A long over due update to this post.

Hi everyone, thank you for your responses and people that have emailed.

I don’t sell eggs outside the tip anymore and haven’t for a year now.
All the eggs go to Zucchero in Manuka and Du Jour in New Acton.

Ours will always be a small farm with happy chickens and an equally happy
chef who loves fresh and local produce.

However, chickens will be sold every so often. Around fifty this Xmas 2008

Details on our website link below.

Thanks Riotact which reminds me I need to put up a link for them. 🙂

I’d never seen the devastation before moving to Burra. Never in two decades did I see that in Michelago!
A neighbour told me they saw the locust eggs recently- I hope not. There’s just nothing you can do.

Anyway for an update on the free range CHICKEN eggs. They were all sold on Saturday. Only had three people complain about the price. “I could buy them for 2.50 per dozen” well I know in the major supermarkets the cheapest you’ll get free range is 3.99 on special and normal price is 5.65 but are they actually free range and how old are they? I really don’t see why people complain when they are not forced to buy. It seems people that know their eggs are happy to pay 5 bucks for ridgee didge local fresh produce. If I sold for less I would be giving them away. Perhaps this weekend I will advertise the price and in that way not annoy people having to stop to enquire.

Yep, last summer they evaporated. I hope they don’t come back for a while. They got worse and worse up here every summer, and then last summer they just went. I’m up above Canberra, and we had them from 2003 onwards. They were evil, they ate everything. They killed everything, even trees.

Those tiny locust/grasshoppers were even in town one year (2004?) and they said they would lay eggs and get worse every year, but I don’t remember any last year – maybe the drought has got them too.

Those horrible locusts. They’ve been wrecking everything up here since 2003, but last summer they didn’t come. Before I left here for the US in December, they were hopping around as usual, but they never “hit” as they have every summer since the fires. these are “wingless grasshoppers” but boy they made a mess.

We sell our apples out of the farm in Pialligo, and fingers crossed it should be a decent crop. It’s really gutting, you work all year for the crop, and a frost, or wind, or a hailstorm, or new and motivated pests can do for it, in an instant. It might be my imagination, but these bad events have become for frequent recently.

Yes, we’re hoping we don’t get the locusts this year. Please let me know when you have a crop , should be good this year with the bit of rain.
Hope so !

From late summer onwards. We had nothing this year, that frost last year got the LOT. People come from all over the region for our apples, and those of our neighbours. Fingers crossed it doesn’t happen this year (and no hailstorms when the apples are ripening).

BTW ant – we eat many apples! Where are you selling apples?
