Admit it! How many times have you looked at a turnip and thought “Sod it. I can’t be bothered peeling and chopping that beast.” Innovative food enterprise Mash Direct offer an easy and healthy solution for time conscious consumers with no washing, peeling, steaming or mashing … no pots and pans to clean, just the taste and texture of great homemade food.
Mash Direct produce a varied and delicious range of potato and vegetable accompaniments, from traditional family favourites such as their award-winning mashed potato to contemporary recipes including their new vegetable burgers.
Fifth generation farmer Martin, and his wife and business partner Tracy Hamilton had been successfully growing and selling vegetables for over twenty years before they diversified their farming business by preparing the vegetables as you would at home. This kitchen table enterprise became Mash Direct in 2004 and has gone on to win over 100 awards and accolades
Mash Direct select older heritage varieties for taste rather than appearance. The vegetables are steam cooked to retain nutrients and flavour, then gently prepared and packaged on the farm. Mash Direct products are 100% gluten free, do not contain any artificial colourings or preservatives and are suitable for microwave and oven heating.
