Green Eggs on the “foodie” trail

Green-Eggs-220x300Guess who are the latest producers to join the ‘Paddock2Plate’ mobile app, aka “foodie footsteps”!

We are excited to be adding Alan and Shelley Green of Green Eggs to our growing list of farmers that can be found along our food trails in Victoria and Western Australia (…so far).

Here’s a little bit of info from the Green Eggs website: Located at Great Western near Ararat on the foothills of the Grampians (just over 200km, from Melbourne) the Green Eggs girls have 480 hectares upon which to shake their tail feathers. Green Eggs are Green Eggs because the Greens run the place! Head rooster Alan Green and his beloved hen Shelley Green apply sustainable and ethical farming practices. For the Greens, freshness and quality only come from happy and healthy hens.

For producers… this app promotes and supports your business, while boosting the local economy.

For everyone else… this app will assist you in finding farm gates and embarking on food trails where you can purchase produce directly from local farmers throughout the state.

Download the FREE app from the App Store today and start planning your next “foodie” trip in rural and regional Australia.

Spread the word about this app on your social media pages and don’t forget to tag us. There is a ‘From Paddock to Plate’ Facebook page, Instagram account (@paddockproduce) and Twitter feed (@paddockproduce).

Country teen tells Q&A young people can afford a house

A teenager from a farming family in western Victoria says young people can afford to buy a house if they’re prepared to move to the country and sweep floors. Jock Maddern, from a small town of 800 people near the South Australian border, had a suggestion for fellow high school students on a special episode of Q&A. #FromPaddocktoPlate #feedyourmind
