The Garden

Amongst the gum trees on the banks of the Edward River, lies the Spice Shelf’s own herb garden. The garden bed is made up of both natural loams and clay, with a good load of farm manure.

Lemongrass, garlic, chillis, coriander, lemons and kaffir limes are all grown on the farm, free from any harmful chemicals. Growing these ingredients on the farm removes the need for excess handling and prolonged cold storage of herbs and fruits prior to processing. As a result, ingredients are fresh and rich in vitamins and minerals.

Chillis
Growing all year around under the protection of a green house, chillis grow abundantly on the farm. These are used in all of the fresh curry pastes.

Lemongrass
Lemongrass is known for its aromatic, citrus flavour with a trace of ginger. Its common name is Citronella. Lemongrass is well associated with Asian cooking. Here, it is found in the Red Curry, Panang Curry and Green Curry pastes.

Garlic
Almost all of The Spice Shelf’s products contain fresh garlic from the garden. It grows during the winter months in an enriched clay soil.

Kaffir Lime
Kaffir lime is both a herb and fruit. The zest of the lime and the leaves are used in the Spice Shelf’s Red, Panang and Green curries. The leaves have a strong citrus and aromatic appeal.

Coriander
Coriander can be found in all of The Spice Shelf’s curry pastes and mixes. It is used in both a dry and fresh form.
