Otway Fields - Preserves, Pickles & Vinegars
Ami and Franz Hillege grow all their produce organically on their small farm, Otway Fields in the Victorian Otways. Once fruit and vegetables are harvested, they then create wonderful preserves using their produce, based on favourite family recipes. These delicious products will be available under their 'Otway Fields' label at Birregurra Festival and at the Birregurra Sunday Markets starting in November.
"We always have two or three Otway Fields organic jams on the go",
Forrest Brewery - Award Winning Brews
We're very lucky to have this terrific place a short drive from Birregurra where we can get a great meal, enjoy a cold brew on a hot day and listen to some local music. And even with the dining hall and boutique brewery in full swing, Matt & Sharon always seem to find time to get involved with the Birregurra community, especially at the Birregurra Festival.
Once again this year, you will find the Forrest Brewery team pulling their small batch artisan beers from their mobile brewery - a fabulous vintage Airstream - in the Festival Food & Wine Precinct.
"The Forrest Brewing Company, which now employs nine full time locals and another 15 casuals and this year two brews — the stout and pale ale — were recognised at the Australian International Beer Awards." Herald Sun, Thursday 24th Sept 2015 (Photo: Nicole Cleary) Read the full article here.
