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.
~ Gumbaynggirr Country ~
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.
Come and visit us at Bellingen Growers Market, held on the 1st, 2nd & 4th Saturdays of the month.
Where: Bellingen Show Grounds (off Black St)
When: 7:30 - 11:30am.
We will be there each week selling our fresh unpackaged tempeh in all our signature flavours, wrapped in a little brown package.
