Sue Heward

Singing Magpie Produce

After 28 years of global travel and an executive career in Public health, I found myself deeply embedded in the Melbourne rat-race, living an urban lifestyle but desperate to share the life I knew as a child with my partner and young daughter. So in early 2016 we returned to our 100 year old family orchard in the Riverland, South Australia and Singing Magpie Produce was born.

Singing Magpie brings delicious, high-quality products to consumers who care where their food is coming from. We keep it simple, we don’t skimp on quality and we care about our ecological footprint. We use low impact farming methods, focusing on waste minimisation and on providing access for customers to seasonal Australian produce.

Our Heward orchard customers are a select group of quality-conscious consumers, including Maggie Beer Products and Beerenberg. Our move into semi-dried products aims to offer unique Australian products to the market and minimise our product waste. We started small with our semi-dried figs and quinces. This has now been expanded to include sticky quince syrup and figs, Fig leaf and Rose tea, unique Australian Giftboxes and other local sun dried produce enrobed in premium chocolate couverture."
