We’re so sorry to have to share some very sad news ….

We lost Greta’s baby,

Day 6 and he had a seizure, we rushed him to an after-hours goat expert vet, but with all the help he never turned around.

He died surrounded by all of us 24 hours later,
Greta, Hannah and Nathan .. just in disbelief of what just happened πŸ˜“

We made a huge space for him,
Greta just adored him as we all did
Everyone has been numb,

We were still trialing names ….
Giovanni was the last.

This called for a family photo … We are so excited!! It’s a farm first !!

We are focussed on passive milking which means we will fit in around her kids … with no need for them to be taken away βœ¨πŸπŸ‘Œ

This will be our departure from the retail dairy industry ….

We are busy educating ourselves on making goat milk products, soon β€˜Feta from Greta’ …will be added to our Farm Gate range ….

We have some big news updates πŸ”Š

Firstly … a big change to our family …..

Thanks to the support from you and the hard work we do at Farm Gate.
Nathan has been able to resign from his dreaded gov office job of 14 years and take up a full time horticulture role at a local family run production nursery…much closer to our own farm 🌱✨πŸͺ΄πŸŒΏ

Learning new skills that will make Farm Gate even more productive = more veggie boxes πŸ₯¬πŸ₯•πŸŒ½πŸ§…πŸ«‘πŸ‘πŸ§…πŸ§„πŸ‹πŸ₯”πŸ₯šπŸπŸ

Also a big uniform change !

It’s never to late to change your life …!

Jimadiah appreciation βœ¨πŸ™ŒπŸ’™

Jimadiah .. is 4, the son of Billy and Moussi, born on our farm, making a working Maremma team of 3. All a family unit … very much like a lion pride. Always watching πŸ‘€

We have Geese/Turkey/Ducks also a Peacock and plus so many laying hens not to forget the sheep and goats … all able to live safely thanks to our dedicated guardian dogs

The best part is we also get to hang out with them, they love hugs, pats, a chat and are always with us when we are out in the paddocks … which is most of the time ….
We are all one big family.

Plus pound puppy Tim (house dog) that makes 4 …. What’s it like having 4 dogs?
……It’s ✨*dreamy*✨

Seed saving ..

When we won overall champion vegetable exhibition for our β€˜box of home produce’ at the Mount Pleasant show, we also won a few individual places too
One being ~

πŸ₯’πŸ₯’Lebanese Cucumbers πŸ₯’πŸ₯’

(Even though it was so late in the season ..we managed to rustle up an entry😬)

You can bet we included these first place winners in our annual seed saving!
To be planted for this coming summers crop, for your veggie boxes and for the next Mount Pleasant show πŸ₯‡

Prize winning organic veggies taste better right ?

Farm Gate winter update πŸŒ§οΈβ„οΈ

They call winter the hungry months.

For us organic veggie growers, it’s a time to do a lot of prep for spring and a lot of w**ding! 🌱
This year our garlic crop is best described as β€œGiant” ! πŸ§„

Garlic doesn’t cope well with competition so as soon as they are in …. It’s β€˜game on’ with the winter w**ds…. 🌱🌱🌱🌱

We trialed organic powdered garlic with a few of our VIP customers and received raving reviews and instant orders …. So we’ve invested in a peeling machine so we can offer it alongside the annual crop πŸ§„ keep an eye out, we’ll show you how we do it here on our page πŸ‘ŒπŸ§„πŸ‘Œβœ¨πŸ§„
In the meantime we’ll be nursing our biggest garlic crop to the finish line … πŸ™ŒπŸ§„πŸŒ±πŸ‘Œβœ¨

Keep warm!

The Garlic is in ! πŸ§„πŸ§„

Also lots of different varieties of Kale, Broccoli, Caulie’s (including the fan fave purple) and classic Detroit Beetroot, plus rows of other nutrient rich vibrant greens πŸ₯¬

All our veggies are propagated by us in seed trays ..(so many trays ! )… In our giant home made giant seed pod we built from scratch ourselves, 🌱

While it’s a slim time of the season, we are still busy …. Is it really work when you’re creating edible plants ?

Stay tuned for the

We entered a slimmed down box/basket of our veggies into the Mount Pleasant show today (one of South Australia’s biggest country shows)

We won first prize and then it went on to win champion exhibit!!😡🀩
There were so many entries!!!!

A huge thank you to all of our supporters,

We’ve been busy !!

Now that the shortest summer we’ve ever had on the farm is ending, we wind down and focus on our β€˜23 garlic crop and some huge changes coming for the upcoming summer season.

Despite the long and wet winter, our garlic harvest was great! It will be tidied and packed, ready for the shop πŸ§„

We have created a whole new garden on a higher section of our farm. It’s substantially bigger and will enable us to take on so many more new customers .. Stay tuned for pics ….

We have a lot to update you on!
We hope you’re ready!

The future is bright, packed full of the freshest organic veggies, and other surprises too

All grown and made by just us πŸ™Œ

See you soon

I’d like to say it’s been quiet !!
But it’s been soo wet and wild !

We have a creek running through our original veggie garden (we have 2 other plots doing better !) It’s been hard getting actual time in the garden when it’s not pouring ! ...

We are keen and we will persevere πŸ’ͺ

In the meantime checkout our winter crop of garlic .... So close to harvest .....
There are so many !!!

While we wait on carrots and a few more winter veggies to be ready ...

Let us introduce, a future permaculture goal for us ...
Greta (left) and her brother Gunter, our purebred Toggenburg dairy goats ....with bodyguard and everyone’s bestie Maremma Billy

Perfect for permaculture, we raised them from tiny kids, we love them dearly and hope to make cheeses, dairy and soaps πŸ™Œ
Both already upskilled in supervised tethering on their favourite w**d patches ✨🐐🐐
They have proven themselves to be so valuable in w**d control🌿🌱 πŸ™Œ

We hope to have β€˜Feta from Greta’ as part of our farm gate range in due course 🐐🐐

We’ve had a rush of new followers in the last week and are thankful and excited, the future of Farm Gate Garden looks bright !
