Our passion for fresh, local produce has led us to work with some amazing local farmers, just like Tinaberries, right here in the Bundaberg Region.
During the Bundy season, we source all our strawberries from their local farm for use in our delicious sorbet and gelato.
At Alowishus, we believe that buying local produce doesn’t only help our community grow but it tastes better, too. This is because it can be picked at peak ripeness to ensure the absolute best quality and flavour.
We like to know where our food comes from and love to share the stories of the people who grow it with our customers.
We are truly blessed for having so much amazing produce available right here in Bundy. The Bundaberg Region accounts for around 25% of all of Australia’s produce.
Thank you, Bundaberg! Thank you, Tinaberries!

Some berry tips just for you:
To maximise flavour strawberries should be served at room temperature.
Take them out of the fridge one hour before serving.
Too much water will damage the soft fruit and encourage breakdown.
Only wash berries immediately prior to use.
How to hull strawberries
The hull or calyx is the green leafy top of the strawberry, which is generally removed before cooking or serving. Angle a small sharp knife and cut, in a circular motion, around the green leafy top of the strawberry and into the pale flesh directly underneath.Remove the hull and discard. Wash strawberries under cold running water before using.
