December Farmers Markets 2016

If you're a farmstay guest you can pick up goodies during your holiday (book now for the farmstay), but If you want to pick up some goodies this December and aren't staying with us, stock is available at the pink building in the main street of Nabiac called the Nabiac Nook - along with lots of other great goodies from local artisans - it's open 7 days a week and is just a second or two off the Pacific Highway. Or visit us at one of these Farmers Markets (if you want anything special brought down eg: bulk honey or large beeswax, please email in advance).

Farmers Markets - November 2016

Here are the farmers markets we'll be at this November. We bring honey refills (so you can recycle), honey in jars and a range of products including an organic relax tea, honey chilli sauce, hot habanero honey, honey orange mustard, honey dijon mustard, pure beeswax candles, gingerbread and rosella jam. We also normally have on board native beekeeping books and other goodies depending on what we're harvesting at the farm!

Organic Farmers Markets in Sydney

Wow, what a weekend! We headed down to Sydney to give the organic markets a try and ended up having a fantastic weekend catching up with lots of past farmstay guests...who would have thought you could fit 12 kids behind the counter of our little stall!?!

Bikie Gang meets the Bee Balm Lady at the Farmers Market

For years I was a shopper at farmers markets, never even imagining I would have my own stand. I loved shopping for fresh breads, pickles, handmade cheeses and fresh macadamias...but now, I'm the one behind the table, enjoying the moment as people taste our different honies, try a lip balm or enjoy the scent of a raw goat's milk soap.  Putting yourself out there can be nerve-wracking, fun, fulfilling, demoralising, exciting, enriching and tiring...but it's never, ever boring.

Could beekeeping be the most satisfying pursuit ever?

What an amazing couple of weeks we've enjoyed. We've handspun more honey, hosted another beekeeping course, collected and filtered our beeswax in the solar cooker and blended our raw honey and beeswax into a natural range of non-toxic lip balms...and then we sold them at farmers' markets to a great response as people enjoyed the natural flavour and texture of a non-synthetic lip balm.

Oh my Gourd!

I skipped this year's gourd planting (too busy making goats milk soap), but last season I planted heaps of varieties in mini raised tyre garden beds (I figured it was okay to use tyres because we weren't going to be eating the gourds).  The tyre beds were the easiest way for me to get the gourds growing without worrying too much about the boggy clay paddock.  And they were the cheapest too as the local mechanic was only too happy to donate the tyres for the purpose.

So...if you're planning on planting gourds, get ready for some work!
