It’s been a big month for Alpine Nuts, having secured a huge win at the Australian Food Awards from the Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria. The awards aim to celebrate excellence in food production around Australia and the world and are used to benchmark exhibitors against industry standards.
Alpine Nuts won a Silver medal for their mildly flavoured creamy walnuts from the Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria. Their walnuts were scored based on flavour, texture and consistency. Their result was an impressive 87 out of 100, making their nuts some of the best in the state. This is a great achievement for Alpine Nuts, who pride themselves on having the freshest tasting nuts, all thanks to their sustainable farming practices.
Congratulations Alpine Nuts!
This month we would like to welcome back a few stallholders who will be bringing with them a lovely selection of cool climate produce. Clearview Organics, Kalyarni Natural Farms and Doonkuna Orchard will all be back at the markets over the next few weeks. We’re also expecting to see Alpine Nuts, Featherdale Chestnuts and Shades of Green back with their wonderful produce this month. We will also see the return of Jean Tipping Wildflowers, bringing with them their stunning array of flowers and Hill Lock Orchard with their beautiful persimmons.
You can expect to see some fantastic Autumn fare at the markets now that the weather is cooling down, including green walnuts, chestnuts that are perfect for roasting, juicy green kiwi fruit, new season spuds and apples, as well as leeks – perfect for those winter soups.
