Slender and filled with tiny, tangy jewels that burst in the mouth, finger limes are as intriguing as they are delicious. Mother Nature’s done everything for you. When you taste the lime, it’s got this lovely sweet and sour perfume, is very balanced and doesn’t need much else. We use finger limes on oysters, but I also like using them on margaritas so you get that lovely waft of native lime with your first mouthful.
We source our Finger Limes from Pemberton Finger Limes - run by Rob and Jill Baker. Pemberton Finger Limes have been twice nominated for a delicious. Produce Award and became a Medalist In 2014. These incredible Finger Limes are now available in our produce department for a short time!
Hall's Suzette is a 'Pont L'Eveque' style cheese made by 4th generation dairy farmers in the Harvey Area. The Hall family own and run the dairy where they have a commercial herd as well as a small herd of pure bred Normande Cow's. The only in Australia! Normande cows are a breed that was developed in the Normandy region of Northern France. This is where the original Pont l'Eveque cheese (protected by PDO) is made.
The use of this milk is significant not only because of the origin of this style of cheese, but also because of the quality of the milk they produce. These Normande cows produce a milk richer in protein and butterfat than your conventional dairy cow (Holstein). Perfect for cheese making. All this contributes to an extremely high quality and flavoursome cheese made right here in WA.
The cheese itself is a washed rind cheese made for the family by the head cheese maker at Harvey Cheese, less than a kilomtere away from the dairy. It is a square cheese that is rich and milky when young, full of lactic sweetness. As it ages, it becomes fudgier, developing nutty and smokey flavours.
Our cold smoked spiced sirloin is made from grass fed beef. Our experienced butchers traditionally smoke this sirloin, on-site, using apple, hickory & beech wood chips from Narrogin wood-chip specialist Jimmy Jesus. Smoking beef infuses a natural, smoky, aromatic flavour that brings an unrivaled tenderness to the cut.
With only 200 cases handcrafted each year, Camwell wine is the epitome of small batch. The grapes are grown sustainably with low intervention, focusing on keeping things as simple and natural as possible in the vineyard and in the winery.
