About Us

Hi there! Welcome to Bisque, we are Jan (pronounced "Yarn" like the wool Ja!) and Holly, and Bisque is our food baby. A family business has been a dream of ours for a long time and as we both lost our jobs during the Covid crisis, we decided there was no better time make that dream a reality.

"Our mission is to provide food lovers with a healthy and delicious animal protein alternative, which is naturally grown and not genetically modified"


Our Tempeh is hand crafted in small batches, in the heart of Bellingen, on the Mid North Coast of NSW.

Our Tempeh is made from Australian Lupin beans grown  on a family run farm in southern NSW.  We are committed to using local and/or organic ingredients wherever possible.

We are a small, family run business,

dedicated to the environment and healthy living.

We thank you wholeheartedly for your support.


Lupin is a regenerative crop, and commonly used as green manure. This is just one of the reasons we decided to use this powerhouse pulse. Instead of degrading the soil, Lupin crops help to bring nutrients back to the earth.

The variety of Lupin which we use is the Albus Lupin. This cultivar is Alkaloid (bitters) free and specifically grown for human consumption. It has a lovely sweet nutty flavour and the bean is a deep golden colour.

The nutritional benefits of Lupin surpass most other widely consumed legume, including soy. Another reason we love Lupin.

We are currently taking a break from selling our products at the local growers markets in Bellingen, however, we are planning on returning to the markets towards the end of 2024.

Keep an eye on our socials for updates.

We look forward to providing our local community with unpackaged tempeh again soon.

"I have made tempeh, and this example is perfectly made, fulfilling all the criteria traditionally used to assess tempeh quality in Indonesia."

- Tom Rothsey

"I just wanted to let you know, I tried your BBQ tempeh and it was delicious. I can't wait to buy it from my local retailer knowing now that Nourish Grocer stocks it. Thank you so much! What a beautiful family mission and values."
