“The delicious. Harvey Norman Produce Awards continue to celebrate new, innovative, native and consistently outstanding Australian ingredients grown, caught, sourced or produced with dedication, passion, knowledge and regard for the environment. The awards influence what you may see on restaurant menus for the next year to come, but most importantly give credit to the people who care for the produce that lands on our plates. It has never been more important to get behind our farmers and small producers. They need our help. I thank all of the State Judges for the time and passion they give to these awards, and congratulations to all the State Winners.”
Jono and Nat run their farm on a chemical free, holistic and regenerative farming principles, with their British Whites on a purely grass fed diet. By “strip” or “cell” grazing their finishers, the British Whites have proven their ability to hold their own under all conditions and able to provide a premium grass fed beef product.
The delicious Produce Awards are one of the food industries highest awards, and the State win now entitles Brooklands to enter for the finals with judging commencing early May and winner announced at a special event in Sydney on 19th August. There are 12 finals judges, Maggie Beer, Alla Wolf-Tasker, Matt Moran, Neil Perry, Shannon Bennet are just some of the names on the highly acclaimed judging panel for a blind tasting.
“A win in the finals would be amazing for raising the profile of the British White breed of cattle, we have a vision of British White Beef gracing some ofAustralia’s top restaurants and butcheries, and we need more breeders on board as the demand rises” said Natalie.
We would like to wish Jono, Nats & Ruby from Brooklands Free Range Farms the best of luck for the finals.
