Toorak Village locals have been swarming to Yardmill Grocery & Kitchen like bees to honey.  The latest addition to the Toorak Road shopping strip prides itself on fresh, locally sourced, ready made food for the time poor, with a monthly rotating selection of nutritious and indulgent  items.

It is the realisation of a vision that began six years ago for mother-daughter duo Tracey Sisson and Georgia Smail.  Both gave up corporate jobs – Tracey as a lawyer, and Georgia in marketing  – to make their dream happen.  They spent two years researching as far afield as LA and New York, and roaming farmers markets to find local suppliers.

Tracey says:

We know where all our food comes from, because we have built relationships with the farmers who supply our produce. The people connection bit of bringing this to life has been a joy.

The menu was developed in collaboration with nutritionist Bannie Williams to ensure the health conscious and those with dietary intolerances are well catered for.

Y mill dips

In the ‘open yard’ you’ll find a delicious range of salads and take home meal items like lamb, pomegranate and quinoa crusted barramundi, and felafel wraps. The ‘holding yard’ has things like vacuum packed meals, home made dips, bircher muesli pots and desserts; and the ‘barn’ has express items like home made nut butter, Melbourne City Rooftop Honey, gluten free bread and muesli.

In the drinks trough there’s cold-pressed juices and locally made almond milk, while smoothies and coffee are made to order.  And then there’s the ‘sweet fodder’ range, which includes refined sugar free snacks and desserts.

Almost all the food is produced onsite, which Tracey says is essential to quality control and freshness. And there’s no trans fats or processed vegetable oils allowed in Tracey’s kitchen – only coconut oil, butter or ghee are used.

In the not too distant future customers will be able to be place orders online, and  from October delivery will be available twice a week within a 10 kilometre radius.

Whether you’re looking for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a drink or snack, Yardmill Grocery & Kitchen is your one stop shop for great healthy food to go.
