Grow, Cook, Love Food!

Herbert Peabody is a farmer who lives on Mulberry Tree Farm, with cows, olive trees and a big, big vegetable patch. 

Herbie, as he is known to his family and friends, helps children know, grow and love food through his illustrated storybook adventures and e-book cookbooks.

The adventures of Herbert Peabody focus on connecting children with where food comes from, and centre around problem solving and co-operation.

Young readers are shown that with some hard work and a little bit of magic, extraordinary things can happen.

Praise for Herbert Peabody

“As a parent you’ve gotta love a book your kids want to read AND that is actually teaching them important stuff!!!”

“Being a small-time farmer herself, Bianca C Ross knows about the ins and outs of growing food, just like her vegetable-growing character Herbert Peabody. This book taps into the educate-kids-about-where-food-comes-from drive” The Age

“This sweet story offers kids a fun way to understand the origins of food.” Disney Princess Magazine
