Nourishing Wholefoods

In 2010, Lenni Semmelink started ‘The Happy Sprout’, selling her range of sprouts at the Noosa Farmers Markets. 10 years later, her and partner Shaw Kamada-Laws’ business has morphed into a mouth-watering range of ferments and bone broths that you just can’t help but feel good eating.

Kimchi, sauerkraut, kombucha, water kefir and bone broth are considered to be some of the most effective sources of good bacteria for improving your gut health, and Nourishing Wholefoods produce all five to an excellent standard, with a focus on supporting local growers and keeping their business to a scale which just supplies to a local market.

A lot of thought has gone into the sustainability of what they are doing, including using reusable and returnable packaging. Their products are stocked in plenty of wholefood stores across the coast, and they have a stall at the Kawana Farmers Markets each Saturday and Noosa Farmers Market each Sunday.
