We believe we should eat the food we grow.
We are grain and sheep farmers from the Wheatbelt - amongst other grains, we grow world class oats and love them. Oats have been growing in Western Australia for over 100 years. Now, on average, 650,000 tonnes are produced each year in our region predominately shipped overseas. Western Australians generally eat oats grown in other states - why? Ingredients traditionally used in granola also grow right across the state of Western Australia including honey, nuts, seeds & olive oil. So, with that winning combination, Merre Granola was born.
Sourcing premium fresh ingredients from fellow farmers in our state, we hand blend Western Australian Wheatbelt freshly rolled oats, Wheatbelt honey, seeds, nuts and other premium produce to make a premium granola. You will taste the difference!
We aim to offer a quality, hand made breakfast cereal celebrating Western Australia in just one bowl of golden goodness.
We also have a strong interest in supplying locally grown chickpeas to WA.

More About Our Farm
We are a broadacre mixed grain farm & sheep farm in the Central Wheatbelt. This means we grow many different grains including wheat, canola, lupins, oats (of course!) & on occasions, chickpeas on large open paddocks.
Specifically, we grow Bannister & the Bilby variety of oats depending on the season, the paddock and soil conditions. We'd really love to do further research into determining which variety is best for breakfast cereal.
We want to work towards rolling our own oats too.
Our sheep also keep us entertained & busy with wool and meat production whilst complementing our cropping program.
Brand - Behind the Bird
Surprising to some, Wrens are not just found in the Great Southern but infact across the state including the Blue-breasted Fairy-Wren right in our backyard of Merredin. Just like Merre’s golden bird the Wren, our ingredients are also found right across all regions of Western Australia. Through illustration, the brand also captures WA wildflowers, breathtaking sunsets & the oat plant from our region reflecting its beauty, uniqueness and its food produce.
