WIN: A Christmas Hamper from Wanalta Hill Farm - and how YOU can support local producers this Christmas!


Christmas is fast approaching and this year, Australia post is encouraging shoppers to support local businesses. But we're not talking about the local department store chain here - Australia Post has made it easy for everyone to support hardworking farmers, artisans and community minded social enterprises by putting their money where their heart is. 

Where Your Heart Is is a brand new online marketplace that links Good Spender and Farmhouse Direct to allow us to buy directly from these local producers. The website has a huge range of produce, homewares and gifts that directly benefit Australian families and communities in need so that you can give a gift to someone you love that also gives back to others.
Where Your Heart Is makes Christmas shopping a breeze because you can order from the comfort of your own home - and even have gifts delivered straight to the lucky recipient!

And for my fellow bargainistas? Any purchases made on the website between the 18th and 19th of November will have free shipping! I don't know about you, but that's always a drawcard for me and we're already planning on making some orders for some lovely friends of ours.
But because we absolutely
love this initiative - we wanted to share a Christmas Hamper with you! We have 1x Wanalta Hill Christmas Hamper to giveaway which contains homemade shortbread, fruit cake, Christmas chutney, chocolate panforte and an addictive Aussie nut mix. 
Wanalta Hill's Kathy Barlow cooks up delicious festive treats using premium Australian ingredients at her farm in Wanalta, North Central Victoria. Each and every item from Kathy's hamper was given major approval from the SIL Fam (
and I was seriously wishing they were gluten free & Kristy friendly - but they do have gluten free options!!) and it really does feel like the perfect Christmas gift - made with love and no added nasties!

    Every year without fail my mum cooks the most decadent Christmas pudding. Atopped with homemade brandy custard sauce and a raspberry coulee accompaniment. It was my dad's absolute favourite. Since his passing we never fail to celebrate his life by enjoying his most desired Christmas treat, with a raised glass and a glint of tears in our eyes.
