News from Forrest Foods

Welcome to the Forrest Foods newsletter. We've had a dry spring in the Otway ranges this year which always provides a few challenges for us farmers. However, some big thunder and lightening storms in October released lots of nitrogen into the atmosphere which really activated our shiitake mushrooms. We are so pleased with the quality of our crop at the moment with plenty of very high quality shiitakes growing in our mushroom shed. We are currently taking orders for delivery now up until Christmas so get in early and get hold of some of Australia's best premium shiitake mushrooms. Contact Paul on paul@forrestfoods.com.au or 0488716824 to order.

In October, we took part in the food industry festival Extravaganza Geelong. Forrest Foods was lucky enough to watch chef Matt Wilkinson create a masterpiece with our fresh shiitakes. The event was a great chance for us to meet local chefs and network with food industry reps from the Geelong region. We look forward to seeing fresh Forrest Foods shiitakes on a few local menus in the coming months!

Rose Veal

Forrest Foods also grows a small amount of quality rose veal each year. We are currently processing our final 12 animals for this year and once they're gone, that's it until October 2016.
Our rose vealers are milk and grain reared for four months, then weaned onto big grassy paddocks for the remaining two months. The meat is tender and very flavoursome, with a light pink colour. Forrest Foods rose veal is sold in quarters, halves or whole animals and is priced at $12.50 kg delivered. Contact Paul for more information.
Six month old rose vealers grazing on our Otway farm. Rose veal is vital to the sustainability of the dairy industry in Australia. It first became popular in the UK after the plight of male "bobby calves" was highlighted by animal activist groups. Our rose veal calves are reared in the Otways on quality pasture for six months. The meat is tender and more pink in colour than milk veal, hence the name Rose Veal.
