Almost Spring

Well, it's almost Spring - a time of new beginnings, and I'm about to start one myself. For the last four years I've been working full time off farm. That will all change at the end of this week. Read more about life after full time work here. During this time I have often been time challenged, which has meant that I have not been as efficient as I would have liked in running this business of ours. I am hoping to spend more time working on the business to make sure that it runs a bit smoother. The ordering and invoicing process has been less than ideal and so I am grateful for your patience and understanding.

I will be doing invoices this week for orders for Theodore, Baralaba, Woorabinda, Rocky and Gladstone. If you don't receive one by Wednesday and you've ordered, please let me know. I still haven't fixed the online order form so please confirm via email if you used it.

I want to say a huge thankyou to all our market customers. You are making my life a joy and giving me hope for the future of our business. We are ultimately a paddock to plate business and this would be nothing without you. If at any time you are dissatisfied, please contact me and tell me about it so that we can work it out together.
Check out our market tab to see where will be and look for the trailer.......

I know we are nearly half way through August, but thought I'd better let people know our plans for the month!
Saturday 17th August – Yeppoon Showground Markets
Sunday 18th August – Emu Park Markets or Kern Arcade - not confirmed.
Thursday 22nd August - Deliver to Theodore
Sunday 25th August – Calliope Markets –  Deliver Gladstone orders
Monday 26th August - Deliver to Baralaba and Woorabinda
Saturday 31st August – Yeppoon Showground Markets - Deliver Rocky Orders

The markets have been very successful, so thank you to all our new customers. I've been really enjoying the days - and so have Chloe and Rita when they've been helping me. For those that don't know, Chloe is our daughter and she is an integral part of our business - always ready to help no matter what we are doing! Rita is my sister and is also a great support. I stay with Rita when I'm in Rocky overnight and she is always around to bounce off ideas!

We are still not sure if we are able to go back to the Kern Arcade Markets or not. I will let people know via email, blog and facebook when we do work it out. Apparently there isn't much room and they could only fit us in last time because some people weren't there due to the Rocky Swap. So this weekend coming will either be Emu Park OR Kern Arcade.

It's still not too late to put in an order for the Gladstone run, however, please let me know as soon as possible! Rocky orders will close this weekend.
