Garlic harvesting

Garlic harvesting

We are about to start harvesting our garlic crop on Monday.  So excited to have another crop ready to sell to our customers.  Looking forward to our Helpx helpers from France who are going to give us a hand. I hope the weather is good to us!

101 Kiwi Recipes – the book!

The 101 Recipe challenge

The 101 Recipe challenge

We have been growing kiwifruit in Australia now for over 32 years. I have experimented using and cooking kiwifruit in many ways particularly in the 14 years we had our restaurant open on the farm. I had forgotten I had this little book published back in 1993 by the New Zealand Marketing Board. I found the book again in an old book shop in Nambucca Heads NSW a little while ago and had flipped through the pages. I found some of the combinations really amusing and it hit me how cooking styles have changed over the years. I have decided to take on making and trying every recipe in the book, yes 101 of them! I grow and love kiwifruit but really some of the recipes in the book are challenging and I would have to ask ‘why’, but I am up for some new taste sensations and hopefully will broaden my thinking of how to use Kiwifruit. I hope you enjoy my adventure and maybe I can come up with some great ideas in cooking to pass on!
