New Season Garlic 2018 Available Soon

We have started to harvest this year's Certified Organic Italian Pink garlic crop and should have it available for sale in a couple of weeks.  It is hanging out to dry at the moment to remove excess moisture and form its dry outer protective skin.  If the garlic is kept dry and reasonably well ventilated, this once a year crop will keep for many months.  It is, however, at its very best just after harvest.   Visit this link to be notified when stock is available.

CITRONS

It's citrus time at our farm - these beauties are citrons from the orchard. Citrons are one of the four original citrus fruits from which all other citrus types developed.

The citron is a large fragrant citrus fruit with a thick rind.  It is one of the four original citrus fruits (the others being pomelo, mandarin and papeda) from which all other citrus types developed through natural hybrid selection or artificial hybridization.

While the lemon or orange are peeled to consume their pulpy and juicy segments, the citron's pulp is dry, containing a small quantity of juice, if any. The main content of a citron fruit is the thick white rind which is delicious to eat raw and is used in many ways around the world, such as in sweets, jams, pickles, preserves.

There is an increasing market for the citron for the soluble fibre (pectin).
