Nestled away on Bargara Rd, one little shop is undergoing a huge make-over with more than a change of name.
One Little Farm is the exciting culmination of Kate and Anthony Rehbein’s extensive farming expertise and passion for agri-tourism.
The pair bought Lavish Flowers late last year and merged it with their successful farming and food manufacturing businesses, Hummock Produce and BundaGinga, to create One Little Farm.
Kate said she wanted a new name and brand that perfectly summarised what they do.
“Whether you’re planning a special celebration or your ritual Sunday spread, One Little Farm stocks the freshest ingredients for your kitchen table,” Kate said.
“We offer everything from fresh flowers and vases to gifts, produce boxes and packaged fine foods, including BundaGinga products.”
Farming is in their blood
The Rehbein family are fourth generation farmers; they know the importance of not only growing good produce, but also being able to supply it locally.
Anthony said the appetite for locally grown food and flowers was continuing to grow.
“If you want a farmers’ market with fresh local food, One Little Farm is the place to go,” he said.
“We grow a wide variety of flowers, fruit, vegetables and micro-herbs for the shop, and we have the wholesale business where we supply a lot of cafes and restaurants around town. And, as the business grows, we hope to have a pop-up market at our farm every so often.”
A huge selection of produce
But One Little Farm won’t just have Rehbein-grown produce available.
Anthony said they source everything from figs and limes to potatoes; all locally grown.
“Anything that is seasonal – we hope to have,” he said.
“While some shoppers expect produce to be available year-round, our main emphasis is on food grown and sourced locally.
“This helps reduce the impact on the environment, supports local jobs and ensures our produce is the freshest you can get.
“We’re pleased to have a dedicated group of growers already on board.
“We really just want to use what is already on offer in the region and highlight it to the community and visitors.”
Anthony invited locals to drop into the Bargara Road shop and see the changes he and Kate were making.
“The shop’s transformation is well underway, and we can’t wait to get our signage in place. There will be more flair to the store in coming weeks,” he said.
And if One Little Farm’s new logo is anything to go by, with its vibrant colours and eye-catching theme, the shop, found at 133 Bargara Road, will stock some beautiful food and lavish flowers.
