only pumpkin seed growers and producers of fine artisan oils where Australian grown pumpkin seeds and locally grown nuts are turned into many mouth-watering products.
Visit the shop and educational centre where you will be taken on a tantalising journey through hundreds of years of history; from the growing of special pumpkins, the making of pumpkin seed oil, expansion into the production of small batch nut oils and the coming alive of the Slovenian family heritage
Beginning in 2002, the West family began Australia's only pumpkin seed industry by planting some special Styrian pumpkin seeds to make pumpkin seed oil, the company is now evolving with the addition of The Artisan Oil Mill for the community.
Following the family traditions of the artisan handcrafted methods of pressing seeds and nuts, apricot kernels, hazelnuts and walnuts are being traditionally pressed to produce fine oils and flour/meals to the delight of visitors.
Be taken on a free guided tasting tour of products following the journey from paddock to process to plate.
Gluten free, vegetarian and vegan friendly products. All products are natural, healthy and as well as being tasty can also provide great nutritional benefits to your everyday meals. Try the variety of flour/meals made from pumpkin seeds, hazelnuts and walnuts in your breakfast, lunch, dinner or desserts.
Call in for something with a difference; see the pumpkin patch growing during the summer months and learn about the growing and pollination of pumpkins. Taste a variety of chocolate coated delights or sit down for a cup of the 'best coffee in the valley' and experience the unique and friendly service.
