Our Farm

Our Farm is located in Bacchus Marsh, on the fertile banks of the Lerderderg River. Come and pay us a visit, just make sure you bring your gumboots!

Ask for Sam, he’d be happy to take you out to the farm to see how we grow our farm fresh produce.

We've got over 80 years of horticultural growing experience, and we think the results speak for themselves - high quality, crispy, fresh produce, with individual character and multi-dimensional flavour. Absolutely delicious!

We harvest direct from Our Farm every day, so we're always delivering farm fresh and tasty produce. By growing the produce ourselves, we think we can give a little extra. From planting through to harvest, we invest our own hard work and expertise into tending and cultivating our crops.

Our Famous Grandpa's Tomatoes

 

 

 

Our famous tomato – named after Angie, the seed for Grandpa’s tomatoes has been passed down through the generations of our family. They are full of flavour and have a unique shape – they really are the way tomatoes were meant to be!

 

Our Grandpa’s tomatoes are great when used in sandwiches, or used as a base for a pasta sauce. Sprinkle with a little salt to extract full flavour – they are absolutely delicious! 
We also have our very own range of relish, chutney, pasta and tomato sauces (and more!) made from produce harvested from our farm!! The range is available both at the shop or for you to order online!!
