Well, after having a bit of a break, we are back to making jerky, keeping warm by the fire, and savouring our favourite pasta dishes for the evening meal. Uncle Tony’s pasta sauce has a bit of added warmth in it for all of us to enjoy. Andre and Jason have split some old fence posts of red gum and black box to bring some firewood for you to try for keeping warm on these chilly days, as we do at the farm. We will also be adding to this with our plantation wood of red gum and Occidentalis eucalypt. This August it is planned to plant more trees in our farm plantation when the soil warms up.
It has been so chilly this winter, first with frosts, then fortunately for our winter crops, we have now received significant rains. Crop emergence was quite patchy, so hopefully spring warmth will help their progress. Durum wheat for the pasta is looking happy though.
The Winter Warmer vegan jerky which incorporates tomatoes, herbs, walnuts and red wine to give extra strength for managing those cold days (or our busy lifestyles) is almost ready.
We appreciate your continued support of our farm online and through our various outlets. We are continuing to gradually add to our range of products between our seasonal farm program.
Until we chat again,
Andre and Rowena
