Saturday Dec 22 is the last market of the year for Dagun Growers where you can collect all the goodies you need for the big day. Market will resume Saturday January 12.
Amamoor & Kandanga Stations’ market stalls will be joining us over this period so come and support your local community groups.
December 15 is also our very popular Cats Claw Basket Weaving day. Come and learn how. It is a very simple technique to master producing unique shapes and a functional basket! Not to mention the satisfaction in knowing you have put an environmental weed to good use. Donations for materials will be accepted if you are unable to source some of this pest yourself.
Elaine is back from her American adventure full of inspiration and exciting new ideas for Mary Valley Country Harvest Food Hub. The co-op is in the process of being formed, so if you are interested in learning more about the group contact Elaine on 5484 3749.
It seems the Americans were envious of our extensive growing season in the Valley which allows us to plant and produce food for a lot longer season. Something we can be very thankful for!
Surprising was the diversity of produce available throughout the Appalachians. It seems the secret to success of small famers is embracing diversity. The key is what you are offering and where you are selling it.
Also surprising was Kale topped the list of green vegetables sold, then collard. Something which we in Australia rarely see (it used to adorn the butcher shops, remember!) or eat, but it is a highly nutritious and hardy vegetable that will tackle even our extreme summer days. Elaine has a fantastic recipe for Kale chips in which you simply lightly oil the leaves, season and bake on a high temperature ‘til crispy. You can also try adding nuts & garlic.
Locally, there is a fantastic selection of freshly dug potatoes and white onions at the moment. So time to stock up! Eggplants & peppers are beginning to make an appearance with lots of varieties of interesting zucchinis. Try something new and sweet.
There is always a good selection of salad and cooking greens. The lettuce mix is long lasting and super fresh! Imbil Homestead supply fresh baked bread, local veg and a distinct assortment of Honeys. Ask Bill for a taste See you every Saturday from 2pm.
