Falling for Autumn

A SEASON THAT WELCOMES NEW HARVESTS JUST WAITING TO BE CHOPPED, TOSSED, ROASTED, STEWED AND MADE INTO HEART-WARMING MEALS.

It’s time to enjoy the array of produce that was planted weeks and in some cases months ago. Our growers from North Queensland down to Tassie have been nurturing crops to ensure they have developed to their maximum potential, ready and full of flavours for your plate.

“It is only the farmer who faithfully plants seeds in the Spring, who reaps a harvest in Autumn” – B. C. Forbes

Before we inspire you with ideas for Autumn eats, we need to acknowledge the weather!

…It’s no secret that the weather over the last four months has been extreme. As growers we have been challenged by a long hot summer particularly in NSW and more recently dealt with large volumes of rain across the east coast.

As a result there has been shortages on quite a number of products including Broccoli and Cauliflower. Don’t fear shortages will be short lived your favourites will be back in spades sooner than later.

We love out field grown vegetables and they love Autumn, it’s definitely their time to shine; check out what we grow here.

AUTUMN IS THE SEASON WHERE YOU CAN ENJOY A SALAD OR SOUP BUT WHO SAYS YOU HAVE TO CHOOSE!

What we love most for Autumn eating;

As the cooler weather sets in, we can’t go past the earthy flavours of a vivacious beetroot, full of antioxidants – try some beets juiced or roasted. Then there is the brassica family, full of colour, flavour and nutritious goodness; shred red cabbage into salads, pan fry cauliflower florets and top with fresh herbs and a dollop of yoghurt or steam some broccoli and serve with a sprinkle of chilli flakes.
