RASPBERRIES–the taste of summer direct from the Adelaide Hills.

Berry niceWith the late start to summer and the Christmas rush over the berries are now at there best. The raspberries along with their cousins, the English gooseberries, black currants ,and red and white currants are all ripe and dripping with flavour. All the berries are grown using biodynamic methods in a cool spring fed valley. We take the same care in picking our berries as we do growing them. This ensures only the best are sold. We don’t sell seconds for a couple of reasons-(1) the way they are grown and picked and (2) we do all our own value adding.

mixed berries

Shop garden

Our berries are only available from our farm shop which means they have travelled no more than 300 metres. While we are picking, people drop in to the farm tNirvana shopo buy berries. It is nice to stop picking for a few minutes and chat with regulars who enjoy buying directly from the producer. We receive direct feedback and the visitors take away high quality, fresh, biodynamic food.

Our farm shop is unique as it only sells our produce, fresh fruits in season and value added products made from our own fruit by Deb - 20+ varieties of jams and preserves to choose from Plus a range of Deb’s baskets hand crafted from materials growing at Nirvana and roadside weeds.

Shop 005

Nirvana Organic Farm is 5 kilometres from the Adelaide GPO the way the crow flies but for those who do not fly take the Stirling exit off the South Eastern Freeway , turn right at roundabout and travel 3.5 km to 184 Longwood Road HEATHFIELD. or check out your street directory UBD 157:G7 .

We are open Daily 9-5 during the berry season.

As the raspberries fade the Black Mulberry harvest begins.

My Little Veggie Hanger

by Sadge, at Firesign FarmAfter seeing yesterday's post from my co-writer Amy, I now have serious pot rack envy. I could really use the cupboard space freed up by hanging a few pots and pans, for food storage instead. The ceilings in our house are so low, though. Even a pot rack with a very low profile might be more in the way than useful; maybe look too cluttered. I think I'll tape up some paper

Apple Confirms White iPhone 4 for Spring 2011

New sings around Apple Store in the US has a text “The white iPhone 4 will be available spring 2011″ on them. Previous rumors told that Apple actually killed the whole white iPhone 4, but this now brings new life for it. Let’s see if they this time can actually release it, or if they’ll again postpone it.

Apple Ups Q1 Shipment Expectation to 21 Million Units

According to Taiwanese components suppliers, Apple will ship 21 million iPhone 4s in Q1 2011. This is up from 19 million that they expected to ship earlier. The regular iPhone 4 makes 14-15 million, while the CDMA iPhone makes the remaining 5-6 million.

My big, homemade pot rack

This pot rack is roughly 4 feet by 2 feet and made of galvanized piping.
by Amy of My Suburban Homestead

My dear husband made me this big pot rack for Christmas this year. 

Our house was built in the 70′s and has very low ceilings. I’ve attempted to put up a potrack before, but the pots hung way too low and had to take it down. And our house is very small–only 1,100 square feet, and

Frugal guilt

by Throwback at Trapper CreekWith the new year about to begin, the yearly urge to purge is coming on. Always with good intentions I bolt out the gate in January and fizzle out in a month or two. I want to be organized and finish all my projects, and sail through the year. This year will be that year, I hope... .Another thing that comes with the year end is the self-assessment we all do. Did I

One Hundred Ways To Save Money in 2011 Part I

By: Notes From The Frugal TrenchesHappy Holidays to you & yours! As the Holiday Season closes and the New Year approaches, I've been thinking a lot about the frugal life in 2011. Saving money can feel like a long hard road and while it certainly takes determination, sacrifice and motivation to get out of debt and save, there are hundreds, if not thousands of ways we can live more frugally!

Waxing Cheese

by Gavin from The Greening of Gavin

As I make many different cheeses, and post video tutorials about how to make them, I thought that in this post that I would show everyone how to wax a cheese.
The cheese wax is a special formulation and is not the same as paraffin or candle wax.  That type of wax is too brittle to be used to coat cheese, as the cheese needs a solid yet flexible covering to

Pruning Saw

by FrancescaFuoriBorgoAre you in need of a last-minute present idea for a gardener? Or are you a gardener with limited storage space and room for only the essential tools? In either case, a pruning saw might be the tool for you!I fall into the second category: I'm a gardener who's limited by a serious space shortage, which means I can only keep a handful of essential hand tools. About a month

My new best friend

By Aurora from Island Dreaming

I have always had a thing for brand new stationery; indeed I was delighted, aged four, when I came down on Christmas morning to find an executive desk and chair set with all the (admittedly plastic and cartoon animal themed) accessories, filing drawers, blank papers and new pens a 4 year old could possibly want. I loved filing, I loved writing notes and memos, I

Seasonal Fun for Families - Summer

By Belfrom Spiral GardenSunshine and holidays inspire activity and new beginnings.Family traditions help build beautiful childhood memories and nourish us in times of uncertainty. We honour the seasons through our awareness of the cyclic changes in nature. Taking a cue from our environment, we can alter our diet, our routines and our wardrobe to suit the weather and the days’ activities. Thrill

Meringue Cookies, Easy Blender Hollandaise Sauce

by Sadge, at Firesign FarmAt Christmas time, my grandma used to make these melt-in-your-mouth meringue cookies. She'd make hers all chocolate chip, tinting half the batch red (more like pink) and the other half green. I loved them so much, I just had to get her recipe. I then adapted it to make two flavors from one batch of cookie batter. I leave the chocolate chip half of the batch white, to

greedy gosling

According to this young goslings the shahtoot mulberry near our veranda, along with another tree in the mixed fruit orchard, belongs to it.It spends its day alone cruising between the two mulberries trees.It is not alone in liking these sweet fruits as the tree is constantly visited by wattle birds, silvereyes and blackbirds.These birds are quite clumsy and knock the mulberries down to the delight of the gosling.The gosling has also learnt to jump up and grab lower limbs and shake off the mulberries.

Homemade Nutella (hazelnut-chocolate spread)

by My Suburban Homestead 

Today I discovered by accident that it is easy to make Nutalla from scratch. Here's what happened:

My husband saw a jar of leftover hazelnuts that I had from making hazelnut mashed potatoes and he said: "Hey, why don't you make some hazelnut butter? That sounds good." So I proceeded to make some hazelnut butter.

If you've never made your own nut butters before, the

These Little Piggies Came Home Stinky

by Danelle @ My Total Perspective Vortex

There's no way to sweeten the ideal, we are pig farmers and have three rough and tumble kids under 7. That means I do a LOT of laundry and deal with a lot of really bad smells. Those of you with kids and or pigs probably know that the majority of these smells come from the kids!

But there is a catch, everyone in our house is allergic to commercial

Brown Paper Packages Tied up with String

by Chiot's RunI'm always game to save money in any way I can. Gift wrapping can be very expensive, even if you buy it on sale after the holidays, and buying something that you're just going to recycle and throw away seems a little crazy. One inexpensive way to wrap gifts is by using brown kraft paper. You can buy it in big rolls very inexpensively at home improvement stores, but I find that if

Homemade Jerky

by Throwback at Trapper CreekI have a few hard to buy for omnivores on my Christmas list and the other day the idea of homemade jerky popped into my head. Making jerky was a hit-or-miss affair at my house, and I never really liked the end result or the ingredients in the recipes. And then one day I happened upon a fine blog and an even finer jerky recipe (among all his other fine recipes.) It

Preparing For The New Year - A Simple, Green & Frugal 2011

By Notes From The Frugal TrenchesSlowly but surely I find my confidence growing. I've blogged before about a little internal battle I faced, feeling like I wasn't ever going to succeed at the green or frugal life because I couldn't knit or sew and didn't have a homestead for my own chickens, bees and garden. In 2010 I finally understood the truth, there isn't one prescription for a simple, green

Saving Time and Energy with a Pressure Cooker

by Gavin from The Greening of Gavin.

On Sunday night, I cooked our dinner in my pressure cooker.  Since this piece of cookware was given to me two years ago, I have used it at least twice a month and the results have always been outstanding,  just as I remember from my childhood.  My mother had a pressure cooker and preapared lots of the family meals in it.  Quick, simple and you can use very

Looxcie Wearable Camcorder Now Supports The iPhone

(modified) Pretzels

by FrancescaFuoriBorgo When I wrote about Batch Baking, I mentioned making pretzels, and a few of you asked how I make them. I make soft pretzels, which are traditionally made from a simple dough of flour, yeast, water and (usually) some butter, which is cut and rolled into strips that are looped in the distinctive pretzel shape, then boiled, sprinkled with salt, and baked. They are very easy

Introducing myself

Aurora, at Island Dreaming.

This is my first post here; so I will take this opportunity to introduce myself. I am battling a bug at the moment, I apologise that this is short and photo-light.

I have always been interested in environmental issues. My university education was focused upon the technical aspects of solving various environmental problems - waste management, contaminated land and

Samsung Epic 4G Media Hub Update Causing Battery Life Issues, Workaround Detailed

Reusable Present Wrappings

Young mothers-to-be used to carefully undo the wrapping

Pineapple Cranberry Salad

Here's a great Pineapple Cranberry Sauce recipe someone shared at Dr. Fuhrman's Member Support Center: cook 1 package of cranberries with 1 can of crushed pineapple until the berries pop. Stir in 2 tablespoons agave, maple syrup, or date sugar (to taste, we liked it a bit tart), 1/4 teaspoon almond extract, and some chopped pecans.

We enjoyed this as a side dish at Thanksgiving, but I love it even more as a salad topping, mixed into a salad with chopped apple and pecans. I packed us whole apples to slice into the salad at lunchtime, so they don't turn brown.

The gel-cool bentos are filled with Fennel Cucumber Salad from my first book, garnished with a kalamata olive. (BTW, the side dishes fit perfectly in the top compartments of our To-Go Ware containers, even with the lids on, but I've ordered large stainless steel sidekicks for the future, because I prefer them to plastic.)

P.S. This picture sucks! You can't even see the cute little smiley faces on the apple picks holding the olives. Oh well, I was running out the door this morning and took it with my iphone. Bad shmoo!
