direct from our farmers this week:
local seaweed, free range eggs and smoky ham

Edible seaweed: Locally-grown wakame seaweed is a specialty of Mike’s (from Mike’s Mussels), and a few decent days of weather have meant he could get out on the water to harvest some in time for University of Melbourne and Abbotsford this week.

Extra eggs: From humble beginnings selling a few live hens, family farmers The Good Life Farm Co are now skilled enough to supply farmers’ markets, local grocers, cafés and CSAs with their Macedon Ranges-reared free range eggs. A few openings for new wholesale orders and subscriptions to their Farm Box scheme are currently available – talk to Claire or Paul at Lancefield or on 0403 843 314. 

Smoky ham:  Delicious ham is not just for Christmas.  Tooborac pig farmers McIvor Farm work with skilled butchers to turn their old breed pork into smoky ham full of flavour and texture. Pick up a pack for the tastiest weekend sandwiches – they’re at Lancefield on Saturday.
