direct from our farmers this week:
savoy cabbages, nectar cheeses, sparkling reds

Sparkling reds:  The last of Avonmore Estate’s 2014 sparkling shiraz is on sale at the moment.  This five year old, naturally sparkling wine is full of blackberry and spice flavours but is now quite dry on the finish. Pick up a case at Lancefield.

Crinkly cabbages: Save Our Soils’ beautiful biodynamic Savoy cabbages are just coming into season. Shred the tender inner leaves for coleslaw, and blanch, stuff and bake the sturdy outer ones. Pick a couple up at Abbotsford or Alphington.
Cheese barrels: Sutton Grange Farm’s Holy Goat cheeses range from all goats’ milk to blends of cow and goat milk, available in semi-hard aged nectar wedges or in fresher nectar barrels.  Try these seasonal locally-made cheeses at Lancefield, Abbotsford or Alphington.
