Mother’s Day is just around the corner (May 13!). This year’s Agfest has stalls offering all kinds of treats to spoil mum on her special day.
Fudge Frenzy, located in Pavillion F, might be the perfect gift for the foodie mum.
Jenny Strange from Fudge Frenzy calls her fudge “delicious, affordable and all locally made.”
“As often as possible, and where possible, we like to use Tasmanian ingredients, which is something that we want to be known for” says Jenny.
Fudge Frenzy comes in 26 varieties, so something to suit every mum’s taste
Herbal Teas Australia
Herbal teas are “health in a teacup” that can provide help for a variety of ailments.
Elizabeth Breit is a herbalist and founder of Herbal Teas Australia. She says her teas are “designed to taste good as well as being therapeutic”.
Herbal Teas Australia is giving away a free teapot whenever 3 packets of teas are sold, which may be the perfect gift for your tea-loving mum. Elizabeth can be found in Pavilion G or on the website www.herbalteasaustralia.com.au
Susutomi offers a range of products for the eco-conscious mum.
The Hobart-based business offers a variety of re-usable handmade products. These include produce bags, lunch bags, re-usable straws and re-usable beeswax food wraps. Bronwyn Kidd started the business two years ago because she couldn’t find an alternative to using plastic.
At Agfest 2018, the Susutomi stall can be found at Pavilion H or on their Instagram or Facebook page
Willow Tree Lane
Willow Tree Lane is a small Launceston based-business that supports local craftspeople producing everything from candles to jewellery to concrete pots. "A place to find a special gift for mum", says owner Bec Frerk.
This Mother’s day you could give your candle-lover mum a beautiful gift from Willow Tree Lane. You can find them at Pavillion D or on the Facebook page Willow Tree Lane and Instagram.
You can find something to pamper mum at Saroma.
Founded 20 years ago by aroma-therapist Sara Martin, Saroma sells a range of natural, ethical and handmade products, each one making an ideal gift for mum.
Products sold at Agfest include spot vanishing gel, rosewater, hydrating and firming gel, deodorant, and hay fever, eczema, after sun and muscle relief. Everything’s made with Sara’s own recipes.
“I want to enhance people’s wellbeing with all natural products. It’s much better for them than synthetics.”
The stall can be found in Pavillion I at Agfest, or on their website www.saroma.com.au or on their facebook page Saroma.
Kokedama’s By Kimmy
After 18 months of growing succulents as a hobby, Kim Taylor decided to turn it into the small business Kokedama’s By Kimmy. Kim sells beautiful succulent arrangements, fur pillowcases and felt handbags.
Kim says her products are “all handmade and all Tasmanian. So much love has gone into creating the succulents”.
Kim’s products would make a perfect gift for any mum who loves home décor and pot plants.
