Baking with Love Since 1866 McMasters heritage dates back to 1822 Scotland where Thomas McMaster learnt the art of artisan baking after moving there from Ireland as a young man. Hearing about new opportunities in Australia, Thomas took a risk embarking on a journey to the new world colony of Sydney in 1839. However, after realising that Sydney wasn't the right place for him and his family, Thomas moved to Victoria in 1842, eventually settling in the young, bustling town of Beechworth. In 1866 Thomas' eldest daughter, Mary McMaster, and her pastry chef husband, David Dunlop, joined the rest of the McMaster clan in Beechworth and established the Scotch Pie Shop and the McMaster's Pies brand. For over 150 years McMasters has been renowned for its quality, artisan pies. Quality, Organic and Clean At McMasters, we strongly believe that artisan pies should only contain the freshest, locally sourced ingredients. That's why our pies, desserts and sweet treats contain no preservatives, fillers, chemicals or other dangerous additives often found in bakery and supermarket products. Our commitment to quality ensures that you can taste the difference. Sustainability We also prioritise sustainability by sourcing only locally farmed and grown ingredients from sustainable sources. This not only benefits the environment and the community, but also enhances the quality, taste, flavour and texture of our products. We hope you enjoy our products as much as we do!
