At the Hayters Hill Farm butcher shop they do things the traditional way. The beef is aged to develop both its flavour and its tenderness; the hams, bacon and corned beef are cured using age-old techniques, avoiding the use of nitrates, and their ten varieties of sausages are made gluten and preservative-free, using unique spice blends and flavour combinations.
Their cattle and pigs are looked after in a stress-free, chemical-free environment, where the emphasis is on sustainable farming methods, and keeping production at a level that‘s kind to the animals and land.
Hemp could be the world’s ultimate eco-friendly health food. It’s packed with protein, Omega 3s, amino acids, vitamins and minerals, is gluten-free and contains no allergens. Hemp is also a sustainable food source. Hemp crops are highly pest, weed and drought resistant, do not require pesticides or herbicides, and use a lot less water than other food crops.
The use of hemp as food is growing in popularity all over the world. For the record, hemp grown as food contains no THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, and has no psychoactive effects.
The Hemp Foods Australia stall at the Mullumbimby Farmers’ Market stocks hemp seeds, protein, oil and soap.
A third generation farmer, that left home to become a doctor, Lindsay has followed his heart back to the ways of his family and started farming again. He has an interest in traditional breeds of poultry, turkeys and ducks, many of which have been lost in the last 50 years. Lindsay is working to reverse this destructive cycle and continues to breed traditional varieties of animals and educate the public, encouraging us to cultivate and keep these breeds alive in our own back. You will find him at the Mullum Market between October and January fortnightly.
I have had a passion for cooking for as long I can remember. I started off here by cooking for Harmony days at the Byron Community and now I’m lucky enough to be part of the Mullum Farmers Market.
I cook authentic Javanese cuisine and I love nothing more than sharing it with our local community.
I really like living in such a multi-cultural country it feels good to be a part of it. Plus I get to share the taste of Indonesian foods, our language and of course a few tips on places to visit when my customers holiday there.
