A healthy legacy of fresh and delicious provisions

As a family run store we are immensely proud of our heritage and leadership, providing Perth shoppers with superior service, quality and range for more than 30 years.

Discover farm fresh produce and gourmet kitchen goodies at our store, located in Churchlands, just 8km from the Perth CBD.  We are committed to bringing you the convenience of high end, top quality and specialist products, alongside your everyday essentials.

Driven by a passion for food, shared by our customers and our team

We understand food shopping isn’t just about the products on the shelves. It’s about healthy options and inspired creations for you and your loved ones. Most of the magic happens in your kitchen.

Visit our Inspiration section. We hope our carefully selected menu ideas and recipes, along with our exciting new ingredients, will ignite your imagination, and keep your passion for food alive.

We all love it when a herd gets together over something good to eat. Whether its something delicious and sustaining at an outdoor event, or a platter of tasty appetisers at a get-together. Our on-site kitchen is ready to take your orders.

Connect with us for your grab-and-go catering needs. We have a fabulous range of ready-made meals, salads, and desserts. We also provide a range of platters and specialist products, available now to order online.

Dennis Cerinich – Business Owner

Business owner, figurehead, friend and mentor to our herd since the very beginning. Dennis continues to motivate the team in following our core values, and plays an essential role in managing our longstanding relationships with local growers and suppliers. He is most passionate about fresh produce, although we can often find him hiding away in the bakery taste testing our latest baked goods!

‘I have watched our business grow and expand over the last 36 years. It’s essential we continue to change with the needs of our customers and exceed their expectations in every department. The future is full of exciting challenges and I’m positive the people who are part of our team will act as the driving force behind this business.

Erin Cerinich Director of Operations

Growing up in the family business, Erin began helping at the store after school packing bags at the registers for pocket money as an 8 year old, and has since climbed the ladder all the way to the top. Today, as a true foodie at heart, she is always coming up with new delicious salads and inspiring pick up and go items for the store. On her time off you can find Erin in the kitchen at home testing new recipes on her family and friends, or travelling the world in search of the latest foodie trends. In her new role as our Director of Operations, Erin is leading the management team towards an exciting and prosperous future.

In the Community

Market places have always been vibrant community hubs, which is why for us recognizing and nurturing community spirit is such an important core value for our business.

The Herdsman is committed to participating in the local community wherever we are able. So far in 2017, we have supported over 20 charitable causes and will continue helping many more. This year our biggest challenge was taking part in the Central Park Plunge, where we raised over $2,500 for Ronald McDonald House.

We encourage our team to get involved and often requests to support a cause come straight from our employees themselves.
