Alive and Cooking

Big day at the farm today with Clover Hill to be the back drop for chef James Reeson to do his cooking show on WIN 4 “Alive and Cooking”.

Filmed on location at some of the country’s top food and wine regions as well as in James’ kitchen, James prepares a feast of delicious dishes for the occasional cook and cooking expert.

The show takes you to the heart of cooking, on location across Australia, inland, on the coast and using the best wines, oils, and different foods developed by each region.

What a perfect way to celebrate quality, authenticity and local producers and produce. The perfect vehicle for connecting food production with food consumption. We food producers salute you James and Win4 

We also get very excited when we have the opportunity to showcase the Australian dairy industry to the community. We put a lot of work into ensuring that everything is spick and span and that means putting in a lot extra hours to ensure this happens.

Ready to go

Nick assures me he will be clean shaven and well dressed for the scenes in the dairy. I roll my eyes. “Leave it to the last minute Nick” that my gorgeous son Nick a complete contrast to me 


Even the poddies are ready to be part of the action. How cute are they


And its all still happening in the background at the farm. Loads of grain arrive and unload. Michael is in trouble for making to much noise with mixer wagon and Louise is up in the calf shed making sure her babies put their best foot forward


Meanwhile back at the filming we have moved the action to make desert get the best light. This episode has been called off 5 times due to rain and they have bought the rain with them again today


Who was the lucky girl who got the main course. Then it rained and the dairy shoot had to be put off again. The hard workers shake their heads but at least we have the cleanest dairy in Australia

Catch some of the action here and I will be sure to let you know when the program airs
