Did you make it to the Summit Organics farm walk last weekend? We hear it was a fantastic day with lots of delicious farm fresh food. If you missed out, don't worry, they have another one coming up in October. It's well worth it - such a beautiful farm, and what Rod and Tania are doing there is truly inspirational. Here is one of the recipes the lucky farm walkers enjoyed, using Summit Organics produce plus some other goodies from the market, including The Spice Palace's Chermoula. Sounds delicious!As promised the recipe for the Moroccan sweet potato parsnip patties.. from the summit organic luncheon last Saturday .

Most people don't realise just how challenging farming can be. Late last year Otto Saeck and his family almost lost their entire blueberry crop in one of the worst hailstorms they had ever seen. (You may have noticed they were away from the market for a long time - that's why). The good news is, eight months down the track, things are starting to get back to normal. The stall is back at the market and Otto says if the weather is kind there should be plenty of spring fruit on the way.So keep showing your support for what they do - in tough times it's what keeps our farmers going. ...

Some time ago we were approached by #thenakedfarmer to see if we would be happy to get our kit off to help raise awareness of mental health issues in the bush. . We thought why not? It's something that is close to our hearts. Little did we know the ABC 7:30 Report would tag along for the ride! 😳 . For better or worse this is how is panned out. You might need sunglasses if you're not comfort...
There’s been a bit of a fuss made recently (by some) about the ‘inconvenience’ or phasing out plastic bags at the big supermarkets. For farmers market shoppers it’s no big deal – they’ve been bringing their own bags for years!
