Story telling from Australia
Look what arrived the day after we got back from William Creek.
I never thought I’d get excited at the prospect of an eighth of a cow arriving at the front door but even a committed vegetarian like me couldn’t fail to be impressed by The Conscious Farmer’s grass fed beef: no hormones, no antibiotics and sustainably farmed on chemical free pastures, delivered direct from the farmer to our front door in Sydney.
Maggie quickly sniffed out there were bones in one of the boxes (thanks Derek!) and I was mightily impressed with the clean, well labelled packets of every cut of beef imaginable, along with sausages and mince. It was all ready to drop into the freezer and it worked out at a very reasonable $16 a kilo.
Many of the farmers I interviewed for my next book deliver direct to customers in Tasmania, Queensland and Victoria and I can’t help thinking that’s a better way to buy than from supermarkets.
As a vegetarian who’s not keen on butcher’s shops (with a hungry carnivorous partner who doesn’t cook) this is the perfect solution for me.
Even Clyde will have his work cut out getting through that lot. No doubt he’ll give it his best shot.
