Chicken, Beef, Fruit, Veg, Herbs and Summer Rain!

IMG_2583Happy New Year to everyone! We hope you are enjoying the festive season đŸ™‚

Caroola Farm has loads of chicken available this weekend, from Friday 3-7pm at the On-Farm Shop plus Saturday at the Southern Harvest Farmers Market, Molonglo St Bungendore (opposite Food Lovers Market) and again at the On-Farm Shop Sunday from 11-4pm.

If you haven’t been to the Southern Harvest Farmers Market in Bungendore, now is your chance, with other Canberra Farmers Markets still closed this weekend – bring your family and friends, check out true regional produce and stop for a cuppa and a bite to eat!

IMG_6495We’re taking orders until Sunday only for full, half or quarter sides of beef (you can decide how your portion is cut up) at a bulk rate of $15.99/kg packaged by the butcher for delivery or collection from Friday 22nd. Reply to this email to register your interest.

We’ll also be harvesting the following fruit and veggies, but get in quick as they sell out fast:

  • Garlic
  • Onions
  • Shallots
  • Beans
  • Salad Mix
  • Stir-fry Mix
  • Celeriac
  • IMG_2589New potatoes
  • Apricots
  • Plus we’ll have Caroola Produce Preserves

Bulk Garlic buys $15 for 500g and $30 for 1kg plus postage (not braided) – just reply to this email and let us know how much you want, the email address to invoice you on and the address you’d like them sent to.

Thankfully it has been raining (less thankful since we tried to go camping in it, but, such is life…).

Our tomato and pumpkin plants are busy growing, but not yet ready, as are our beans and corn, cucumbers and squash… The fruit trees are bearing fruit which is just starting to ripen and as long as the birds stay away we look forward to a good fruit crop.

IMG_2604We are madly still potting up seeds and planting out seedlings (a never ending job) and the next big task is keeping weeds out of the garden after all the rain. We are doing a lot of fencing for better management of larger animals and the green manure in the garden is quite literally going ballistic.

If you haven’t been to the farm and would like to, please feel free to drop in during the farm-shop open hours.
