Melbourne, Victoria (PRWEB) September 20, 2012
Nominations for the delicious. Produce Awards 2013 are now open. Decided by a panel of top chefs and food experts, each year the awards acknowledge Australian producers who are committed to quality and sustainability, as well as those who support them.
Seven Hills Tallarook is a large, 600 acre rural property in Tallarook, Victoria. Originally opening in 2007 as a goat farm, Seven Hills has now expanded to include student courses, training, and farm stay experiences.
Seven Hills Tallarook has produced award winning meat, and has been a finalist at the delicious. Produce Awards for the last 3 years in a row. “Its our time next year” says managing director and hands on farmer Taylan Atar. The delicious. Produce Awards showcase some of Australia’s finest producers all the while building awareness of culinary regions, and recognising the importance of sustainable farming and production processes. Seven Hills Tallarook work hard to ensure that their produce is of the highest quality.
“Our farm is built using sustainable farming techniques,” says Atar. “We use solar and wind to harness electricity. Our water comes from captured rainwater, underground bores and natural river systems. We are strong believers in sustainable living, and work hard to make sure our produce demonstrates this.”
“We’re hoping that we can take out the top prize at next year’s awards, and will continue to work hard to make sure our efforts are recognised”. “Our goat meat is used by some of Australia’s best chefs including Matt Wilkinson, celebrity chef and co-owner of Melbourne’s ‘Pope Joan’ Cafe.”

About Seven Hills Tallarook
Seven Hills Tallarook use sustainable energy to produce their own electricity harnessing wind and solar power. Their pristine water comes from captured rainwater, underground bores and natural river systems. The animals roam freely in 20 to 40 acre paddocks.
Each paddock is equipped with shelter to protect the animals from the elements. They are fed a rich diet of Pellets which are readily available on demand and are hand fed fresh fodder 3 times a week that is delicately sprouted in our own fodder factory.
Seven Hills Tallarook’s key strengths lie in the ability to produce their own product from “paddock to plate”. They guarantee both quality and consistency without compromise. They recognise that the biggest concern in the foodservice Industry is supply and consistency and that customers want to be reassured that their goat meat supplier provides a product that is of the same quality and standard every time.
