Rocky Creek Field Day coming in July

As part of the Rural Landholder Initiative, rural landholders in the Rocky Creek area are invited to an Off-stream Watering and Riparian Habitat Field Day.

On Tuesday 30 July Barrio welcomes restaurateur turned local farmer Palisa Anderson. She founded Boon Luck Farm, where she and her family grow hard-to-find Thai, native Australian, and heirloom produce to supply not only the many branches of her restaurant Chat Thai but a raft of other restaurants across New South Wales.

Expect Asian-inspired dishes using hard-to-source organic ingredients from the farm, when she works with Barrio head chef Francisco Smoje.

In addition to supplying the family’s own cafes, Palisa’s success has given her a world stage. Boon Luck Farm supplied Danish chef Rene Redzepi during his six-month Noma restaurant pop-up in Sydney in 2016 (he then asked her to address his Copenhagen MAD symposium for 1,000 of the world’s best chefs and restaurateurs) and also supplies Australia’s top restaurants including Momofuku, Quay, and Ester.

Jared Dixon is pairing his favourite Jilly Wines from his small-batch winemaking company based in Clunes. Each vintage is the culmination of a creative journey, and marks a time, and a place of creativity and inspiration that can never be reproduced in the same way.
