We do not approve! | Dutch Creams | Pomelos | Tempeh

Last night's news about the approval of Adani's groundwater plan almost certainly seals the deal for the mining giant to begin work. It's rather ironic that this decision was made just days after Climate Week. We'll be getting out on the streets to voice our concerns - we'd love to see you there. It's hard to listen to the news, it's hard to stay inspired, but I think Richard Denniss sums it up best:

Thank goodness your real support of our local farmers - people who care for the soil, the wildlife, the water and your health - secures our food system and provides a real climate solution in the face of such destruction.
 
Have you tried the small veg box?  A killer variety of locally grown veg, perfect for smaller households. This week's box is filled with broccoli, capsicum, lebanese cucumber, eshallots, garlic, lettuce, mushrooms, potatoes, tomatoes, zucchinis, and avocados (yep, they're a fruit masquerading as a vegetable!).

New this week! 
  • Creamy and oh so local Dutch Cream potatoes from Tammy and Dave's farm Black Crow Organics, just past Gatton.
  • Up your vitamin C with super local Pomelos from Elana Moellers farm in Bundamba (just near Ipswich). They're delicious, being an ancestor of the grapefruit, they taste very similar but without the bitterness. Great for breakfast or in a salad - one will feed a whole family!
  • Biodynamic Tempeh from Lara at Totally Tempeh is back in!  Delicious fried on a high heat with some coconut oil.
Watch out for Oxheart Tomatoes, local Queensland onions (yes!) and carrots - hitting the Shed in the coming weeks!

Order one of our lovingly packed, seasonal and high value boxes, between now and 10pm Sunday night for doorstop delivery.


Thanks for choosing locally grown and made!

PS Our go-to Fennel farmer Steve Pennel has a bad bout of the flu and is taking time to rest and recover. So unfortunately, there's no fennel next week. Rest up Steve!

This salad is inspired by the flavours of Thailand and the balance of hot and sour with salty and sweet. Traditionally, this dish would be paired with fish, but it works well with most types of seafood. Definitely a fresh recipe to bring out this summer.
