Torello Farm (#039)

Torello Farm – Dromana

Torello Farm is an old market garden that has been given a new life and is now growing a diverse range of produce including specialty potatoes, heirloom vegetables and tree ripened fruit. Each season you will find new lines of vegetables, as well as tried and tested varieties.

On our property in Tuerong we also grow Belted Galloway cattle and Dorset Down sheep. We have specially chosen these heritage breeds because they are slow growing and produce wonderful flavoured meat.

All the fruit and vegetables we grow, as well as our grass fed, dry aged Belted Galloway beef, is available for sale at our farm gate shop. We also source produce from other local farms. Our shop is open 7 days,  8am – 6pm (closed public holidays).

M Edwards & Sons (#035)

M Edwards & Sons Pty Ltd

Donald, Jean and Brendon Edwards are premier growers & packers of quality certified organic apples. The farm is bordered by virgin eucalyptus trees and is nestled on Melbourne’s doorstep at Red Hill South. They have been growing apples for 5 generations since the first tree was planted by Don’s great grandfather in the late 1880’s. The orchard has grown with the local community until the early 1980’s when alternative farming methods were looked at due to concerns of the potential negative effects of toxic sprays on families in the area. It was not an easy path and there were many failures for every success.

In the mid 1980’s our organic principles had been put into practice and the orchard was certified organic by NASSA in 1987.

The full flavour, high colour of these apples is brought about by a combination of healthy soil and fresh clean water.

The selection of old apple varieties such as Gravenstein, Jonathan, Golden Delicious,Granny Smith along with newer varieties of Royal Gala, Pink Lady, Fuji, Sundowner and the latest variety Jazz.

Other crops grown on the certified organic orchard include Pears, Cherries, Lemons, Limes.

The organic cherries these are available from December to January dependent on the weather.

We also have certified organic juice that is crushed from our own fruit.

The apple juice is a big favorite and we now have the apple and pear as well.

You can obtain our produce directly from Peninsula Fresh in Baxter or if in Melbourne the Queen Victoria Market at Market Organics.

Cherries can be obtained directly from the farm during Cherry Season.

Peninsula Fresh Organics (#002)

Once conventional farmers, Wayne and Tash Shields of Peninsula Fresh Organics make a very convincing case for going organic. Wayne is a fifth generation farmer and had experienced problems with unexplained toxins in imported horticultural chemicals which wiped out a complete crop and damaged others. They became certified organic in 2010 and have seen their land come back into balance with frogs, snakes and ducks returning to their Mornington Peninsula property. The Shields grow around 40 lines, including heirloom and heritage vegetables, contemporary hybrids and some vegetables which vanished off most supermarket shelves many years ago but which can be found in the Shield’s rustic farmgate shop.

Cape Schanck Olive Estate (#020)

Cape Schanck Olive Estate is a family owned and managed olive grove located in the southern tip of the Mornington Peninsula. The grove is sandwiched between the wild ocean waters of Bass Strait and the calmer waters of Port Philip Bay.  Mornington Peninsula is a foodie’s destination where market gardens, vineyards and farmgate producers abound.

The cool maritime, Mediterranean climate of the region is perfectly suited to producing premium quality extra virgin olive oils and wines.

The olive grove was established in May 2006, with the planting of two thousands olive saplings. Five varieties of olives were selected; three Italian (Frantoio, Coratina, Leccino), one French (Picholine), and one Spanish (Picual); each with its unique oil aroma and tasting profile. Where possible organic practices and principles are adopted in managing the grove and farm.  In 2010, our grove produced enough olives to make our first extra virgin olive oil with the newly commissioned Alfa Laval olive press. We are excited to bring to market our labour of love in each bottle of our extra virgin olive oil.
