Pureharvest – Partner Announcement

Pureharvest logo


I am very excited to have the opportunity to tell you about a new long term partnership for A Fresh Legacy with Australian company Pureharvest.   

Pureharvest specialises in the manufacture and distribution of premium quality organic and natural food and products. Established in 1979 in Prahran Victoria. It began by selling bulk grain out of a little shop and has grown from there. For over 30 years it has been their mission to provide people with nutritious food that enables them to live healthy lives. 

I feel very aligned to the Pureharvest philosophy:

  • They are strongly opposed to genetically modified organisms (GMOs). They will never deliberately use a GMO in their products.
  • They believe organic foods are better for your health, and that of the community
  • They are an Australian owned and operated company and are passionate about the quality of their product range


If you are a regular reader you will already know that we grow as much of our own food as possible in our backyard vegetable garden, we grow it organically, without the use of sprays or chemicals. This ensures that the food we eat is non toxic, naturally full of nutrients as well as high in flavor.  It is my preference for our food grocery purchases to follow the same principles that we use for the garden – unprocessed and produced without the use of chemicals.

I am dairy intolerant. I have been since I was a baby. Over the years I have tried almost every milk alternative on the market.  I settled on Soy Milk as my preferred milk many years ago. Can you guess which brand?? I buy it by the carton (of 12) from the food co-op I have been a member of for the past year. A perfect partnership don’t you think? I love and use their products already and am thrilled to be given the opportunity to become familiar with more of the range. 

Pureharvest were the first Australian company to introduce locally made soybean milk to the Australian market in 1987 and since then have introduced Australia to many other non dairy milk alternatives including rice milk, oat milk, activated almond milk and coco quench. 

New for A Fresh Legacy:

Regular readers here may have noticed that my style of cooking has been evolving in the last year. While I continue to focus on serving my family fresh food, grown from our garden, I have also been on a discovery path for other non-fresh pantry items that I use in cooking.

To date this has led to the following changes:

    • Reduction of sugar in baking – substituting firstly with honey has evolved to switching to Rice Malt Syrup in a bid to reduce the use of refined sugars
    • Replacing oil or butter with coconut oil in baking and cooking 
    • Moving from white rice to brown, black, red and other less refined grains
    • Experimenting with different types of flours

This journey is ongoing for me. I love finding new ways of incorporating healthy food products into recipes for our family meal table.  As I discover some fresh ways to incorporate ingredients from Pureharvest into our menu I will be sharing them here, so that you can introduce them to your family also. You may also like to check out their blog for a great range of healthy recipes if you need some more inspiration.

What does this mean for you?

You will find some fresh new recipes using ingredients from Pureharvest’s organic range.

You may have the opportunity to try selected Pureharvest products for yourself.

Pureharvest will be contributing some interesting content that is based on their areas of expertise. An example of what they will contribute can be seen in this really interesting article on activating food

      Thanks Chrissy, I think so too 🙂 The Tamari is fantastic, I have only just discovered it and love it. I would love to hear which ones you discover that you enjoy. K x

      Thanks Jodie, I think so too. I have just started using the Tamari in the last few weeks and love it.

    i think we’re lucky to have so much evolving choice in shops as consumers now that we can make our pantries as rich and varied – or as focussed and specific – as we desire.

    • Kyrstie Barcak May 23, 2014, 4:17 pm

      Very true E. I love that stores are starting to respond to requests from their customers to stock items of the quality they are seeking.

  • Karen May 23, 2014, 11:32 pm

    Great news Krystie . . . congratulations! I look forward to seeing what comes of your collaboration.

    I am so pleased to read about your new partnership with Pureharvest, who are the makers of the tastiest rice cakes. When one is gluten intolerant, it is great to find a pleasant alternative at lunch time. Well done Kyrstie!

    • Kyrstie Barcak June 11, 2014, 5:52 pm

      Thanks so much Chris. The rice cakes are on my shopping list. I am yet to try them but pleased to hear that you love them.
