The amazing Alice Waters once said "It's a comfort to always find pasta in the cupboard and garlic and parsley in the garden"
And we agree, but if you don't have any parsley in your garden, we have plenty in ours!
And we grow it all year round.
Meet Julia, she's the right-hand lady at @pocketcityfarms and is responsible for harvesting everything by hand, to make sure you get the cream of the crop in your box. ⠀
She says she loves throwing her kale through a pasta sauce or simply tossing through garlic and olive oil. 👌👌👌⠀
The American Farmer.....🚜🌱 It’s kind of in your blood💉

It’s about beliefs and values passed down through generations. 🙍🏼♀️🙎🏻♂️🙎🏼♂️ Ensuring things are left better for those yet to come. ITS ALL ABOUT THE LEGACY❤️ It’s missed dinners🥗
It’s missed ballgames⚾️🏀 It’s late nights and coming home to a house that’s already asleep. 😴
This man pours his heart and soul into our farm. Day in and day out. Thank you for being our guide and continuing the Legacy of Onken Farms.
Take a moment to think what you were doing this time last year, imagine if all of that was gone. Those beautiful memories, the smells and the colours... What a difference 12 months can make!
These photos were sent to me by @josephinefarriss.
The first lush beautiful green photos were taken on her Dads farm @andrew_farriss 12 months ago!
The last devastatingly dry photos were taken just a few weeks ago on her last trip home — what can we do to help!? #showusyourdustybits
As much as we are all about developing brands and creating beautiful visuals one of the most important values of our business is being socially aware and supporting our local community. Being located in Tamworth and Tenterfield we see first hand how drought affects families and the community at large.
Social Platforms are an amazing tool to communicate who you are and what you do in business but it’s also a great tool to create awareness about what is happening in the wider community.
We wanted to share a project developed to raise awareness about drought. @one_bucket is campaigning support by sharing personal stories of families and communities of the bush with our city cousins. Real, confronting, inspiring and hopeful tales aim to inform others of what drought is and raise much needed funds.
We want to support this important initiative to get the word out to help the people who do so much for us. Right now time is vital to make a difference and band together as Australians and look after our Bush Mates.

On tonight's menu: awareness and appreciation.
To most, this looks like a bowl of lettuce, on Its way to becoming a salad. And most would be correct. But there are a few particular qualifiers that make this lettuce deserving of a heart shaped bowl.
The seed that created the lettuce was carefully and meticulously cultivated with love in a sustainable way. The weeds that were removed so this head of lettuce could grow was done so with a hoe, operated by two very hard working hands. Then, it was harvested by me, who has the luxury of reaching down on my way out of work and grasping fresh produce. Finally, consumed without a worry of chemicals or reprocussions.
It is a tremendously humbling experience to EAT foods that I've witnessed grow and flourish at the dedicated caring hands of my coworkers.
Every. Single. Step.
Tuesdays = harvest share 😋
Looking to try my hand at real canning (as in making them shelf stable) this weekend and would love any tips & tricks you have to offer! Also any good squash soup recipes to freeze!
John Deere 3010. We have one, but ours doesn't look anything like this one! It has a tricycle front end, but we lost it to an engine fire years ago. We bought a donor and are planning to piece them together to have it running again one day. #TractorTuesday#farmheritage#GrowYourRoots
Episode 2 of Pork in one minute! Let me know if you have any questions!
In case you don't know the Unites States Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is who governs meat labeling.
USDA-FSIS definition of Natural:
A product containing no artificial ingredient or added color and is only minimally processed. Minimally processed means that the product was processed in a manner that does not fundamentally alter the product.

The new installment of our Farming for Generations series is up! 🎥
There’s nothing quite like growing up on a #familyfarm and no one knows that better than Victoria Floyd. As the third generation on her family’s farm, Tori has a deep understanding of the important role farmers and #agriculture play in the world. Life on the #farm has also taught her many valuable life lessons which she took a few minutes to share with us.
