fat pig farm picnics

Once again I've spent the week pinching myself at how lucky I am to get to work on such great projects.   This week it was at the lovely Fat Pig Farm preparing delicious food and helping to make everything look stylishly country.  No hardship at such a pretty location, merely a length of bunting is all that's required.  Fat Pig Farm's seasonal picnics ramped up a notch this summer by running over five days and feeding 250 people simple fare grown or produced within cooee of the farm.   There were sweet little hampers complete with baguettes, goats cheese, ham and little meat pies wrapped up with brown paper and string.  Followed by a huge bbq and then to finish, little jars filled with rhubarb, yoghurt, farm honey and nuts. A little shortbread was handed out as a parting gift. Hurried photos below snapped in between courses.

Getting up early at 5am to bake fifty walnut shortbreads may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I certainly loved every minute.  I mean really, romping through paddocks, wearing gum boots, and preparing good food with really nice people?  Gosh, what's not to love.





 


 




These school holidays I've spent a fair (most) of my time working, but tomorrow we head off to Bruny Island to go camping with the peeps for some much needed down time. I've got lists to write, food to pack and torches to check before we head off. I truly can not wait.   I will not have any email!  For five whole days!  See you when I get back. xx
