Down At The Farm

Down At The Farm

Rory and Lee-Ann moved to the country in 2009. The motivation behind the move was a desire to get back to basics – to have a go at being more self sufficient.

The first acquisition was sheep, then came the ducks and chickens. The orchard was planted and a small area of the river flats was cleared of gorse (by hand) and planted out in potatoes, onions and garlic. Some of the old blackberry bushes were left alone and have proved a wonderful resource when they fruit but it is a short season and we needed something else. We tried building a smokehouse and experimenting with the garlic and salt. As the connections were made with neighbours and resources shared - the next option was to take produce to market, and use the neighbour’s commercial kitchen to make jam and jelly from those amazing berries and bottle that salt.

So here we are now with our own registered commercial kitchen on site, and a busy schedule making smoked salts for all our very loyal fans!!! Come join us at stand H20
