Our Mate’s Farm is a small family-run orchard offering certified organic heritage apples, fresh cold-pressed apple juice and other products including very tasty pork from the farm.
The apple juice can be sourced from Unpacked in Kingston where they sell the 250ml bottles of a range of juices with each one being labelled with the apple type that was used to make the juice (eg Braeburn, Pink Lady etc).
The other products include excellent pork products produced from pigs which are given access to pastures and spend their days searching for food to supplement their diet of apples.
The pastures they have access to have not been sprayed with any systemic products, so the apples and the pigs contain no traces of undesirable chemicals such as glyphosates.
The pork pieces that we have sourced from the Huon Valley Meat Co in Goulburn St have had lots of fat hence adding to the flavour of the meat. We have been cooking chunks of their pork belly in our long running Chinese Masterstock. When we want to use the meat, we crisp slices of it in a frypan and it is always delicious!
Their fruit and meat are definitely worth seeking out.

You can read our recipe for Asian Masterstock which we cook pork belly from Our Mate’s Farm until it is soft and unctuous. We then cut off small pieces and fry them to crisp them up and add them to salads and egg dishes.
