(Epicurean; one who finds pleasure in fine food, harvest; the process or period of gathering in crops)
Epicurean Harvest is a small certified organic market garden/farm growing a diverse range of unique vegetables in the higher altitudes of Blue Mountains, surrounded by Heritage National Park, just west of Sydney. The cool climate differs from the Sydney Basin, allowing for slower growing, sweeter, more flavoursome vegetables that Erika and Hayden, the founders, harvest all by hand and deliver themselves to restaurant kitchens within 12 hours of being picked. The goals for Erika and Hayden aren’t just to grow and supply an array of highly nutritious vegetables, but to develop a relationship with the land on which they grow; to nurture the soils, the springs and the surroundings, and share that relationship with the customers that choose to use their produce. The couple met at University, studying Horticultural Science, and believe wholeheartedly in the importance of connecting the eating back to the growing.
First Farm Organics
An organic market garden growing open pollinated heirloom vegetables, berries, fruits and flowers to order. The farm is situated on 40-acres and is nestled in the Kanimbla Valley in the Blue Mountains.
Our gardening is based on organic practises. No use of systemic pesticides are used, instead we use a crop rotation system with green manure crops to maintain fertility of the soils, which in most cases fights off infestations of pests.
Our motto is… grow the soil and the soil will grow for you!
Fabrice works closely with our restaurant. He also sells at farmers markets, the Blue Mountains Food Co-Op and farm-gate sales.
Advance planning for the next season’s crops is vital. The sowing of seeds, transplanting and growing on is continuous to meet the ever-changing seasonal menus.
