Did you know the Market has one very special stallholder who actually makes their own tea? Russell and Lyn from Windellama Organics are creating their own herbal teas made from their own dried herbs – and with no black or green tea in sight!
Russell and Lyn farm on their property in Windellama NSW, which is situated to the east of Lake George, between Canberra and the South Coast on the Southern Tablelands of NSW. The farm is organically certified and there they grow stone fruits, vegetables, and free-range eggs which they sell at Market. And it’s their teas which have been gaining attention of late. They’re producing a range of around 15 tea blends that can be enjoyed hot or cold with varieties including their Lemon Thyme and Ginger tea, and their BOOST tea made with all organic nettle, black peppermint, raspberry leaf and aromatic heritage pink rose petal. Other varieties include Chamomile Plus, Princess Grey, Clean & Green and Black Velvet.
Stop in and see Russell and Lyn on your next visit to Market and take home a blend for your own delicious cuppa.
The Johnsons know a lot about hard work. Husband and wife team Sam and Claire Johnson run Boxgum Grazing on Windermere, a 1500 hectare property near Young on the South West slopes of NSW. Passionate about farming and land management, the farm supports a diverse mix of perennial grasses and box gum woodlands and their management is focused on increasing the biodiversity and biological health of the landscape.
They produce 100% grass-fed beef and genuine free-range pastured pork, which they market directly to customers in their region. Selling only what they produce, the Johnsons truly understand the vital connection between healthy land and healthy food, and promote that when dealing with Boxgum customers are dealing directly with the farmers and can get to know comprehensively the provenance of the food and how it is produced. You can meet Sam and Claire at Market each week and try their products for yourself to taste the difference.
Two farmers from Bungendore NSW have a unique technique for growing their produce. Sue Armstrong and Greg Oliver have been farming at Greenhill Farm for over 20 years producing a wide range of summer and winter veggies, and 100% grass-fed beef from a farm bred, Angus-based herd whilst being certified biodynamic farmers.
Sue and Greg have been a part of the Capital Region Farmers Market for 12 years.
They currently bring a wide range of summer and winter veggies such as carrots, potatoes and parsnips to the markets and enjoy building relationships with their customers.
As a certified biodynamic farm, Greenhill Farm has a strong focus on sustainability and significantly healthier food and produce.
We enjoy having these farmers as part of our markets and look forward each week to their new fresh produce.
