Au Revoir Brussels

We're sorry to say this is the last weekend this season for Brussels sprouts. We first met Nathalie (pictured) and Johan Wolfert at Burnie Farmers' market back in the autumn. Until this year the Wolferts from Kindred were harvesting 270 tonnes of sprouts a year, including 200 tonnes for McCains. One day, the man from McCains arrived - without notice - and said, "That's it." They now produce 70 tonnes of sprouts for the local fresh market. Oh McCains, you've done it again... Nathalie, we look forward to seeing you again next year, thank you!

The Wolfert's produce is Freshcare accredited.
