direct from our farmers this week:
lamb, truffles and kiwifruit

Roast lamb: Ninety Mile’s lambs are farmed near Woodside Beach in Gippsland.   The rolled loin roasts are full of flavour and currently weighing in at 500gms - perfect for a couple or small family.  Chat to the farmer at Collingwood or Flemington this weekend.

Fresh truffles: The Truffle House grows black truffles in South Gippsland, and their fresh truffles (and truffle-infused fresh eggs) are in season now.  Follow the aroma to their stall at Collingwood to find out how to make the most of their flavour.

Biodynamic kiwifruits: One of the benefits of Beenak Farm’s biodynamic practices is that no sprays are used.  This means their kiwifruit can be added whole to fresh smoothies and the skin will provide extra fibre.  Stock up at Collingwood, Flemington and Eltham.

Clunes Farmers' Market
Historic Fraser Street, Clunes

Sunday August 11

Free entry

Head out to the Victorian Goldfields this Sunday to visit the Clunes Farmers’ Market.  With plenty of parking, this is a great market for regional specialties like tins of olive oil and preserved olives from Salute Oliva.  Save room in the car for some of local grower Mt Prospect Farms’ gigantic cauliflowers. Pick up fresh exotic mushrooms from new market trader Oyshii Mushrooms.  After shopping for fresh local produce at the market, there’s plenty of opportunity to browse the local stores.
