How much do you know about Pump­kin Seeds? You’re prob­a­bly think­ing, ‘what is there to know?’ I bet you didn’t know they’re a health food and can and are used in body prod­ucts. The Aus­tralian Pump­kin Seed Com­pany is the only Aus­tralian grower of pump­kin seeds and the de­mand for the prod­uct is grow­ing ex­po­nen­tially. Us­ing Euro­pean styr­ian pump­kins the com­pany pro­duces oil with health ben­e­fits that help kid­ney func­tion, choles­terol and male prostate dis­or­ders. They pro­duce seed and nut meal and flavoured pump­kin seeds, in­clud­ing cho­co­late coated, roasted, salted, smoked, or spiced. The Ar­ti­san Oil Mill is another part of The Aus­tralian Pump­kin Seed Com­pany as they also press apri­cots, hazel­nuts and wal­nuts into oil. At their shop in Ovens you can taste all their prod­ucts and see what hap­pens on the fac­tory floor, where oil is pressed and pack­ets filled, while learn­ing about the ben­e­fits of pump­kin seeds over a cof­fee or hot cho­co­late.
