YFC Unplugged - Lauren Branson

Local YFC Unplugged - Lauren Branson

Taking the plunge....       by Lauren Branson

I’m not sure where it all began…

I’m pretty sure having children had something to do with it, it completely changes you.

I guess you’re more invested in the future, and with five kids some would say I’m heavily invested!

So that’s what got me thinking, how can I make sure I don't wake up in twenty years time with massive regrets? Am I following my dreams? Building a better world?

It all sounds pretty cliché, but that kind of stuff goes through your head as the years pass you by.... the bigger picture just jumps up and grabs you.

So, I dug deep, rescued my passion, and bought myself some time.

Yes I’m passionate about Food

           not in a fancy way, just fresh, wholesome food, eaten simply between friends.

But in our busy lives it's really hard to find fresh, local food, and I guarantee you it’s not being dished up by our supermarkets!

Where is all the fresh food?

We drive past it on road trips; the odd farm-gate sale, a local fish co-op. Producers are selling it once a month at local farmers markets and we see photos of it growing in foodie magazines.

But in reality, how does that help me dish up three solid meals a day?

That’s how I ended up here, creating what I know is going to be a tastier, fairer, healthier food system.

Over a broken conversation on a family weekend away I convinced my cousin Cara to join me, there's no way I could sail this ship alone! Then after some heavy spreadsheet sessions and a few lunches in the park with my amazingly supportive husband we were all systems go.

The rest, so far has brought you here. To where you can start your journey, eating deliciously, tasty local produce purchased directly from local producers you know.

                     So join us, be part of the journey to ‘make local easy

 P.S. Don't wait until tomorrow to do something that feels good and tastes better. The small things we do every day are what shapes the future, what does yours look like?

HELLO SUMMER: Your Guide to eating with the Seasons

For us it’s the smell of jasmine on the streets, the feeling of sand between your toes and a whole lot of trails, yeah! Excitingly it’s also a great time for produce. The fields are a buzz with spring crops that are starting to mature and all those delicious fruits you’ve been dreaming of are almost ready. Milk production is in full swing and kombucha has set a cracking pace.
