Do Yourself A Flavour…

Local Apples from Producer Hillside Harvest at Your Food Collective

Like Adam in the garden of Eden I was tempted.... 

It wasn’t the row upon row of apple laden trees ripe for the picking at Hillside Harvest that drove my mortal sin. Believe me they were close!

Local Apples from Local Producer Hillside Harvest at Your Food Collective

It was the scraggly tree at the end of the row...The last of the seasons nectarines. Only a few wrinkled, shrivelled fruits scattered on random branches. More like semi dried nectarines than anything else. Fruits that had been ripened in the long, hot summer sun.

Like Adam I was curious and took a bite...

I’ve never tasted anything so amazing!! A rich mature flavour, with hints of a summer sunburn.

Completely new….Fruit ripened on the tree.

Something that very few of us ever get close to. Most of the fruit we eat has been picked way before it reaches it's peak, perfect for sitting in storage and travelling on trucks.

‘We’ve replaced flavour for firmness and fuel laden travel’

Well not any more....

At Your Food Collective we’re bringing back the flavour, connecting you directly to The Jones family at Hillside Harvest just outside of Orange, you’ll be eating fruit picked to perfect straight from them to you.

Sophie and her team will keep your lunch boxes full all year round. On there 75 acre property they grow apples, pears, cherries, nectarines, peaches, plums and berries. A family you need to spend more time with. 

Their orchard is open year round and they are always happy to walk you through the rows of delicious fruit and berries. 

You can even pick your own! 

Fourth generation orchidist Sal is a wealth of knowledge on all things fruit and also pours a mean coffee. Sal is the first one to tell you that the climate in Orange is perfect for growing cold climate fruits. The winters are crisp and the summers are hot.

6 Cheeses that will change your life!

I tried all our Hunter Belle cheeses so you don’t have to… but after reading this you’ll surely want to! Let’s just start by saying… it was a tough gig! 6 delicious local cheeses over 5 days… spare a thought. :) I asked Lauren if there is some kind of method to this, you know 'start with the soft and work your way up to the hard' and she advised me to just dig in… and start eating… so that's what I did.
