It’s really lovely to buy Local

The Central West of NSW is known as the food bowl of NSW, and this bowl is positively overflowing with an abundance of delicious, local apples, pears and stoned fruit, a huge variety of artisanal produce, and not forgetting a glass or two of boutique, cold climate wine!

Over the last few years, Orange has become one of Australia’s premiere foodie destinations, with many seasonal events and festivals celebrating the local delights, and of course our very own monthly Orange Farmers Market brimming with award winning, artisanal produce too. 

We at Millamolong are proud to support the local businesses, and producers whenever we can.  We have committed to only buying fruit for our Milla Cordials and Milla Bush Tonics from Australian producers. 

But our very own local deli, A Slice of Orange, is making even more noise for the buy local campaign, by introducing into our local Harris Farm Market a huge and diverse range of products from the best local growers and producers around. With a dedicated section in the centre of the store, it is easy to seek out the local gems, and make a choice to support the immediate community.

 

“A Slice of Orange was founded on the basis that eating locally is a logical and necessary part of our daily routine. Buy choosing to support local artisan producers, you can be assured that you are eating food at its most optimal level of freshness and when in season. An intimate knowledge of how your food is grown, and by whom, and the processes it has gone through are essential for the wellbeing of yourself, your family and the world. Shop local! Your body and community will thank you for it."

Lisa Lovick, A Slice Of Orange
