Di Ridge lives on a sheep station with her husband Phillip, southwest of Bourke. As drought and a wool recession took hold in 2001 , everyone was discovering other avenues of income and Di wondered what my contribution could be. Di had made a salad dressing – a recipe that was given to her- which was much admired and my friends suggested I make it commercially.
So after several sleepless nights pondering her ability to find the time, she produced her first batch - in Coca Cola bottles! In the intervening years, although it is still personally handmade, the business has grown successfully with shop & mail order sales all over Australia.
