I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

Health benefits of pumpkin seeds (image from Facebook)
Cycling the rail trail between Myrtleford and Bright provides one with the opportunity to visit interesting farm gate experiences such as the Australian Pumpkin Seed Factory. The bike friendly farm shop is a treasure trove of healthy and interesting taste sensations.
On entering the shop we were greeted warmly and given an informative tour of the product range. The young girl who served us clearly loves working at the Australian Pumpkin Seed Factory and was a passionate advocate for the health benefits of consuming Styrian pumpkin seeds. She also gave us some great recipe tips and we were able to taste as much as we wanted of the different flavoured pumpkin seeds, oils, dukkahs and nut products.
The shop also stocks hand crafted soaps, lotions, preserves and produce from the local area. The onsite artisan flour mill produces gluten free flours and meals made from pumpkin seeds, hazelnuts, walnuts and pecans. The products are available online and at specialty stores Australia wide.
