Bairnsdale beetroot, not really.


I have been informed that the post I did last week about the baby beetroot from Bairnsdale is incorrect.  Yes the beetroot is processed in Bairnsdale at Vegco but apparently the crop is actually from Cowra, not local after all.

Thank you Emma Field, a Gippsland reporter for the Weekly Times, for giving me the correct information.

This information was rather disappointing as it means the food miles are much greater than I thought!
