So the weather's definitely alot chiller than I dare remember, especially here on the farm. It really doesn't seem to warm up much more past -3 degrees, ok perhaps a slight exaggeration..This weather lends itself to slowing down though, it's the natural rhythm of this universe, when the temperature drops the activity slows. Its at this time of the year that life goes underground, with the large majority of root vegetable flourishing, perhaps this is a perfect analogy of what happens to humans, its often at this time of the year we become a lot more reflective, refocusing and comforting ourselves with food.
We have been doing this already and have some fabulous things happening.
This week begins the first week our menu planners, completed, nutritionally sound and delicious created by our very own resident nutritionist....me. We understand that life is busy and sometimes you just need some guidance, so every week we will have a new menu available for you to download and create a feast everyday. This week's menu is a very light refreshing high green, high raw menu to start a fresh. These menu's do not include meat, but if you enjoy meat, please add wherever, -except for in the smoothies and juices ;).
You can also purchase the menu box which comes complete with all the ingredients required to make this week's meals, great for 2-3 people.
In the next couple of weeks we will also have a new shopping experience, with a new shopping cart being installed on the store. This will mean that it will be more interactive, which in turn makes it more functional and efficient. This has been constructed with your feedback in mind and if there is anything that you think we need, email us.
Our store is coming along, we are just awaiting the kitchen now, it is being made from over 100 year old recycled floor boards, it is gorgeous and we can't wait for you to see it. We have a fabulous line up of foodies, chef's, cook's who can't wait to share their magic with you either. It's so nice when things come together, our aim with the store was to re-construct the disheveled interior with sustainable recycled materials as much as possible and we have quite successful in doing this, we polished the existing floors, after stripping back over 70 years of flooring. Its going to quite a culinary experience.
DON'T FORGET TO PLACE YOUR ORDER NOW.
WEEKLY PRODUCE REPORT
We have amazing organic garlic from the Orbost region at a sensational price. A great immune booster, and a sensational source of sulphur.
We have local organic watercress coming in this week, Organic Watercress is a member of the nasturtium family, which is the edible flower family. Loved for its rather bitter and peppery taste. Can be added to salads, smoothies or used as a garnish or flavouring. Powerhouse of nutrients, excellent source of vitamins B1, B2, B6, C, E, manganese, and carotenes. It also a good source of calcium, fiber, iron and copper.
Organic Ruby Red grapefruit are in this week juicy and slightly sour. If you are into grapefruit you will love them.
The organic cauliflowers are definitely coming into their own, with the heads bright white. Don't forget that you can eat the greens that surround the head.
