From paddock to drinking straw, watch our harvest!

The past few days on the farm have been rich in experience, memories and allowed us to recharge, reflect and pause. We often underestimate how important these pauses are in the entrepreneurial journey 🙌

While we've been waiting for the 21/22 harvest season to start, we are super excited to announce Alexis and myself received our Permanent Residency from the Australian Government! 🇦🇺🥳

This year has been super stressful for us, with no clear vision on our projects because of our visa status... We are now on our way to become Australians and we couldn't have hope for better news!!

While mother nature does her magic with our little rye plants, if you're currently looking for straws, please have a look at our sister business Compostable alternatives! We have these amazing grass and coconut straws, both also byproduct of the agriculture. We're also excited to see our range our certified home compostable products growing (link in our bio)!!
