Welcome to The Farm Gate

May 31, 2010

Welcome to The Farm Gate by Nashdale Fruit Co’s virtual home.

The Farm Gate by Nashdale Fruit Co has brought the bounty of the farm direct to our loyal customers for more than ten years, servicing farmers’ markets across Sydney. Our home is now yours, as a virtual tree change is just one click away! 

In our new virtual home, we hope to bring the farm even closer to you by offering unique insights into the day-to-day workings of our family business. We will be posting regularly on everything from planting to harvesting, what we do on rainy days, advice about produce varieties and planting techniques, seasonal eating and recipes to make the most of our fresh produce, what is being packed for the markets, what our friends in the agriculture and restaurant industries are up to, and lots more!

Driven by our passion to grow, sell and educate, we hope that you enjoy discovering the journey of your food from paddock to plate, and look forward to your questions and feedback.

John, Katie, Beau and the rest of the team.

    Great to see your blog! Have been following you on twitter… Looking forward to following you on your journeys and in all honesty remaining a little envious of working the land. Keep up the great work.

    Have just been to Tasmania and eaten South Arm Pink Eye potatoes every night!!!! Haven’t been closer to Heaven ever before!!!!!
    Do you have them….or anything nearly as delicious? We live at Castle Hill so can catch up with you t the markets if you have them.

      Hi Heath

      Yes, the pink Eye is special. I refer to it as “the ugly duckling”. Not an attractive looking potato but delicious.

      For us it is a late season potato…it is our last dug potato, not dug by us until May. So yes we do have it.
      Do you believe it is not a good seller…. until bought by the customer for the first time.

      Two far better sellers are the Dutch Cream and the King Edward.
      We have Dutch Cream now , with the king Edward about 6 weeks time.

      John
