The Toffee Factory & a bit on the side
You may have seen our goodies at outlets Australia wide....and it's all made here! Sticky business since 1996, Jon and Gill of JJs have been tormenting the sweet-toothed population with their gooey goodies. It began as a small pot of ideas bubbling away in the goldfields and over several years the addiction has spread throughout Australia. A huge range of flavoured toffees and nutty brittles are made in the traditional English manner from a timeless family recipe.
Do you fancy a bit on the side? Also home to the famous "a bit on the side" range of gourmet sauces, preserves, chutneys, salsas, tapenades, dressings and olives. The impressive range is stocked by gourmet stores across Australia and you can taste it all here. Try new lines as they are released, all handmade from the finest of available produce. Everybody loves a bit on the side and you know it has to be good or we wouldn't let you try it!
Elephants Rock Cider Company Made in Denmark time - but worth the wait! Keen to keep up with worldwide trends, Jon and Gill have recently set up Denmark's first cider factory, the building doubled in size to incorporate crushing and pressing machinery, tanks, bottling, storage and cellar door tasting. A light fresh crisp taste has been created from Great Southern fruits, making an easy drinking alternative for a long cool refreshing drink. A fun quirky logo of 2 cool elephants on a nearby beach reflects the lighthearted humour you will experience on your visit, whilst offering a great memento of the region to take home. The factory is located on a picturesque rural property in William Bay, is a place where visitors are welcome to stay a while, everything is made on site and you may even be able to watch the little elves hard at work though the viewing windows.
There are lots of tasting samples to tempt you and products are available in varying quantities and styles of packaging, designed either to take home as the perfect gift or to eat now - if you can't wait.
You're welcome to stay and enjoy the lovely surroundings, maybe have a cider in the garden, there's a cubby house for the kids too, bring a picnic if you wish, followed of course by one of Australia's biggest and best (ice-cream) cones.
Open daily 930am to 430pm, viewing, free tasting, sales.
