It's been wonderful to watch the support and awareness grow since the Buy From the Bush Campaign started in mid October. An incredible movement which has led to many rural based businesses being discovered. It's also so exciting to see the support given to the rural community. A very simple concept and yet one that is having an incredible ripple effect. Its wonderful to see our fellow business friends celebrate the support too.
To support this fabulous Campaign, I have listed below some fabulous Rural based businesses that I love. Many I have bought from and can personally recommend the wonderful customer service provided along with products.
Others are, of course, good friends- rural based women who inspire me and I admire greatly for the unique businesses they have created.
To make it easy, Ive given a brief description and linked to websites.
Please also take a minute to check out our fabulous list of Stockists- both city and country. These are small businesses and regardless of their locations, they are all fabulous supporters of Australian businesses.
With Christmas fast approaching, please take some time to explore these favourites and I would highly recommend following the Buy From The Bush as they continue to share what talents lie out here in the bush. The #buyfromthebush hashtag is also a great directory for scrolling through and discovering lots of goodies xx
Many Thanks, Kylie x
