Recently, our friend, Gerard Buchanan of Buck’s farm, Chillingham, NSW, won the State Award for his Native Finger Limes.
There were four sections – Dairy, Earth, Paddock and Sea.
He won the Earth section, i.e. anything grown. There were 12 judges who were blindfolded to taste the produce. These judges were from all the top restaurants from around Australia.
Buck’s 350 acre farm grows just about everything – mangoes, avocados, finger limes, kaffir limes, buddha hands, Yuzu fruit, Turmeric, coffee plus plenty of Australian Bush Tucker Food.
It’s certainly worth a visit anytime you are near the Tweed area.
The national championships are coming up pretty soon so we hope he wins that too. You can view his site , www.bucksfarm.com.au
