We recently have imported a new greens harvester to help improve our efficiency and to deliver a better than ever crop! We have started growing our greens in an entirely new way, and this is enabling us to continue to organically stay one step ahead of pests and diseases...feel free to write and to ask questions...
We are so pleased to announce the births of our newest members of our Nubian goat herd.
Firstly Emerald bore a massive buck "Crescent" born on the last crecent of the moon last month (when it was in conjunction with Venus.....). Then sparkle bore triplets, first a huge doe "Silvery Moon", then two lovely bucks "Beau" then "Arrow" - named for the speed of his delivery!
These two does are first time mikers (which was quite an adventure for the first week!!) and have settled down nicely to be valuable members of our milking herd.
After 280mm of rain in about 15 hours, the creek at the farm rose several meters, causing much havoc. We are thankful for the inspiring efforts of our friends from the community in Katoomba, who tirelessly helped us to restore cleanliness, order and sanity! Thank-you to all our friends and customers whose concern and care was expressed over this time.
The good news, we are almost all cleaned up and ready to receive visitors for the Shavuot festival this weekend.
If you live in WA and ever wondered what it would be like to visit Peppercorn Creek Farm and meet the folks...Yashar and Yaqarah and Family will be in Western Australia from the 14th to the 28th of January 2016.
We would love to pay you a visit and chat more about the things we are doing in the twelve tribes....
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the farm 02 46 772 668 for Yashar's mobile number.
We are thankful to taste some of this years abundant harvest of honey from our hives.
The well rounded flavour of the honey contains nectar from plants such as Echinacea, Kale, Peppercorn, Lavender, Thyme, Rosemary, Sunflower, Salvation Jane....It is amazing that bees can capture in flavour what the eyes can capture in the beauty of the flowers.
There are always many helpers when it comes to extracting honey!
Yes folks, its that time of year....our Common Ground Cafe trucks are moving north for the annual Woodford Folk Festival. We begin trading before the festival opens, with dinner on Christamas day, please drop in.
Because of our efforts in Queensland, our Picton Common Ground Cafe will be closed Dec 19 - Jan 11, and our regular weekly markets will be on hold from Monday December 22 until Wednesday 7th January (beginning with the Kiama Organic Farmers Market).
The farm will be in full swing, with the recent rains bringing plenty of weeds to the surface!
Our Yellow Deli in Katoomba will also be OPEN as usual during this time.
