  • Description

    Description

    We are the only grower of pumpkin seeds and other foods in Australia. We grow, harvest and produce a range of organic foods from oils to chocolate seeds and nuts in our factory. On the 13 hectare farm we have vegetable gardens and large paddocks to look after along with a processing factory.

    Run by young couple, Sharan and Jay in the Alpine region at the foothills of Mount Buffalo in Victoria near Myrtleford/Bright. The farm and Factory/shop is run with organic Biodynamic methods. We have a river running by the farm which is great for swimming and fishing, a few farm animals and golden retriever. The farm and food processing requires physical effort. As the farm is set up for growing food for health we do not allow drugs or smoking. Sharan is of SLOVENIAN background and Jay has lived in Europe.

    We look forward to sharing our farm and home with you.
