A New Dawn…

Where were you the day JFK was assassinated? Or man first walked on the moon? Or Mr Shew finally gave Kurt from Glee a solo?


THIS moment is the one you want to remember… (also, the Kurt one obviously. I was at my parents’ house, I’ll never forget it).

As eagerly anticipated as Rachel and Finn’s next duet comes Daylesford and Hepburn Mineral Springs Co’s “Pay Over the Phone” invoice option.

That’s right: we are now able to accept credit card payments OVER THE PHONE!

But Mary, that’s crazier than a Jay Z / Alisha Keys mash up!!

It’s not – and that song already exists. You just need a credit card number, expiry date and reference number from the bottom of the customer’s invoice.

Then it gets entered into the MYOB website – probably by me.

Easier than Santana, am I right?!!

Pay Over the Phone – what a New Direction!!!


Gleeful Regards,


Mary Milesi

Greenhouse by Joost

We went to Sydney last week for the opening of our dear friend Joosts Greenhouse at Circular Quay. What an inspiration.

Ideas have been distilled, improved developed, and new technology introduced since we were at the Greenhouse at Federation Square in the summer 2009. Walls that capture carbon, a frame that was fabricated on site by an amazing machine that cut each individual piece, labelled it and handed it to the guys to bolt together like a meccano set, all fabricated from recycled metal. Kitchen waste composted on site and used to grow veg on the roof, grain delivered each day to be ground on site to make the bread /pasta/and pizzas, even the oats are rolled to order for your muesli.

And then there is the mineral water. In a world first and only possible with the support of Joost we have started bottling our sparkling mineral water direct from the spring in recyclable Eco Kegs. Joost is making cola, lemonade and tonic water in house with our mineral water as base as well as serving it in its beautiful natural state in jam jars of course.

If you are interested in your environment, design, food or new ideas or the endless possibilities we all have to make a change for the better you must go and see this building. Just don’t eat the strawberry walls, their magic.

Reducing Our Carbon Footprint


Here at, Daylesford & Hepburn Mineral Springs Co., we are continuously looking for new ways to reduce our carbon footprint and our impact on the environment.

Recently, we have purchased a substantial amount of shares in the Hepburn Wind farm project and aim to be fully reliant on wind power to run the company from our Daylesford headquarters.

Hepburn Wind is building Australia’s first community-owned wind farm. With two turbines on Leonards Hill, 10km south of Daylesford, expected to be operational in the first half of 2011. Expert analysis predicts that the wind farm will annually generate more power than used by the houses of Daylesford.

More information on the project can be found at www.hepburnwind.com.au
