Week 4 Farmletter

Make your own box of fruit, veggies and groceries or click here to see what's in our nine different pre-packed boxes.

Fruit
This week in the warehouse it is all about fruit!!We're chuffed to be bringing you David Cox's incredible red sensation pears. These are great for lunch boxes so get a hold of some just in time for school to start. David prides himself on leaving his fruit on the tree as long as possible rather than picking them all in one go and storing them for weeks as is common in the industry.  Picking the perfect pear is a delicate art for David and the results speak for themselves. In a few weeks, we'll see the beurre bosc and winter cole varieties come on also.Ian Burow has a LOT of mangoes at the moment. His instructions are sell! sell! sell! so we've got a special price for orders of 2 or more trays. Taste these and you'll never be the same.

Veggies
We’ve still got loads of precious little heirloom cherry tomatoes, zucchini, and all manner of salad greens. And don’t forget to stock up on your kitchen staples - onions, garlic, potatoes and pumpkins.

Groceries
We’ve got a big batch of freshly made Naked Crackers. We are all totally addicted to them. We are also crushing on the amazing miso from Sunshine Organic Miso. And great news is that we have ham and bacon from Randall and Juanita at Echo Valley. The Ham is made each week by a local butcher in Boonah who uses traditional wood smoking methods to produce some of the best ham ever!

Until next week,
Emma-Kate & the Food Connect Team

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.
