Deliveries for October and November

Rockhampton delivery will be on the 6 October.
Gladstone delivery will be on the 27 October.

We will also do a separate delivery for Biloela, Theodore, Moura and Baralaba on the 17 November. If you live in these areas or know some who does, can you please pass on our details.

Order Forms will be emailed out - if you have any trouble opening or filling the form in, please let me know.

On the order form, you will notice that we are giving you the opportunity to buy extra pork mince, pork sausages or diced pork by the kg.

Christmas Hams
We would like to start planning for Christmas, if you would like a ham, can you please let us know via email. We will sell hams separately at Christmas time, but leading up to then, they will only come as part of the 5kg ham and bacon pack.

This time we are trialling Goat packs. We will sell them as 1/2 a goat pack, and because we don't know how much this will weigh, they will be sold by the kg. We only have a small number this time and will then have a few more after Christmas. Whether we continue after that, will depend on interest and profitability.

PLEASE NOTE: If you would like some goat and you live in Gladstone area, please respond now, so that we can make sure you don't miss out.

Real Food Festival

We went to Maleny on the weekend to attend the Real Food Festival - read more on my Healthy Farming Healthy Food Blog. We met some interesting food producers - the Sunshine Coast is lucky to have so much food on their doorstep! We bought and taste tested some Kidaman Beef. They are a fairly new business to the local food market down that way and we were VERY impressed with their quality and professionalism. We enjoyed their rump steak and sausages one night and then a Mussaman Curry with round steak the next. Absolutely Great!! We also visited a Fejoa stand. When the Owner/Producer said that their Fejoa White Balsamic Glaze was great with pork, well we just had to buy some! (I'm yet to try that) Hopefully we've also made some good contacts for our own produce. Other great products included: olives, honey, bananas, coffee, dairy, fresh fruit and veg, as well as products produced locally - jams, cheese, bread, chutney, jam and sauces - just so much food! If you're in the Sunshine Coast region, try and support these businesses and other local food producers. I also wonder if we can do something like this in our Region of Central Queensland - we also have some great food products!
