Losing Tash (Natasha Amy Thorpe)

By | Nutrition | No Comments
Mother’s Day 2020, Tash (with the beautiful smile) in the black leather jacket

You hear these tragic things on the news, but never expect it to hit so close to home, to someone you love. The “young mum from Toowoomba” on the news, who drowned at Coolum on Monday morning, is my sister Tash.

We’ve never lost someone so close to us before, so the grieving process is like unchartered waters. Tash was loved by so many. I’ve just got back from being with my family at Coolum and we were visited by waves of our beautiful extended family and friends. So much support and love.

For now we will keep Birdsong open, and I will keep you posted if/when we need to close or make adjustments to our usual routine, while we move through the next few weeks.

I’ll keep this brief today, but definitely want to write more of a tribute to Tash soon. I just needed to let you all know.

One of the last photos Tash sent me, the day before she passed.

Birdsong Closed, Sept. 12-19th (inclusive)

By | Nutrition | No Comments

Spring is here! The change of seasons creates one of the best opportunities for seasonal farmers like ourselves to take a break.

So Birdsong will be closed from Saturday September 12th- Saturday September 19th (inclusive).

Please make sure you place your orders this week (up until this Friday 11th September) if you need anything before we close.

Meringandan Deliveries?

By | Nutrition | No Comments

We’ve had a request for deliveries to Meringandan, along with the Highfields deliveries. Anyone interested? We’d need at least 3 orders going out there (on the Wednesday 3-4pm run) to make it worthwhile.

Like the Highfields run, it would be a $5 fee, and no minimum spend. The Highfields delivery run item would need to be added to your cart.

BUT, it’s not definite yet, we’re looking to see if enough people are interested first. You can either comment on this post or email me at racheal@birdsongmarketgarden.com.au to enquire.

Quick Baby Spinach Salad

By | Nutrition | One Comment

The beautiful mild weather we’ve been having means that salad is still on the menu here 🙂 Here’s a quick and tasty salad, based mainly on pantry ingredients…

Quick Baby Spinach Salad

200g baby spinach

1/4 C Sun-dried tomatoes

1/2 C toasted walnuts

1/4 C pitted kalamata olives

Sprinkle of Styrian pepitas

Sprinkle of parmesan or remano cheese

Salad dressing of choice (we often use a balsamic vinaigrette)

Directions:

Arrange spinach on a platter (we find using a salad bowl with baby spinach just causes all the smaller ingredients to get lost under the leaves).

Then sprinkle the remaining ingredients over the spinach and serve.

Australian Grown

By | Farm Gate Stall | No Comments

In light of recent events and more people stopping to think about where some of their produce is really coming from, I want to give you a quick highlight of the Australian grown dry goods that we have on offer at Birdsong.

First up is the Certified Organic Sunflower Kernals.

Our rolled oats are also Certified organic and both grown and milled in Australia.

The macrobiotic sea salt, harvested from the Great Barrier Reef and the Great Australian Bight.

Our raw almonds are also Certified Organic and Australian grown.

And the sultanas are also grown right here in Australia 🙂
