Ferguson Plarre's Guide to Fundraising

Raise money with our Award Winning Pie Drives

With over 115 years of baking, FERGUSON PLARRE BAKEHOUSES savoury products represent a great way to help your members enjoy award winning Pies, Tiddly Oggies & Sausage Rolls whilst raising funds for your group, community or charity.  

We’ve been baking scrumptious pies, Tiddly Oggies & Sausage Rolls for over a century. All products are still baked under the keen eye of 4th generation baker Michael Plarre and all of our savouries are award winners:

  • Victoria’s Best Sausage Roll as judged at the Victorian Baking Show
  • Australia’s Best Pasties (Tiddly Oggies) as judged at The Great Aussie Pasty Competition
  • Award winning Pie range as judged at The Great Aussie Pie Competition

All of our savouries are freezable so you can promote and sell them to your customers in volume and with confidence.
