Community Pickling Day

Come and get your pickle on at Culture Club's inaugural Community Pickling Day on Saturday February 4.

We have partnered with Glenlyon's Adsum Farmhouse who are growing gherkins especially for the day. So if you don't have your own homegrown cucumbers to bring along, you can pre-order Adsum Farm organic gherkins which will be freshly picked on the morning of the pickling day:

$6 per kilo
$20 for 4 kilos

Pls email your order to by Saturday January 28 and pay on the day.

Things to bring along:
  • exact change if you've ordered Adsum Farm gherkins
  • as many clean jars + lids as you'll need for your pickles
  • salt, garlic cloves, black peppercorns, bay leaves, fresh dill or dill seeds, mustard seeds, leaves containing tannin (grape, cherry, oak, horseradish, green or black tea)

Looking forward to seeing you there!

We have just updated the Vegie Box page of our blog, so please have a read through and email us if you'd like to order a box of Captains Creek Organics' local goodies. Pickle 'em, juice 'em, cook 'em or just munch 'em.
