Jamberoo Valley Farm’s new managers are excited to begin marketing their organically grown vegetables at the Kiama Farmer’s Market. Having taken over management of the farm for new owners some six months ago, Natacha and Dominic are planning to sell their produce at various markets in the district and are also hoping to supply local restaurants with farm-grown products that are currently not available from other local growers. While ensuring that the owners of Jamberoo Valley Farm have a plentiful supply of organic goodies for their Sydney restaurant, Natacha and Dominic are enthusiastic about the opportunity to sell locally.
Dominic originally hails from Darwin but Natacha’s family has a long association with the south coast and she has fond memories of times spent in the area when she was younger. The couple met when they were studying permaculture and the farm management systems that they use follow permaculture principles. Down the track tours of the stunning Jamberoo Valley Farm are on the agenda but at present the focus is on building up vegetable production. Micro greens have been identified as a new area of production, something for both home entertainers and local restaurants to look forward to.
Natacha and Dominic hope to get to the Kiama Farmers Market every week and will definitely be there at least fortnightly. Currently they are mainly offering lettuces, legumes, radishes and rocket but there are always a few extras. Their stall is at the Surf Club end of the markets. It’s well worth checking out, and remember to introduce yourself as a Slow Food Saddleback member.
