Lydia's food journey started when she was very young cooking at home. Growing up in a family of 6 she would try to get out of milking the cows by opting to make dinner instead. From here her passion for food grew.
She studied here in the Waikato and has over 10 years of experience in hospitality. After having kids she thought the hospitality lifestyle was not ideal with a young family so pursued her dream to work for herself.
"I would never have dreamed about making dairy and gluten-free treats for a living but I discovered them when my daughters experienced sensitivities while I was breastfeeding. I eliminated it out of my diet and become obsessed with making them for myself," she says. She took the risk to turn it into a business and now makes delicious raw treats to sell online direct to her customers or through local stockists.
