Then in early 2013, things got serious. The brothers made their own cold-pressed juicing machines and expanded their range of juices to incorporate many other varied and vibrant local Western Australian fruits, always producing a juice from fruit sourced directly from a local grower.
All of the juices are hand bottled from cold-pressed and (almost all) locally grown Western Australian fruit, as they are committed to supporting local agriculture. That’s why all juices (except one) are Buy West Eat Best certified: Because they contain 100 percent Western Australian fruit and nothing else!
But there’s a nutritional aspect to supporting local growers, too: It’s no good cold-pressing fruit that has been on the back of a truck for days or even weeks on end – the nutrition just won’t be there. Juice needs to come from fruits and vegetables grown in your local area, and direct from a grower so that it is fresh when it is cold-pressed. That is how you get the most enzymes and vitamins.
Today the cold-pressing goodness takes place in Michael Brothers’ micro-juicery in the heart of the Swan Valley. Products include:
- Cloudy Apple
- Green Light
