News from the Garden

We have been busy planting and fertilizing over the past few weeks. Our tomatoes are thriving and we anticipate a good crop this year from varieties such as black Russians, ox-heart, beef steak, tigerella and green zebras. Our citrus trees seem to have survived the strong winds of the past few months, the fruit has now set and we look forward to these growing large and ripe.

The black angus beef from our farm has been on our menus for a few months now, all with very positive feedback. It is farmed organically and is 100% grass fed. It is satisfying to use the whole beast in our restaurant and a great opportunity for our young apprentices to learn. We have had our first calf, a heifer which will join our breeding heard in the following years.
