  • Tips for Choosing the Right Butcher

    Choosing a good butcher Fremantle goes hand in hand with choosing the best meat. If you're searching for a reliable butchery, it means you're hoping to buy quality meats. There are types of meat that don’t necessarily offer the essential proteins, vitamins and other nutrients. Wholesale butchers Perth sell meat that is packed with these nutrients that can surely help you stay healthy. The best butcher shop Fremantle sells meat that comes from animals that were given only organic feed without any antibiotics, hormones or other drugs. Don't allow yourself to be fooled by the word natural on anything, including meat. There are no regulations on this word and it is usually used as a sales term. You just need to investigate further or read the label properly. Alternatively, you could purchase your meat from a reputable butcher shop Fremantle. Wholesale butchers Perth are likely to be able to trace the source of their meat and tell you exactly where it comes from. Some of them trade meat that comes from farms owned by the same holders, which is even better for you. They can thus surely guarantee the quality of the products. Over the last few decades the numerous food wholesalers Perth have revolutionized the way we shop for food. You cannot deny there is great convenience when you can buy a whole range of foodstuffs under one roof. In today's busy society many people don't have time to go to different places in order to buy what they need. Unfortunately, this can cost them a lot; their health often deteriorates and for no apparent reason. While you cannot say that small shops, like butcheries or bakeries, are necessarily better than all supermarkets, food quality is an issue that you cannot be neglected. While supermarkets provide a good range of food at low costs, high quality isn't always that important. A butcher shop Fremantle will usually be extremely concerned with quality and this is due to many aspects. Most of the Perth Butchers are independent, family run businesses, and they know they need to offer good products if they want to remain on the market. You may have to pay more than in a supermarket but you'll most probably get better flavor and quality for this. All small businesses try to reward their best customers and keep them happy, and most Perth butchers are no exception. Therefore, if you shop in one of them, you're bound to be given special deals. Trying to buy good meat can be a frustrating experience as there aren't that many reputable Perth butchers shops available. If you can't locate a good butcher Shop Fremantle, check the online shops and order from there. It will save you time and boost the quality of your meals.

  • Here we grow!

    A couple of weeks ago, I attended a really inspiring meeting of residents interested in setting up a Community Gardens Network in the Moreton Bay region. There was a great turnout from people with an amazing range of skills to offer. I have to admit, I was there for selfish reasons. One of my lifelong ambitions is to be a really good gardener, more specifically, a veggie gardener. I want to grow stuff and then cook it. I want to have such an abundance that I can leave free seedlings out the front for passers-by and share tomatoes and cucumbers over the fence with my neighbours… You get the idea. So far my attempts have been, well, meagre. I have harvested a bowl-full of broadbeans, a handful of spindly carrots and some pretty impressive Asian greens, but we’re not exactly self-sufficient. It’s quite clear that I need some guidance – and what better way to get access to experienced gardeners than a community garden? At the meeting, I was surprised to learn that “food insecurity” is an issue in our region. Food insecurity is “irregular access to safe, nutritionally adequate, culturally acceptable food” (source: The problem is exacerbated by having healthy-food retailers few and far between, easy access to fast food and inadequate public transport. I suppose I didn’t realise this was such an issue for people in my community because I am fortunate enough to be both healthy and mobile. Every Sunday, I visit both the Lions Club Market at the showgrounds and the Redcliffe Jetty markets to stock up on fresh fruit and veg for the week. But if I happen to miss the markets, I know how hard it is to find cheap, good quality produce around here. If you dig around (sorry, bad joke) you’ll discover there’s quite a lot of community gardening going on in Rddcliffe. There’s heaps of information on the Moreton Bay Regional Community Gardens Network website, and if you click on the link below you can find out where these groups of green thumbed individuals meet.  I also know of another group at the Redcliffe Botanical Gardens, email for information. Community gardens in Redcliffe The most inspiring speaker at the meeting was Bruce Molloy, founder of Veggie Village ( a massive community garden at Peregian on the Sunshine Coast, and also Edible Landscapes ( His story is fantastic – a graphic designer turned veggie guru with a passion for helping people grow their own at home. Bruce outlined the procedure involved in setting up a new community garden, and – to be honest – it’s a pretty daunting prospect. But he also pointed out that community gardening comes in many forms. Starting with your neighbours – share produce over the fence and grow different things so you have something to swap. I’m so lucky to live next door to an ex-farmer who is constantly offering me lettuce, carrots, beetroot, bananas and more. I think she’s taken pity on me and my limp tomato plants. Another form of community gardening is what’s known as “community shared agriculture”, where seasonal produce is delivered to your door. Food Connect is a fantastic service that delivers farmer-fresh produce into Redcliffe on a Thursday, find out more on Then there’s a movement called Permablitz, where a group of friends or like-minded people get together and spend a weekend transforming someone’s garden into a vegetable growing haven. Get inspired here: But of course all the best intentions begin at home, so I’ll carry on with my little veggie patch and get involved in some of these wonderful community groups. And hopefully I’ll grow some knowledge along the way.
