Farmer’s wife and Mum creates award-winning food range to help her family weather the drought and fires
The Tweed is home to one of the region’s most reputable farming families ‘The Foysters’. Now in their 5th generation, they own and operate several farms across Northern NSW and far North Queensland. Well known for their quality avocadoes, lychees, watermelons and pumpkins, their ability to dig deep into their resourcefulness, determination and resilience in finding solutions to the ongoing impact of extreme weather conditions is commendable.
Being 5th generation farmers, the Foysters’ live by their belief of deep connection in what they eat and who they are, being the inspiration behind Julia Foysters vision to create a product that would not only bring incredible flavours to kitchens around the nation but also create an opportunity for her family to have another stream of income, subsidising some of the loss from the climate challenges.
Julia’s vision was to create a product straight from the farmer to the plate and just over a year ago she launched award-winning “Tweed Real Food” which is exactly that, real. Every product contains only real food. The perfect blend of all-natural ingredients stand-out to bring your daily dishes to life with authentic flavours made right there on the family farm.
Tweed Real Food have handcrafted a beautiful selection of the highest quality products including unique spice blends and nut-free dukkha’s ready to add delectable flavour to almost any meal. Their diverse range of vinegars includes the famous Bourbon Maple Splash and award-winning ‘Tropical Splash Balsamic Vinegar’, taking home the silver medal at the 2019 Australian Food Awards (AFA).
