For those on an alcohol detox, Mock Red Hill also has a still and sparkling apple juice and very newly added addition of a sparkling pear juice. These sparkling variants taste nothing like the bottles you find in supermarkets- instead they are genuinely like liquified fruit with a spritz, so again you are not just tasting sugar. "That tastes like a pear," were the first words from my husband when he sipped on the sparkling pear juice, and that simple description is the really best way to articulate what we were tasting!
The Bio-Dynamically farmed fruit used to make these beverages are also used in an ingenious snack food. Rather than offering dehydrated or dried fruit to snack on at the office, Mock Red HIll have a Totally Pure Fruits range of freeze dried fruits which ensures that each piece of fruit still contains fibre and almost all of its nutrients. Crunching into these freeze dried snacks was a completely different experience from the soggy dried fruit that I was used to. Again, these apple chips actually tasted like apple, which is so much more than a standard sweet taste.
All of these products are available for tasting at the Farm Gate store which is run by the smiling Sheryn Mock who continues to innovate by pushing for the successful sparkling juice line, and where we also met her dad Neville Mock- the 4th generation orchardist whose fruit speaks for itself. The Farm Gate store has recently been renovated and is open all year round.
