IN THE NEWS 2020!
We are happy to say that all is thriving at Tenterfield Creek Organic Farm.
2020 GARLIC CROP
Our Rochford Organic Garlic 2020 crop is in the ground and growing well. The frosts have been coming, and as we all know the garlic loves a good frost. We are also having a winter season of gentle rain, which is beautiful for growing.
2019 GARLIC CROP
In 2019 we had a bumper crop with many people saying it was the best garlic they had ever eaten. We completely sold out and couldn’t meet the demands for orders.
Having a bumper crop was such a relief as we were hit hard with the September bush fires. Fortunately for us our garlic crop wasn’t affected, however, there was a lot to contend with and the emotional side of things was quite trying.
This year we have extended our crop and hope we can meet all demands for orders.
IN THE PRESS
We were beyond excited when Hayden Quinn, Master Chef, contacted us about filming our organic garlic here in Tenterfield. We had so much fun and featured on his show Taste of Australia on Channel 10 Saturday 25th July. Steve is quite the celebrity now, because, YES it is official, we do have the best garlic in the world! www.haydenquinn.com.au
We continue to use Biodynamic Principals and find that it adds life and vigor to our garlic and our soil.
FREEZE YOUR GARLIC
We can’t express enough our delight in discovering how well garlic freezes.
We break the bulbs into cloves, leave the skins on and freeze them. We keep them in a container and take out our cloves as we need them. You don’t even have to thaw them. The skins pop off so easily you can slice it, grate it or use them whole. The flavour is brilliant. You can also freeze the bulb whole if you are wanting to make garlic comfit or roast them whole.
If you want delicious organic biodynamic Australian garlic all year round we suggest doubling your order and freezing it.
Last Christmas our garlic plaits were very popular and this year we will be making them again. They look fabulous hanging in your kitchen especially for Christmas.
ORGANIC FLOWERS, VEGIES, AND CITRUS
Our new venture for 2020 is Tenterfield Creek Organic Flowers. Yes we are going into cut flowers and edible flowers and are presently preparing to build our hoop houses.
We also intend to grow vegetables and are presently planting many varieties of citrus.
We will keep you updated on our progress of this new venture.
ORDERS AND PAYMENT
This year we are asking people to place their order, then when we have harvested and know the garlic is ready for posting, we will send you an invoice and ask for your payment upfront. Once we have received your payment we will post your garlic order.
Last season, unfortunately for us, many people didn’t pay for their garlic after receiving it, even though we sent an invoice several times and when we checked the tracking number it had been delivered and accepted.
We work hard to deliver people their beautiful garlic and are disheartened that some people think they don’t need to pay us.
A BIG THANK YOU
Thank you to everyone who supported us last season! Thank you to those who paid immediately and sent us congratulatory messages on our garlic.
Looking forward to preparing and sending you your 2020 garlic.
We wish you good health, peace and happiness,
Rose and Steve
