Food & Products

 

Capers 

The only certified biodynamic capers in Margaret River. The capers are the unopened flower bud.  Hand picked weekly throughout summer, sorted and packed in WA sea salt. The taste is unique, delicious and almost buttery. Very different to imported capers in vinegar.

Available from June each year and they sell out quickly.

Avocados

Certified Biodynamic Hass avocados.  Our avocados are large and creamy tasting.  They thrive with heavy mulching, compost and lots of water. Chickens and geese keep down the grass around the trees.  Hand picked from October to December, they are then sorted into sizes.  Did you know an Avocado only ripens once picked?  Hass avocados turn black as they ripen.  Supermarket avocados are sprayed to fasten ripening and hence they are black and bruised from other shoppers squeezing them.  We suggest you buy avocados weekly and ripen them yourself. We mainly sell unripe/green avocados for this reason.  For ripe avocados please order in advance.

Available at the  Margaret River Farmers Markets or purchase at Station Rd Greengrocers – October – December only.

Macadamias

The only certified biodynamic macadamias in Margaret River.  No other macadamias compare to the taste of freshly picked and cracked macadamias.  We dehusk, dry, crack and roast our macadamias on site, the nuts are sold farm fresh to the customer. Being a winter crop the nuts must dry out before cracking and are usually only available in summer.

Sold in shell, cracked raw and roasted, exclusively at the Margaret River Farmers Market.

Grazing Geese Cold Pressed Unfiltered Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Our Pendolino, Frantoio and Leccino olives were pressed at a local press in autumn. The fruit was hand picked from our certified biodynamic grove. The oil has a complex, pungent, grassy flavour with a peppery aftertaste. The flavour and health characteristics are best appreciated as a fresh young oil.  Our  olives receive lots of compost and mulch and thrive on the biodiversity of  life in our naturally enriched soil.   Our flock of geese graze all day, eating the grass under the trees and providing natural fertilizer.  The trees enjoy the Mediterranean climate of Margaret River. Mild summers and wet winters.

Also available at The Larder, Blue Ginger &  IGA in Margaret River or phone for a delivery.

 

Burnside Organic Farm Biodynamic Eggs

The only Certified Biodynamic eggs in Margaret River.  The chickens are rotated through different areas on our farm, eating green pasture and certified biodynamic grain. This allows them to produce eggs naturally full of omega 3’s as well as providing beautiful yellow yolk eggs.  The chickens are an integrated part of the farm, weeding and fertilizing the orchard, avocados and vineyard.

Available at  Station Road Greengrocers, Margaret River and sometimes at the markets in summer.

 

Three Boys Zinfandel Wine

Our biodynamically certified vineyard was planted in 2001. The unirrigated vines are close planted on lyre trellis in red gravelly loam soils.  The grapes are picked at perfect ripeness, open fermented in small vats and aged in a mix of old and new American oak barrels.  Malolatic fermentation takes place in the barrels. Minimal sulphur is added at bottling.

Our zinfandel is a full bodied wine with rich berry flavours with a hint of spice and vanilla.  Drink now or cellar for up to seven years.  Enjoy with aged cheeses, prosciutto, tomato based or meat dishes.

Zinfandel originated in Puglia, Southern Italy, where it is known as Primitivo.  The Puglian climate is similar to that of Margaret River. Dry warm summers and wet cool winters with a moderating maritime influence.

2008 Vintage – Medium bodied with lovely red berry flavours, touch a spice and chocolate.

Pretsel Vineyard was established in 1997 by Andrew and Bettina Pretsel. Particularly interested in the influence of terroir on the quality of wine, great effort was taken to find the perfect place to grow perfect wine grapes. Their search led them to a beautiful property north-west of Manjimup, opposite the Yanmah State Forest and surrounded on all other sides by picturesque farms. In a unique micro-climate created by the forest and gently undulating north-facing slopes with a generous supply of pristine water from the Ephraim Brook, the site was a text-book perfect discovery for growing winegrapes and many other gourmet products. Pretsel Vineyard has produced pleasing results for the last decade with all the wine grapes being blended into wine for an iconic Margaret River Winery.
