We have just signed up as a partner of Out in the Paddock, an exciting new venture that is going to host top notch dinner's in the paddocks of producers using only locally sourced produce. The first one is on the 29th of November at Pitchford Produce in their broccolini field alongside Currency Creek (the actual Creek, not the town). The guy organising it is completely nuts! He has Laura (Masterchef runner-up) doing the cooking (in the paddock), live music, incredible table setting, tour of the farm and much more. Hampers of local produce were sent to media outlets this week (see below). We'll be providing the EVOO and also attending to mingle with guests and talk about how we produce our olive oil. If all goes well, we will be putting our hand up to host a similar dinner in the grove. Imagine having dinner with the backdrop below....
The pouches have proved to be very popular! We have just received 3 VERY large boxes with 1200 empty pouches in them just in time for this weekends Mount Compass Market. Purchase 5 or more and postage is FREE through our online store. In fact any order of $50 or more will always get FREE postage through our online store. Locals (Goolwa and surrounds - and further if you twist my arm) will always get free delivery if you order through our 'Goolwa Orders' page.
Mount Compass Produce Market was a great success last month and it is back again on the 1st of November from 8:30am to 1pm. This market is in an ideal location and has some great produce and craft available. There were 16 stallholders last time with many more in the process of signing up. Good things to come!!
Honey, Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Lemon Cake
I have just uploaded the recipe to this wonderful cake on the recipes page of our website. It is gluten free and no sugar (although truck loads of honey! so not ideal for diabetics). Speaking of which... A new cafe in Strathalbyn has just opened its doors this week. Cafe Emporium, 23 High Street, specialises in Gluten Free and Diabetic friendly food. They also use Seaview Grove EVOO and have various sizes available to purchase. Being in Strathalbyn, they also have plenty of interesting antiques for sale.
