WOT'S YA CAPER
CAPER FARM & NURSERY
LOCALLY GROWN IN CENTRAL GOLDFIELDS VICTORIA
100% AUSTRALIAN GROWN
Owners Narie Preston & Mark Cousins are hands on when it comes to picking, sorting and processing the crop.
Farm fresh capers and caperberries take an extraordinary amount of time, care and preparation.
Capers are all hand picked as they are too delicate for machinery to handle.
Capers have a unique flavour that is pleasantly sharp & quite appetizing. They add a subtle zest and pungency that can be utilised to brighten up many dishes.
Capers direct from the farm
Whether a one-off pack or a recurring subscription, you too can dine on the same premium quality capers that we supply to many of the finest restaurants in Australia
Narie & Mark are hands on farmers waking at the crack of dawn each day to tend the crop. The crop is hand picked and sorted then taken to the processing plant near by.
Bealiba caper farm has been established for many years and during busy times employs extra help where needed. Prior to packaging every caper is inspected for quality with only the finest capers passing quality control. As each caper is hand picked from the outset the quality control begins there.
Narie & Mark have a fun outlook on life, loving the outdoor lifestyle and the fresh country mornings. They grow the bulk of their own veggies and spices expanding their passion and buying a caper farm that also produces olives.
Cooking is another passion both Narie and Mark share creating head turning recipes using capers as the star ingredient.
