It is a terrific thrill to let you know that we entered two products in the Royal Agricultural Society Sydney Royal Fine Food awards held in Sydney this month: our black garlic cloves and our lemon myrtle and black garlic powder. As you can see, we scored two silver medals!
Since its inception in 1822, the RAS has dedicated itself to the pursuit of excellence in agriculture. It has been an influential voice in setting benchmarks and raising the production values of Australia’s primary industries. Our black garlic has been judged by high-profile, highly skilled personalities who are recognised as experts within their profession.
We particularly want to thank Gilles Bonin and Victoria Clutterbuck for their mentoring of us as accidental garlic growers and their supply of luscious garlic. Thanks also to our community for all the support: all our garlic is locally grown (some on our farms but all in Braidwood) and feedback from customers has been essential in giving us the courage to enter this award. Thanks to our retailers who took a punt on stocking our products - we look forward to a great next season.
